Bobby Deol On Nepotism, Battling Depression And Making Wrong Career Choices: ‘For Three Years, I Was Totally Lost In My Own Sorrows’-EXCLUSIVE
Actor Bobby Deol is currently riding high on the success of his latest release ‘Love Hostel’ where he played cold-blooded and ruthless killer Vijay Singh Dagar. His terrific performance in the film has left everyone in awe of the actor as he renders an emotionless killer to perfection. In his career spanning over more than two decades, Bobby has delivered some power-packed performances but he also had has his fair share of struggles and rejections. In a recent interview with SpotboyE.com, the actor poured out his heart and opened up about the dark and sad phase of his life.

Right from nepotism, battling depression to making wrong career choices, the Soldier actor was at his candid best. Bobby shared with us, “I am lucky and blessed that I was born to my father and mother. I never chose to be in this family, I was born in this family so it was no fault of mine. I truly believe that no matter in which family one belongs to, be in the film industry or outside if people don’t want to watch you they will not. When I started my career, people love watching me on the screen and that’s why I got the work. If I wasn’t loved in my first film, I would not have got work so easily. I kept getting work, I gave hits after hits but then I eventually made some wrong choices, things did not work and I didn’t get work. If we see like this if dad is a legend in the industry, then I would have worked all the time. So, a father in every industry, can’t help a son if he fails.”



Speaking about his depressed phase, Bobby stated, “For three years, I was totally lost in my own sorrows, pitting myself. The only person who helped me to come out of this was myself. Your family can support your whole life, but they can’t make you stand up and go to work. So, I had to start believing in myself. It was hurtful to see my family getting hurt seeing me like that, and then something snapped in my mind and I said to myself.. I have to prepare myself as they are fans who still want to see me in films. It was just that I have to start believing in myself and I tried to be positive. It was tough back then. It is still tough although people are now appreciating my work. But it is always going to be tough for an actor.”

“My journey has made me a better person and a better actor. I have seen many ups and downs in my life. I understand myself now better than maybe I did 10 or 15 years back. So, I have learned a lot throughout my journey,” the actor further mentioned.
