On His Birthday, Let’s Groove To Bobby Deol’s Greatest Dance Hits This Saturday Night
We love Bobby Deol, even though as 90s kids, he was the name who came into our minds when we thought the words ‘bad actor’. Still, we read a really nice interview of him last year and ever since then, we’re waiting for him to redeem himself by delivering one good film. He has put in the hard yards, and his current physique that he has for Race 3 is as good as anyone in the industry.

When his career had gone for a toss, Bobby had taken support of the bottle. “There was a particular phase where I turned to the bottle and was on the verge of becoming a total alcoholic. My wife, Tanya, who is the most beautiful person in the whole world, a source of constant support, told me, “What’re you doing? This isn’t going to help. Why are you being so self-destructive?” And I am like, I was looking after myself for so long, kya hua? Did the producers and directors chase me? No. And then there was an awakening. I was like, Fuck this shit. I am not going to sulk in self-pity. Not working makes you ill, sad, depressed. It ages you. I am going to bounce back no matter what,” he said in an interview with Huffington Post.
“I guess I was too old-fashioned, couldn’t keep up with the quickly changing times. In my time, the 90s, everything was slow. People didn’t talk about themselves all the time. Your work did the talking. It was rare to see or access a star and that made being one very interesting. There was no social media, no internet, things were generally simpler. Suddenly, there was this transition and I couldn’t adapt to it. But now, I want to change that. I really, really want to change that. I didn’t even realize when my career started slipping away. You usually don’t. Work slows down and before you know it, you are sitting at home more than hanging out on film sets. I used to ask myself: What’s wrong with you, Bobby? Why aren’t you getting work? Add to it the speculations and stories people spin around you,” he added.
Well, letting bygones be bygones, we’d like to remember Bobby by some of his groovy dance tracks, He wasn’t the best dancer, but we don’t think you are one too. So without further ado, let’s set the floor on fire.
