We have always believed that being a celebrity is one of the best things and everything comes easy to them. But we hardly realise what all they go through in the lives. Their worth is measured with the success of their films and the opening collection decides their destiny. We have seen many actors making a blockbuster debut and then vanishing in the thin air. And for actors, who are born in the family of stars, the journey becomes all the more difficult because of the constant comparisons. Bollywood actor, Bobby Deol too had surpassed such a dark phase in his life. (Also Read: Kajol Reveals Devgan Family Won't Celebrate Durga Puja Post Her Brother-In-Law, Anil Devgan's Demise)
Son of veteran actor, Dharmendra, and brother of an incredible actor, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol had made every girl go weak in her knees with his debut film, Barsaat. Although he had proved his mettle in acting with films like, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Kareeb, Gupt: The Hidden Truth, and Bichhoo, the actor was unable to cope up with the competition. As a result, he had started getting replaced by newcomers. Despite the bad phase of his life, Bobby had bounced back and had begun his second innings.
Bobby Deol had completed 25 years in Bollywood and in an interview with the IANS, his elder brother, Bobby Deol talked about his brother’s splendid journey. Sunny revealed how he always discouraged Bobby from partying and revealed, “I always told him to be disciplined, get up early, be active and do workouts. Bob at that age was more into parties and stuff. I would discourage him from all that. He has grown up. Earlier, he used to be with me on shoot at times, my dad's shoot also. He had groomed himself.”
Bobby had recently made a comeback with the film, Class Of 83, which had premiered on Netflix. His performance in Prakash Jha’s web series, Aashram was applauded by netizens. As Bobby had made a comeback, Sunny shared his happiness and stated, “This is what he wanted to do. This is his passion. He had done a shot in 'Dharam-Veer' (the 1977 superhit starring their father Dharmendra). Bobby has been a boy who deserves far more than what he has got. I am so happy right now in his second innings and the way people are loving him.” (Also Read: Tara Jay Bhanushali Reveals Who She Loves More, Mommy, Mahhi Vij Or Daddy, Jay Bhanushali)
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Ashram actor, Bobby Deol had talked about one of the darkest phases of his life and how his kids' had started asking questions from his wife, Tanya Deol about him not going out for work. He had revealed, "While I was doing these films, I got into alcohol which is the worst thing you can do to yourself. My family looked at me with such sadness in their eyes. They were all worried and felt when Bobby would come out of it? My kids kept asking my wife, "Why doesn't papa go out to work?" And that suddenly snapped me out of it."
The Ajnabee actor had also revealed that all the scripts that he had received in that phase were not convincing at all and that was the reason why he had started getting worried about the end of his career. He had revealed, "Yes, I wasn't getting work, so I thought my career has ended, how will I be an earning member of my family. So it is important to have that fear. I was getting offers, and they were not great films. I chose a certain kind of films. They didn't do well, and they kept pushing me backwards in my career. I just gave up one day."
