When Bobby Deol Had Spilt The Beans On Getting Replaced By News Faces; Actor Had Revealed Getting Into Alcohol Addiction During ‘Bad Phase’
Bollywood actor Bobby Deol has returned to films with Salman Khan’s Race followed by Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se which bombed at the box-office. Last year, Bobby was seen in Housefull 4 which minted money at the box-office and OTT releases like Class Of ’83, Ashram and its 2nd installment. For almost 4-5 years, Bobby Deol stayed away from the limelight and we saw very less of him on the big screen. But Deol has termed that phase as the bad phase of his life and calls it his ‘darkest past. During the conversation, Bobby Deol had opened up on getting replaced by new faces in the films.

Earlier, in October this year, Bobby Deol had opened up about his darkest past and told Pinkvilla, “I was getting offers and they were not great films. I chose a certain kind of films. They didn't do well and they kept pushing me backwards in my career. I just gave up one day. When I started, there was no PR and it was all just kicking in slowly. I didn't have a clue about it and soon enough, despite giving hit films, I saw that I was being replaced with other new faces. Yes, I wasn't getting work so I thought my career has ended, how will I be an earning member of my family. So it is important to have that fear.”

He went on to reveal that he got into alcohol and lost his control over life. He shared that his wife and kids used to ask him why he doesn’t go to work. He told the portal, “While I was doing these films, I got into alcohol which is the worst thing you can do to yourself. My family looked at me with such sadness in their eyes. They were all worried and felt when will Bobby come out of it? My kids kept asking my wife, "Why doesn't papa go out to work?" And that suddenly snapped me out of it.”

“Then, I started meeting producers but they couldn't see the hunger in me. It was then that Salman (Khan) who I lovingly call mamu had given a piece of advice. He said I climbed on your brother (Sunny) and Sanjay Dutt's shoulders during my bad phase. You also need to do films with another actor. So, I took it seriously and told me to let me climb on yours, then," he had concluded saying.
