Bobby Deol is currently witnessing a huge second wind in his acting career courtesy the OTT platform. Both Class of ’83 on Netflix and Aashram on MX Player soared on the popularity charts, especially the latter, and a wide demographic of the audience have woken up the the criminally underrated talent of this enigmatic actor, at least those not well versed with his initial phased. His fans though have always been well acquainted with his acting chops from movies like Gupt, Soldier, Badal, Bichhoo, Humraaz, Ajnabee and Yamla Pagla Deewana, Dilllagi, Bardaasht and Naqaab, not to mention how he had delivered seven hits in his first ten years in Bollywood (Barsaat, Gupt, Solider, Badal, Bichhoo, Ajnabee, Humraaz in that order). It’s just that the younger audience and non-Bollywood buffs are waking up to Bobby Deol’s talent and charm all over again.
On the theatrical front, too, Bobby is steadily again making waves, too. While Poster Boys, Race 3 and Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se didn’t perform to expectations, the actor delivered a superhit Diwali release with Housefull 4, where he was a part of a large ensemble cast, and now, he looks set to further boost his box-office returns. Sources down South, linked to a major production house, have exclusively revealed to BollywoodLife that Bobby Deol is in advanced talks to star as the main villain of a big-scale South movie on the level of Baahubali or 2.O. Furthermore, a big-name superstar is said to be on board as the lead hero though we’re waiting on some word about the identity of said superstar.
Our sources further reveal that Bobby Deol and his team are working out the finer details of the project with the makers before he signs on the dotted line as the actor wants a few tweaks made to his character so that it appears as powerful as that of the hero. Word is that both the makers and the film’s hero seem willing to oblige his wishes. Fingers crossed that his news indeed comes to pass, what say.
