We all have witnessed celebrity kids entering the Bollywood and film industry with such ease as compared to outsiders. Some become successful and others don’t because at last, what matters the most is talent, hard work, and dedication. Bobby Deol, son of Dharmendra Singh Deol stepped into Bollywood in 1995 with the film Barsaat. Despite failing a lot of times, he still strived to make a mark in the industry. Moreover, he confessed in an interview that he was on the verge of becoming an alcoholic due to stress and work.
But as it is said, there is dawn to every dusk. Nevertheless, Lord Bobby is back in action after his role in Race 3 and his astonishing performance in the web series Ashram.
Here are some of the films that were originally intended for Bobby Deol, but he couldn’t do them.
Jab We Met
Instead of Kareena and Shahid, Bobby and Ayesha Takia were to be featured as Geet and Aditya. For unknown reasons, the former duo replaced the latter one.
Director and producer Rakesh Roshan wanted the original brothers to be the lead of this movie: Sunny and Bobby. This happened when Ajay Devgan and Shahrukh Khan were agreeing to work together so Rakesh Roshan thought about the Deol brothers, but Sunny declined as he wanted Bobby to focus on Barsaat.
