In an exclusive conversation with Bobby Deol he spoke in length about the phase in his life.
He says, “I am glad I am doing POSTER BOYZ. I don’t know how apt this film is for my comeback, but I liked the subject and it’s such an amazing role which I have played. I was never offered a middle class role as I don’t look that way, therefore when I was given this role I readily accepted it as this is one such role which I had to go through number of workshops before we began to shoot.”
Speaking further about him going under the knife he said, “There were many stories surrounding about me saying that I am being snob and turning down the offers, the truth is I wasn’t getting any good script, I felt low, I was trying to work on myself, improve myself and reinvent myself. Reinventing is just a term used in our industry. It is basically getting oneself in the right frame of mind and being positive and then just trying to move forward. I had grown beard as I was working on a script which didn’t took off. Between this, I went through a phase where I was totally disappointed, low in life with nothing going my way. I fought those battles and came out of it. I don’t look back at all that negativity and the low phase of my life. I am happy just thinking those things will work. I have POSTER BOYS and I am doing YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA PHIR SE. So, things are moving forward and one has to be positive.”
Furthermore he said, “Then social media fiasco happened when I was trolled for being DJ Bobby Deol. I had gone for an event wherein I was just enjoying my time and suddenly after a month I was trolled. I can’t really help with the entire trolling scenario. I didn’t even play the music organizers did.”
At the moment Bobby Deol is very happy and he is not afraid of failures and his fans still want to see him performing on the silver screen so he is eager to move forward on a positive note.
Ask about box office and pressure he says, “I am nervous and I have been that way. I will not be there in town. I will head to Manali as Sunny Bhaiya is shooting there, (smiles).”
On being asked him about the current lot of actors he likes, Bobby opined, “All of them are hardworking and have their own skills. But I like Alia Bhatt.”
