Bobby Deol Wants To Step Out Of His Comfort Zone
Bobby Deol, whose career regained life last year after starring in Race 3, now wants to experiment with more roles
Bobby Deol is one of the most famous celebrities in Bollywood, especially of the 90s. Son of veteran star, Dharmendra, he started his career in 1995 with Barsaat, starring opposite Twinkle Khanna. He later signed on films such as Gupt, Soldier and Ajnabee amongst many others, which went on to become hits. However, his career was slowly declining. Audiences stopped seeing him in some of the big films, but in 2018, Bobby made a grand comeback with the third instalment of the hit franchise, Race. He starred next to superstar Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez and many others. And now, he wants to finally get out of his comfort zone.
Speaking to Mid-Day, the actor discussed that he is not bothered by failure or successes. He said, “If success is a high, then failure is the after-effects of that high. And like any downer, it can leave you feeling depressed. So you need to keep things in control and not let them go.” He then continued that leaving Bollywood was a mistake but he is grateful for Salman. “Thanks to him, I got Race 3 without which I would not have landed Housefull 4,” he continued. “I am going out of my way to mingle and learn everything there is to learn. It’s never too late. You’re as old as you are in your mind.”
Bobby also shared, “For me, it was an opportunity to understand that kind of cinema that Housefull promises. Now, I want to step out of my comfort zone and do all kinds of roles – even on digital platforms because that’s what people turn to at the end of a long day to unwind. The younger audience does not have a set image of me, so I can get a little more experiment.” The actor will be next seen in Housefull 4 opposite Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbandha and Pooja Hedge – which is set to hit screens on October 25.
