Salman Khan, a Bollywood-godfather for many star kids and some other pretty ladies in B-town, has now taken over the responsibility of Bobby Deol's career. The Race 3 actors have been busy promoting the movie and Bobby Deol is going all out and grateful for his casting story, no filters.
Race 3 is a sort-of comeback for Bobby Deol in the industry. In multiple interviews, Bobby Deol has expressed his gratefulness towards Salman Khan for helping him with his career. In an interview with mid-day, Bobby Deol revealed that Salman's question to him was "Shirt utarega?". But here's the conversation that led to this question.
The Soldier actor revealed, "I had interacted with Salman casually at a celebrity cricket league. We'd been in touch thereafter. Once he told me, 'Dekh, jab mera career nahi chal raha tha to main, Sanjay Dutt, aur tere bhai (actor Sunny Deol) ke peeth pay chadh gaya.' So, I casually said, 'Mamu, mujhe tere peeth par chadhnay de.' And, one day, he called and said, 'Shirt utarega?' I said, 'Mamu, main kuch bhi karunga.' And that's how Race 3 happened."
He also shared that before he signed Poster Boys, his family and Salman Khan helped him a lot. He said, "I stopped looking after myself. As actors, we have to maintain our body. Slowly, I started to hit a low, and suddenly, I was losing everything. I started pitying myself and drank every day."
Bobby Deol also said that he wants to set a better example for his sons Aryaman and Dharam and hence he changed. "Then Shreyas Talpade came to me with Poster Boys. It may have not done well at the box-office, but I was appreciated. That instilled confidence."
And now, in a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Salman Khan has revealed that he is personally looking into a script and director for Bobby Deol.
He said, "I am personally looking into the story and locking the director for the film. The script will bring Bobby back as a Greek God. Back in the day, Bobby was fondly called 'Jattallion' by friends. It was a grand way of describing him — a good-looking and charming star. And that’s what we’ll bring him back as. The production will be well-timed, will have the right budget and a complete mass appeal. Action and dance will be taken to the next level too. If Bobby thought he worked hard for Race 3, he doesn’t know what’s coming."
Salman Khan also helped Bobby to remain physically fit and helped him to build his physique for Race 3 just like he did for Arjun Kapoor. Bobby Deol will also be seen in Bharat and Sajid Nadiadwala's Housefull 4. Talking about Bobby Deol being in Housefull 4, Salman said, "That’s a great pick for him because it will suit his personality beautifully. Everyone will enjoy him in his hatke look."
Well, we do wish the best for Bobby Deol and hope that his upcoming films will bring him back in action.
