How Bobby Deol Landed A Role In Animal Movie: ‘Chalo, Bekaari Ke Din Kaam Aa Gaye,’ The Actor Says

Bobby Said Sandeep showed him a photo from the time he was playing Celebrity Cricket League and during that time he wasn’t working much.

Bobby Deol is one of the versatile actors in Bollywood, seamlessly fitting into any role he’s given a chance to portray. However, some years were challenging for the actor when he found himself without any roles and spent his days at home. Yet, he recently revealed how these free days when he wasn’t working landed him a role in the movie “Animal.”

During the press meet for the trailer launch of “Animal,” the actor expressed, “The condition of my career was such that I never thought I would get such a great role.” Bobby recalled receiving a call from Sandeep for “Animal,” where the director showed him a random photo from his time playing Celebrity Cricket League. This photo convinced Sandeep that Bobby was the right fit for the part.

“Sandeep showed me a photo from the time I was playing Celebrity Cricket League. I wasn’t working much at that time. In the photo, I was looking away into the horizon. He said, ‘I want to cast you because of this expression. This is what I want for the film.’ I said, ‘Chalo, bekaari ke din kaam aa gaye’ (my jobless days worked for me),” Bobby recalled.

Furthermore, Bobby shared his experience working with Ranbir Kapoor, expressing being “lost in his eyes” due to Ranbir’s mesmerizing presence. “I have worked with many stars in this industry, but I’ve never seen anyone who is so humble, so down to earth. When I was working with him, I would just get lost in his eyes. He was so mesmerizing as an actor,” he shared.

“Animal” is set to hit theaters on December 1, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, and many more.
