Bobby Deol one of the most talented actors of the Bollywood film industry recently revealed in an interview that he had to go through a rough patch
in his career.

In the interview, he said that he gave up, pitied himself, and turned to alcohol. “When you pity yourself, you will start cursing the world around
you. That is what happened to me for two-three years. I started pitying myself and thought that no one wants to work with me so I relied on alcohol. I started numbing myself and then one day I realized where I was wrong when I saw it in my kids’ eyes that our father stays home all day long,” he said.

He further added, “I saw the same emotion in my mother and wife’s eyes too, so something in me changed and I realized that if I want to move
forward, I cannot wait for someone else to do it, I will have to walk myself. That is when I started working on myself and I have been so busy in the
last two-three years.”

As we are all aware of the insider-outsider debate that’s going on, Bobby Deol to shares his opinion on this. He said, “There’s no such thing as
backing in the industry. Just because my family is from the industry does not mean they have backed me when it comes to working. If that was the case, I would have starred in big films all along. Of course, I am very blessed to be Dharmendra’s son, but I only worked with him in the first film, after that, all the offers that I received or all the films that I did were on the basis of my performances.”

On the professional front, Bobby Deol will soon be seen in Netflix’s Class of ’83. Class of ‘83 is a period police drama produced by Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies Entertainment. The film is slated for release on the 21st of August 2020, Friday. Bobby Deol has another project lined up and will next appear in MX Player’s Ashram.
