Never felt the need to come out of dad’s shadow: Bobby Deol

New Delhi: Making a space for himself being veteran actor Dharmendra’s son would not have been easy but Bobby Deol says he never felt he was under the shadows of his father.

“I never thought I had to come out of his shadows or was under the shadows. People around me thought like that. One can’t compare the work my father has done. You have to make the right decisions or the luck has to be on your side. Things happen the way they happen, otherwise every actor would be a superstar. For me to achieve even one third of what my father has achieved would be a great achievement,” Bobby said.

Bobby returned to screen this year after a hiatus with Race 3 and the actor insists that he is not the same Bobby anymore.

“I was just not focused earlier. I was happy that I’m an actor and am working. When things started going slow I realised what is happening. My ambition is to just keep working. Doing good work,” Bobby said, “As long as people appreciate you and are happy to see you, then you get good work,” he added.

Bobby currently has Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se up for release which pairs him with his father and brother Sunny for the fourth time. The film is scheduled to release on August 31.
