The selection of his favourite co-star comes easy to Bobby Deol. “Dad might be proficient, and knows just what he needs to attempt to in every scene,” he says of his screen idol Dharmendra and superstar father. Obviously then, the actor is thrilled at the viewpoint of reunifying with his father and brother for Apne 2.
Where the 2007 drama rotated around a family unified by their affection for boxing, Bobby discloses the second instalment will deal a fresh story. Bobby says, “Our chemistry attracts the audience. The Deols are recognized to be a close-knit family. The family relationships were the USP of Apne,” and he will reunify with the duo two years after Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se (2018).
The film is slated to roll by mid-2021. The lockdown may have seen Dharmendra, 85, absorb the straightforward pleasures of farm life, but his old flame has been calling bent him. “Papa can’t wait to face the camera. He has been working since he was an adolescent and maybe a complete workaholic. We’ll absolutely take the mandatory precautions; risking his life during the shoot is out of the question. We hope that by the time the movie rolls, things are going to be better.”
It is obvious that Bobby adores his showbiz second innings, balancing mainstream films Race 3 (2018) and Housefull 4 (2019) with digital presents in Aashram. Though, his self-styled godman act didn’t go down well with a neighbourhood of viewers, who felt that the Prakash Jha-directed web series hurt religious sentiments. I will be able never to do anything which will bring shame to our country. But Aashram reflects what’s happening in our society,” he states. Previous week, MX Player and Jha were served a legal notice, which claimed that the sequence aims “the ancient tradition, Hindu culture and customs” and wanted that the release of the second part is delayed.
