He may have seen little success in his first innings, but Bobby Deol believes he has an ace up his sleeve with a big-ticket film like Race 3. The actor hopes that the much-anticipated film, which sees him sharing screen space with Salman Khan, will bring him back in the game. Pictured: Bobby taking selfies with a fan
Recollecting how Salman Khan offered the multi-starrer Race 3 to him, Bobby Deol says, "One day, Salman called me and said, 'Mamu, shirt utarega?' I told him I am ready to do whatever he wants me to. The next day, he invited me over for lunch. I was incredibly nervous. In fact, before I sat down to have the meal with Salman, I excused myself to go to the washroom and I was so nervous that I couldn't even find the tap," he laughs
Bobby Deol says he is glad to have found a strong support in the superstar, who offered him the movie even though his chips were down. "Salman called me at a time when I was focussing on my career again. I am hungry for more work and hopefully, things will turn around"
At 49, Bobby Deol is looking fitter than ever. He credits his mentor for the transformation. "After Salman Khan made me realise that I should take better care of my body, I started training with Prashant Sawant. Once I signed Race 3, I was training with Salman's fitness coach [Rakesh Udiyar] and his assistant, Prajwal"
Apart from taking keen interest in his Race 3 co-star Bobby Deol's career, Salman Khan is going the extra mile for the Deols. In a bid to ensure that Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se grabs maximum eyeballs, the superstar has decided to attach the promo of the laugh riot to his actioner, that releases on June 15
While the trailer of Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju will be screened with the Eid release, it was at Salman Khan's behest that the producers also decided to add the first promo of Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol starrer to the line-up
