Celeb In The Spotlight is back again and this time, we have an
interesting one for you. It's none other than the romantic hero Bobby
Born on January 27th, 1967, Bobby is the second son of the
legendary actor, Dharmendra and his first wife Prakash Kaur. He is the
er brother of the macho Sunny Deol, who has also made a name for
himself in the industry.
Being the son of an established and famous actor, Bobby didn't have
to do much to enter the film industry. His very first appearance on the
silver screen was at the mere age of ten where he starred in the 1977
film Dharam Veer.
In the movie, he played the younger version of his own father, Dharmendra.
However, Bobby received his kick-start in Bollywood in 1995 with the release of his debut film, Barsaat. For this movie, Bobby was presented with the prestigious Filmfare Best Debut Award and as they say, the rest is history.
Bobby has gone on to star in many films with many actors from the film industry such as Gupt: The Hidden Truth
, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya
, Dosti: Friends Forever
, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
and many more but none have brought him the fame as his debut film did besides Humraaz
which had him nominated for the Best Actors award. Bobby also
collaborated with Dharmendra and Sunny in family projects such as Dillagi
, 23rd March 1931: Shaheed
and more recently in their upcoming comedy, Yamla Pagla Deewana.
Currently Bobby is happily married to Tanya Ahuja with whom he has two sons, Aryaman (June 2001) and Dharam (November 2004).
