The film ‘Animal’ is releasing in theaters on December 1. Bobby Deol will be seen as a villain in this. It is being said in media reports that Bobby’s character in the film is very unique. Not a single dialogue of his will be heard in ‘Animal’ but he will be no less than a surprise package.

By the way, ‘Animal’ is a very important film for Bobby in terms of career. He has been in Bollywood for 28 years but till date he is yearning for a blockbuster film. Out of his 40 films, 28 have proved to be disasters and only 6 have been hits. In bad times, he asked Salman Khan for help and said, ‘Mamu, give me work’.

Bobby made his debut as a hero with the film ‘Barsaat’ released in 1995. Twinkle Khanna also started her career with this film. There were many difficulties in releasing the film. In an interview, Bobby had told that it took five years to make it because initially Shekhar Kapur was going to direct the film but after 27 days of shooting, he left the film ‘Barsaat’ for the film ‘Bandit Queen’.

After this, filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi joined the film but he asked for some changes in the script, due to which its making got further delayed. When the making of the film ‘Barsaat’ started, Bobby was 22 years old and at the time of its release he was 26 years old. The film was a superhit. By playing the role of Badal in his very first film, Bobby got recognition across the country and also received the Filmfare Best Debut Award.

‘Barsaat’ was made for Rs 10 crores. Its total earning was Rs 19.56 crore. The film had also broken the opening record of Shahrukh Khan’s 1995 film ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’. The opening day collection of ‘Barsaat’ was Rs 68 lakh and the weekend collection was Rs 1.96 crore. At the same time, DDLJ did a business of Rs 55 lakh on the first day and Rs 1.56 crore on the first weekend.

After the film ‘Barsaat’, Bobby gave 3 hits in his career like ‘Gupt’ (1997), ‘Soldier’ (1998) and ‘Badal’ (2000). But despite this Bobby did not get special films. He did some films like ‘Kismat’, ‘Bardasht’, ‘Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyon’, ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’, ‘Nanhe Jaisalmer’, ‘Poster Boys’ but all of them flopped. He started getting small side roles. In 2011, he worked in the film ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ but Bobby’s career did not get much benefit from this multi-starrer film.

There came a time when Bobby stopped getting good film offers. On one hand, father Dharmendra and brother Sunny Deol are very famous in the film industry. At the same time, Bobby started struggling to make his mark in the film industry. Due to this he started getting worried and started getting drunk.

Bobby had said in an old interview, ‘I started drinking so much that I started feeling sorry for myself. I used to wonder what I lack that people don’t want to work with me. I distanced myself from everyone by taking the help of alcohol.

Around 2014-2016, when there was no work, Bobby became a DJ in high profile nightclubs and pubs. Bobby did this work for almost two years. Once Bobby had a DJ program in a club in Delhi for which all the tickets were sold out but later there was a lot of controversy in this event.

Actually, during the DJ night, Bobby kept playing songs from his film ‘Gupta’ (1997). People started getting bored after listening to the same movie songs again and again. They started creating ruckus. Not only this, they also started demanding their ticket money back from the organisers. Before the uproar could escalate, Bobby Deol left the program and left.

After this controversy, Bobby left the job of DJ. He also tried his hand in business. In 2006, he started a restaurant named ‘Someplace Earth’ in Mumbai. During this time, he started focusing on this and also opened another restaurant in Mumbai. Bobby tried many things but the happiness he got from acting and films, he could not find in anything else.

In an old interview given to Huffington Post, Bobby had said about his bad phase, ‘I looked at the faces of my children in bad times and wondered what they would think about me. I saw the same thing in the eyes of my mother and wife. I started blaming myself after realizing why I was killing myself. Why am I trying to move away from myself? I realized that if I want to do something, I have to work hard for it myself. And then I worked on myself and decided to make a comeback.

Salman Khan helped Bobby Deol in getting his career back on track. Bobby himself had told this in an interview. Actually, Bobby met Salman Khan during CCL (Celebrity Cricket League). There Salman told him that why have you grown a beard, difficult times come in everyone’s life, but one should not give up by accepting defeat.
