In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Bobby opened up about his past experiences from his dating days when he was young and how dating was a 'taboo' in his family. He shared:

"It's part of growing up. Growing up, you are definitely going to fall in love many times; you are going to have heartbreaks or break hearts. But that's the way you learn about relationships. There is nothing like I was against love or someone was against my love. That happens, we are a very traditional and conservative family. To have boyfriends and girlfriends when I was a kid was a big taboo. But things have really changed now. People have become more broad-minded, more understanding and they know that this is how the world is, you cannot control anyone's emotions or feelings."

Further, in the conversation, Bobby added that he will raise his sons, Aryaman and Dharam differently. He also mentioned that he is quite 'open-minded' whereas his sons are 'very responsible already'. He shared:

"I know how it feels. I am all open. I just want them to concentrate on their studies and not get distracted with girlfriends. I wouldn't stop them from having a girlfriend. My kids are very responsible already, I feel. They are very level-headed. My elder son is studying in New York, doing business management. My younger son is in the eleventh, and he has been doing online classes. They are very much into their studies now, let's see."

Bobby Deol is also a doting son, and talking about his father, Dharmendra, he mentioned what kind of person the veteran actor is in real-life. He said:

"He is not someone who has a defence mechanism. When he speaks, he speaks from his heart. Everybody in their real life, when they are sad, they don't want to show it. When they are happy, that is the only time they show it. My dad is just a romantic, very emotional kind of person, who expresses himself like that. That's what makes him so unique from the rest of the people in the industry."
