During Career Slump, Bobby Deol Turned To Alcohol
MUMBAI (IANS) – Bobby Deol, on the chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ said he withdrew from the industry when his films didn’t work, adding that he started self-pitying himself, and became negative about everything.
Bobby was accompanied by his brother Sunny Deol on ‘Koffee With Karan’, hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar.
The ‘Badal’ fame actor has made one of the strongest comebacks with the crime drama web series ‘Aashram’.
Talking about the low phase in his career, Bobby said, “I just took on drinking a lot, I was sitting at home. I used to keep cursing and saying, why don’t people take me? I am good, why don’t they want to work with me? I think I became so negative about everything, that there was no positiveness coming from me. “
Then, he said, “Suddenly I heard my son saying, ‘you know Mom, Papa sits at home and you go to work every day’. Something snapped in me. I just said, no I can’t. It was a slow process, but when I got out of it, it took me time to get into the right mind frame to become okay. It can’t happen overnight. My brother, my dad, my mom, my sisters, they were always there,” he shared.
The ‘Ajnabee’ actor said: “You cannot always do anything holding someone’s hand. You have to walk on your own feet. Then things start changing. I became more focused, more serious, and when you focus you have that energy in you. I mean I have gone and met so many people, I said to myself, I will go and meet people, tell them I want to work with you all. I came to you also, you still haven’t worked with me.”
Deol is now shooting form ‘Animal’, and Telugu movies ‘Hari Hara Veera Mallu’, and ‘Kanguva’.
