Bollywood actor Bobby Deol, who is celebrating his 44th birthday today (Jan 27th), has not been as lucky in the industry as his legendary father Dharmendra and elder brother Sunny Deol. He got a grand debut with the 1995 movie Barsaat opposite Twinkle Khanna but since then he has not been very successful as a solo hero.
Bobby was then seen in the thriller movie Gupt, which had renowned actors like Om Puri, Kajol and Manisha Koirala. But then he was noticed again in the movie Soldier in 1998. Then, Sunny directed a movie called Dillagi, which united the Deol brothers onscreen for the first time. By this time, he gathered quite a good number of fans and made a niche for himself.
After taking a break in 2003, the actor returned with Priyanka Chopra starrer film Kismat in 2004. The film did not bring much luck to Bobby but he continued to get film offers in the form of Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo, Jurm and Tango Charlie. None of these could do much well at the Box Office.
In 2007, the Deol family was first time seen together in the film Apne and Dharmendra played their onscreen father. Despite of having a good story, the film was an average success at the Box office. However, they were not disheartened by the result and united again in 2011 with Yamla Pagla Deewana. It was received well by the viewers as well as by the critics and has been considered as ‘paisa wasool’ entertainer. Bobby is now ready to say ‘Thank You’ to his fans with his next film with the same title. After the success of Yamla Pagla Deewana, he is a little relieved man and is enjoying holiday with family and friends.
We hope his Thank You is welcomed by the audience the same way they did his last film. We wish the actor a very happy birthday and hope the coming year comes with success and joy in his life.
