The son of legendary actor, Dharmendra, brother of iconic actor, Sunny Deol, pressure to succeed in their legacies was always on the shoulders of Bobby Deol. Every time he had acted on the silver screen, people had wanted him to touch the standards set up by his father and brother. Amid those expectations and constant comparisons, the audience had never given proper room to Bobby to showcase his originality. However, the beginning of his career was sensational. With films like Barsaat, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, and Kareeb, he had created a romantic image for himself. But soon, he had proved his acting chops with intense performances in films like Gupt: The Hidden Truth and Bichhoo.
Even then, Bobby Deol couldn't cope with the pressure of his father, Dharmendra and brother, Sunny Deol's legacy that was a constant reminder for him that he need to reach those heights. However, the actor had proved the mettle of his acting chops to the whole world with Prakash Jha's critically acclaimed web series, Aashram. In the series, he portrayed the role of a corrupt spiritual leader, Baba Nirala. The series is a massive hit and is gearing up for the release of its fourth season.
In an interview with India Today, Bobby Deol opened up about the future of his kids, Aryaman and Dharam. The doting father admitted that his sons are interested in working in the film industry. However, Bobby also stressed the importance of education in an actor's life in today's generation. The actor explained the complexity of the film industry and admitted that it's highly uncertain. Thus, one needs to have a backup, and there's nothing better than completing your education so that you can take care of yourself if things don't go your way. Reflecting on the same, Bobby admitted that he is currently very much focused on his sons' education so that they can get into the film industry without fearing about failure. He explained:
"I want my kids to be educated. I think that is very important because our industry is very uncertain and things can either work your way or not work your way. Sometimes, when it's working your way, suddenly things can go against you. I am sure it happens in every profession, but if they have an understanding of the world and educate themselves, they can really take care of themselves."
Going further in the interview, when Bobby Deol was asked what are the reasons behind his sons, Aryaman and Dharam's decision to be a part of the film industry. Answering this, the doting father clearly stated that there's no business like showbiz in the entire world. However, Bobby once again stated that right now, his sons are studying, and they're focused on that. The actor said:
"Obviously, they want to be actors because there is no business like show business. We discuss films at home, we watch films together and they give their viewpoints. So I am sure whatever they decide I will back them up. Right now my sons are studying."
For the unversed, Bobby Deol's elder son, Aryaman Deol is often praised and hailed by the netizens for his looks and physique. While some fans have already predicted that Aryaman could be the next superstar from the Deol family, some are vouching for him to be one of the best actors. In an interview with ETimes, Bobby had addressed the fame and love his son was receiving for his looks all over the internet. Giving the example of his own journey in Bollywood, Bobby had explained that looks don't matter to an actor. Instead, it's how much an actor connects with the audience. Talking about the same, he had stated:
"I know that people have seen Aryaman's pictures on the internet and I feel really proud that they are looking at him as this amazing hunk. As a father I feel proud when I hear that, but when I started my career, everybody thought I was this hunk and a good-looking boy. I've seen that. It's not really about how good looking you are or how bad looking you are. When people really want to see you, they will see you. I had a great run in the beginning of my career, but then I faltered. That's the way the career moves for an actor. Any actor in our industry has never had a good start and a good ending in their careers. It's always been either a bad start, followed by a good ending or vice versa. It's difficult, but I would definitely want to see both Aryaman and Dharam on the silver screen."
On the professional front, Bobby Deol will be seen next in the films, Apne 2 and Animal.
