Bobby Deol also mentioned that he was 22 when the shooting was started for Barsaat but got released when he was was 26.

Bobby Deol has become the talk of the town ever since Animal was released. In the film, which was released on December 1, 2023, his performance was loved by fans. He has been getting an overwhelming response. However, Bobby Deol recently opened up about his debut film Barsaat Delay, and how he was frustrated with continuous changes.

Speaking at the Jagran Film Festival, Bobby said, “I started shooting for the film very early and Shekhar Kapur was the director. We shot for the film for 27 days. He then got an offer from Hollywood to make Bandit Queen. Shekhar said, ‘I will do Bandit Queen and come back to do Barsaat,’ But my father told him that he didn’t want to delay it. He told Shekhar, ‘You go do your film, I will find somebody else.’ And I think Rajkumar Santoshi was waiting to direct my film. I got lucky with him.”

In the same interview, he also said that changes after the new director came on board were frustrating. “I was 26 when my film was released, I was 22 when I started shooting for it. After Shekhar left I had to wait for a year or so for the shooting to start again. Even then it took two years to make. The script kept changing. I took up running, playing drums, bike riding and other things to fit into different character requirements according to the changes in the script. It was frustrating,” he added.

Talking about Barsaat, the film also starred Twinkle Khanna in the lead role. The film was a huge success at the box office. Up next, Bobby Deol will be seen in the Tamil film Kanguva which also stars Suriya and Disha Patani.

Bobby Deol is celebrating his birthday today. On this special day, his elder brother, Sunny Deol took to his Instagram handle to send birthday wishes to the Animal actor. Sunny shared a series of pictures with his brother and called him ‘My Lil Lord Bobby’.
