Bobby Deol was the ‘it boy’ of the 90s but will his comeback still hold that charm?


Had social media not existed, Bobby would have probably gotten lost in the pool of yesteryear-stars-who-were-famous-for-a-while, much like Kumar Gaurav, but he inadvertently struck gold. As the likes of Buzzfeed discovered the power of milking nostalgia and Hindi cinema started romancing the bygone era, it became evident that Bobby’s fan brigade still existed. After a long time, Bobby Deol is returning to the big commercial movie game. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App

Gupt, one of the rare Hindi films that really holds your attention till the end, was quite a hit and with that Bobby became a sensation. Words like nepotism weren’t thrown around before a star kid’s debut and hence, Bobby Deol was proudly known as Dharmendra’s younger son. When news came in that Bobby was turning into a DJ, meme makers had a ball at his expense. His older brother Sunny Deol was already the dhai-kilo-ka-haath man and here was Bobby, trying to make googly eyes at the ladies. What he was known for was his swag, even though the word did not exist back in the day. Race 3 is up for release in a few days and Housefull 4 will follow in just a few months; and if you have seen the trailer of Race 3, you will know that this time the man means business. The 90s were a much simpler time. Though it’s hard to remember a film that brought out the acting talent of Deol Jr, it was his unique dancing style that made him famous. With films like Ajnabee and Humraaz, Bobby made an investment that we are sure even he did not realise would yield in adulation. Soldier, too, cemented his position in the industry. In many of his recent interviews, Bobby has spoken about taking up acting jobs to explore his craft, and while we wish him luck on his endeavours, we can only hope that in his comeback with Race 3 he still has the charm that once floored us. Well if DJ Bobby was making you dance to “Gupt Gupt”, you would just go in to re-live those childhood days. Related News

Bobby Deol had the swag even before any of us had even heard the word. This was the time when Abbas-Mustan potboilers were what Hindi film lovers associated with thrillers and frankly, Bobby was the man who made the most out of these films. Bobby was never known for his acting chops. After a string of popular films like Gupt and Soldier among others, Bobby made quite a name for himself in the 90s. His undeniable charisma and those long wavy hair made him stand out in the crowd. Bobby Deol made the most out of Abbas-Mustan thrillers. Soon the news was discredited by the actor, but the entire episode proved that Bobby’s name still had the clickbait power. As the 90s kids grew up and started romancing everything from landline phones to Govinda dancing on the streets, Bobby too became a part of that package. With the onset of 2000s, Bobby Deol appeared in many films which were quite underwhelming (Read: Bicchhoo, Badal) but he was still pretty much in the game. It was expected that with Bobby entering the world of movies, this family would turn into a crackling team. With multiple satellite runs over the years, these films have gotten associated with nostalgia and don’t we all know there is no currency better than that! Bobby Deol plays an important role in Salman Khan starrer Race 3. Twitterati could not stop gushing over shirtless Bobby Deol and though I would like to believe that much of it was just for the sake of nostalgia, it still says that Bobby has earned much love over the years.
