Bobby Deol Praises Father, Dharmendra, For Continuing To Work At 87
Bobby Deol, when referring to his father-actor Dharmendra, remarked that even at the age of 87, he still puts in a lot of effort. This year, Dharmendra will appear in Karan Johar’s directed film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, alongside Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. The veteran actor is currently putting the finishing touches on an untitled comedy from Maddock Films that stars Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon.
Bobby Deol is preparing for the release of Apne 2, which also stars Dharmendra and Sunny Deol; he admired his father’s “work ethic and passion for acting” and declared himself “in awe” of him. Bobby added that his father has been “working tirelessly” since he was just 10 or 12 years old.
In an interview with News18 about Dharmendra, Bobby Deol stated, “I’m in awe of my father, who never fails to astonish me with his work ethic and enthusiasm for acting. He still signs good films at the age of 87, and witnessing him in action is incredibly motivating. I’ve never seen anyone else with the level of commitment and passion that he has had since he was just 10 or 12 years old. He has been working nonstop. It’s truly remarkable to witness this.”
Bobby added, “In my opinion, a father should always be respected as a father, and there are some boundaries that should not be violated,” in response to changes in the father-son relationship. But as we get older and our parents become older, the nature of our relationship might change, and we might feel more at ease talking to and expressing ourselves to them. In most families, this is a natural evolution that happens.”
Bobby Deol married Tanya Deol, who is a fashion designer. They have two children Aryaman Deol and Dharam Deol. Prakash Jha’s web series Aashram’s third season, which premiered in June 2022, is where Bobby was last seen. The films Animal and Apne 2 are among his next projects.
