If you are a 90s kid, you know the power of Bobby Deol songs! Yes, the 50-year-old actor may not be everyone's favourite but admit it that his songs are your 12 AM guilty pleasure. Bobby Deol got married to Tanya Deol on May 30, 1996, and they have two sons- Aryaman and Dharam Deol. We all know that Bobby comes from a film lineage of yesteryear superstars- Dharmendra and Hema Malini, and has been surrounded by star siblings- Sunny Deol, Abhay Deol, Esha Deol.

When a Bollywood star has a rich legacy of ancestral stars in the family, it becomes really difficult to not get associated with your past. Bobby Deol recently shared a selfie with his son, Aryaman Deol. Bobby beautifully captioned the following pic as, "If that’s how it feels!! Being 49 was amazing, 50 is going to be even better. I reminiscence the life experiences I have been through and how they have made me grow as an individual. I take the same opportunity to remember the amount of love that all of you dear to me have given me. It is this love that is my strength which keeps me going."
Bobby's caption could further be read as, "My son is symbolic of this change. Finding a friend in his young father. I hope to continue living my life happily with all of you loved ones. I have turned 50 but I’m still always going to be the twenty-something young adult all set to win the world- Love Love Love to all." Immediately, after father-son selfie surfaced online, the internet went mad after seeing Aryaman's transformation and hotness. And guess what? Netizens could not help but directly associate him with his grandfather, Dharmendra. Some started commenting- "Dharam ji, is that you?" and few others said things like- "He is a Hollywood star in making, who resembles Dharamendra." Take a look:
Bobby Deol's son, Aryaman Deol has suddenly become a sensation, and we all can't help but ask if we are going to see him in a Bollywood movie soon. Answering the same question, Bobby had earlier commented, "My son needs to finish his education first. He needs to understand how every profession operates and get that knowledge. Both my sons are studying at the moment, but yes I do want to see them on the silver screen. That does not mean you need to put your education at stake. Study first, and then take the best decision for yourself. But at the end of the day, they will definitely come into films.”
We wonder why did Bobby keep Aryaman hidden all this while? The Soldier actor had once revealed why he keeps his family away from the media scrutiny. He had shared, “I have always tried to keep my family away from the public glare. Plus I do not want my kids to become celebrities before they achieve anything in life. Moreover, I haven’t been brought up that way.”
Talking about nepotism and how being a star son affects one's career in Bollywood, Bobby recently shared, “When I started working, I didn’t reap in any advantages of being superstar Dharmendra’s son. Luckily my son also feels the same and the alleged “star kid” concept. But now I have started going out more often, then there are more media happening to me at the moment. But I never thought about it that paparazzi will spot Aryaman out of nowhere and then all the hype will be created around him!”
Talking more about his equation with his sons, Bobby had once told a media portal, "Fathers and sons, ah! It’s difficult to be friendly. But I am trying to be friendly with my sons (Aryaman and Dharam). I was just sitting with the kids. It’s important that the father makes the first move. I was lucky I was the youngest. I travelled with my dad almost everywhere. (Laughs) I used to love bunking school and going to shoot to eat nice chicken rolls and pastries and all the goodies. I was never allowed to go out of the house after six in the evening. My life was so sheltered, dude! But today’s kids, well, you need to give them that space. You have to let them breathe. I believe in that way. I am from a different generation than my dad. You need to be more broadminded than what your parents were. You cannot let the kids feel restricted. They might react for not having that freedom."
Does Aryaman Deol look like his grandfather, Dharmendra? What do you think?
