Bobby Deol made his acting debut in 1995 with the film, Barsaat, and the audience immensely loved his character, 'Badal'. The film was a hit, and Bobby won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. However, the path after that was a complete rollercoaster ride of hit-and-flop films. For the unversed, the period from 2004 to 2013 was the darkest phase of Bobby's career, as his films failed to perform well at the box office.
