His long, curly tresses, his dimpled smile and his unforgettable dance moves (unlike his father Dharmendra and brother Sunny Deol), made actor Bobby Deol stand out when he made his Bollywood debut with the 1995 romantic-actioner, Barsaat. This was followed by Gupt (1997), and Soldier (1998), through which he charmed his way into the heart of many ladies. We still can’t think of Bobby without playing “Naiyyo Naiyyo” and “Soldier Soldier Meethi Baatein Bol Kar” in our heads. Also, his headshake in his dance numbers, where his curly tresses did the magic, is still a rage among the millennials.
However, Bobby eventually got stuck in the web of similar-looking films (Badal, Barsaat, Bichhoo). It got difficult to tell his one movie from the other. Come the 2000s, and our Bollywood hero found it tough to get hold of some good scripts. While the audience watched his old films on satellite TV, new work eluded him. As Bobby returned via OTT in the last few years, he found a new fanbase. Also, it seems our Baba Nirala can definitely see the future. Don’t believe me? A Twitter account named Bobbywood is an answer to all your doubts. Mind, the creator of the account asserts that it is not a troll account; it celebrates ‘Lord Bobby supremacy’. The actor had also shared a video from the parody account on his Instagram handle earlier.
When Bobby Deol predicted the pandemic 42 years ago
Do you think swab tests were invented by scientists when coronavirus entered our lives? You are mistaken. Bobby was the first man to conduct the swab test in India. Not just this, he also advised on wearing masks and maintaining social distancing. Wish we would have listened to him!
