It is hard to stay at home after almost 50 days of lockdown. People are running out of ways to spend their time. There are two types of people during the lockdown, one who are staying with their family and yet are disappointed, and others, who are stranded away from their families and are waiting for the lockdown to lift away so that they can rush to meet them. No matter, how much technology connects you with people, everyone is still missing their loved ones, who are living away from them. Bobby Deol is also missing his father, Dharmendra Deol as he is stranded at their farmhouse. (Also Read: Rashami Desai's Mother Reveals Why She Changed Her Name From Shivani To Divya To Rashami)
No matter how old a son gets, his father still remains an idol for him. Being a son of veteran actor, Dharmendra is a blessing in itself. Bobby Deol comes from a film lineage of yesteryear superstar, Dharmendra and has been surrounded by star siblings, Sunny Deol, Abhay Deol, Esha Deol. The Deol trio, Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby, proved that they have the best father-son bond which was quite evident in the three series movie, Yamla Pagla Deewana as everybody worked on their forte, and brought out a laughter riot for their die-hard fans.
In a conversation with the Hindustan Times, Bobby Deol shared that he is missing his father, Dharmendra as he is currently stationed in their farmhouse. He said, “Two days before the lockdown, he went to his farmhouse. When you grow old, you tend to feel low when you are confined. He’s enjoying his time there as he loves nature. Our farmhouse is like heaven on earth and all because of his own efforts. He’s happy growing vegetables there.” We have to agree, Dharmendra ji’s account is proof of his love for farming and animals.
Bobby Deol is enjoying his time with his family, and recently released a poem which he narrated for the front-line warriors, who are working round the clock to fight the pandemic. The video was shot by his younger son. Talking about the experience of collaborating with his son, Dharam Deol, he said, “My son loves cameras. Three years ago when I was shooting for a film, he was chatting with my cinematographer about camera techniques. He had done so much of research. Luckily, he had a camera and he put his hobby to use.”
Talking about his recently launched tribute video, he said “I’ve known Sanjay Masoomm (writer) for years. We’ve worked on a lot of films together. I was so inspired when I heard the poem that he wrote that I thought if I could inspire people and make even a little difference, I should go for it.” (Recommended Read: Gurmeet Chaudhary Talks About Lockdown With Wife, Debina, Says She Gets Upset Every Time I Sleep)
Coming back to Bobby and Dharmendra ji’s relationship, Bobby had made his comeback in the Bollywood industry with Salman Khan starrer, Race 3, and his father had got emotional. In an interview with the Indian Express, he had said, “There are ups and downs in everybody’s life. I have also gone through it, everybody goes through it. However, to rise after every fall is the biggest thing, it is remarkable. And I thank the almighty for it, as he might have wanted Bobby to come back too, and it is the wishes and blessings of our audience, and Bobby also took it up and got back to work. Life is to fight, there is nothing in life without the passion to fight. I am very happy that Bobby is back. Now I see him exercising in the gym more, he is addicted to working out, he is in the gym whenever you see him. Just how I would be found in any of the bars (chuckles), sipping on my drinks. I have lived my life to the fullest like this, have had fun.” (Don't Miss: When Alia Bhatt Had Posed With Future, Sister-In-Laws, Karisma And Kareena For A Magazine Photoshoot)
