Bobby Deol was a treat to watch when he walks to the tunes of the title song in the Hindi film “
Soldier”. With his long hair, dimpled smile and a tousled look he was quite a heartthrob among the young girls. Born on January 27 1969 to a Punjabi family Bobby Deol is born to yesteryear superstar Dharmendra. His sibling is Bollywood actor
Sunny Deol. Thriller films are Bobby Deol’s forte and he also played the negative character who is the prisoner of circumstances. His hit list includes Barsaat, Soldier, Gupt, Badal, Dostana, Humraaz, Badal, Bicchoo, Ajnabi etc. The film Gupt skyrocketed his career; his role in the film was very much appreciated. Soldier is also a successful film in his career.
Originally known as Vijay Singh Deol, Bobby Deol was credited with the Filmfare Best Debut Award for his brilliant performance in “Barsaat” (1995). On his personal front Bobby Deol is happily married to Tanya Ahuja and has two sons. He is not only a good actor but also a good human being. The film “
” saw the three Deols (father and two sons) sharing screen space and the film was declared a hit.
Yamla Pagla Deewana
was another film which saw the Deols sharing screen space and it was successful at the box office. Bobby Deol has two Filmfare awards to his credit.
Though he proved his mettle in thriller films Bobby was not so successful in the genre of romance. He might have become a prominent star through proper efforts, but unfortunately he didn’t become very successful even after facing few hits. All the same, his level-headedness can be proved when he said that he knows how to handle success and failure with equanimity.
Nowadays, his father Dharmendra’s home productions are the only outlet to express Bobby’s acting skills. Thankfully Bobby didn’t rely only on films and now he owns a restaurant of his own in Mumbai.
