“Can the death of an unknown woman test the loyalty of 5 friends? We’ll find out soon in Penthouse.”
In an interview with IANS, Bobby Deol opened up on his career going down the hill. He admitted that it took him some time in order to accept the fact that he’d have to settle for roles lesser than the lead.
He told IANS:
“I used to be a big star once upon a time but things didn’t work out. My market value went down. I went through a phase where I couldn’t understand why this happened and I started giving up.”
He then added that it was when his kids wondered why he was at home, did he realize that it was time to get back to work.
“When I saw my kids noticing me sitting at home, it dawned on me that I am an actor and my job is to perform and play characters, and not just the main lead. As an actor, I realised that I needed to prove myself and that’s how I started looking at things.”
He further said:
“This is why I am getting so much work now. People have appreciated my hard work and have seen that I have the capability of doing different roles.”
Besides Bollywood deals such as ‘Apne 2’ and ‘Animal’ coming up, Bobby also has projects such as ‘Love Hostel’ and ‘Aashram’ season 2. When he talked about the love that he has been receiving from fans, especially for the OTT series Ashram, he said
“I don`t know what to feel. It is the love of my fans plus the new fans that I have made who helped me receive this award. They appreciated my work and the web series was watched by so many people. Their appreciation has helped me get this award and I am so grateful for that.”
