Bobby Deol, or most fondly known as ‘Lord Bobby’ to most of his fans, has been grabbing all the attention for a long time now. Shedding off his chocolate-boy, romanticised image on-screen, the actor left everyone startled with his robust physique and cannibalistic role as ‘Abrar’ in the recently released film, Animal. While his swift action moves and blood-soaked stills from the movie have raised goosebumps in many of his fans, Bobby has also been winning hearts for his out-of-the-box entry scene in the film, as he danced with a glass on his head to the tunes of the Iranian folk song, Jamal Kudu. While the song has gone berserk on the internet in no time, the actor opened up on the backstory for choosing such steps for his dance.

Bobby Deol reveals he was clueless about his dance sequence for Jamal Kudu

In an interaction with Bollywood Spy, Bobby Deol talked about his viral entry sequence in the film, Animal wherein he could be seen doing a drunk dance with a glass on his head to the tunes of the Iranian wedding folk song, Jamal Kudu. The actor firstly credited the filmmaker, Sandeep Reddy Vanga for having a great taste of music and added that after listening to the song, he was rendered clueless as to how he should perform on it. He said:

“He (Sandeep Reddy Vanga) had made me listen to the music beforehand. He has got a great sense of music. He has got a great sense of everything about filmmaking. He found the song from somewhere and told me I will play this in your introduction. When we started shooting, the choreographer said, You do it. I was like, what will I do? I started dancing and he told me, no, no. Don’t do it like Bobby Deol. Then Saurabh, who plays my brother, I told him, Can you do and show? How would you do it?”

“Then I suddenly remembered the time when I was small and we used to go to Punjab. I remembered how we used to get drunk and keep glasses on our head. I never understood why we did it. It suddenly came in my mind and I did that. Sandeep liked it.”
