Bobby Deol’s career has been a rollercoaster – exhilarating highs followed by soul-crushing lows. The past decade has been particularly turbulent, marked by a hiatus, a box-office dud, and struggles to regain footing. Yet, through it all, there has been a constant – the grounding presence of his mother, Prakash Kaur.
Vikram Bhatt, filmmaker and close friend of Bobby, recently shed light on this influential dynamic. In a conversation with Siddharth Kannan, Bhatt attributed Bobby’s simplicity and humility to his upbringing. “Their mother, Prakash aunty, doesn’t tolerate nonsense,” he said. “If you show her any attitude, she’ll straighten you up. Their upbringing and culture are very correct.”
This no-nonsense attitude, Bhatt suggests, has instilled in Bobby a resilience that helped him navigate the choppy waters of fame. His journey hasn’t been paved with gold. Witnessing his father Dharmendra and brother Sunny face the fickle nature of success was a powerful lesson in itself.
Bhatt’s words carry weight, especially in today’s climate of labeling and judging. He challenges the simplistic “nepo kid” narrative, pointing out that even those born into privilege face their own set of hurdles. Growing up in the limelight comes with its own pressures and expectations, often overshadowing individual talent and struggle.
In Bobby Deol’s case, the unwavering support and grounding provided by his mother seem to have played a crucial role in shaping his character and helping him weather the storms. It’s a testament to the enduring power of family, reminding us that even in the glitz and glamour of Bollywood, it’s the foundation laid at home that truly shapes who we become.
Bobby Deol’s recent success in the critically acclaimed “Animal” serves as a sweet validation of his perseverance. He has proven that talent, coupled with strong values and a grounded perspective, can trump temporary setbacks.
