Regaining your lost stardom in Bollywood is not an easy task. There is a long list of actors who went all out to revive their career after being away from the arch light for many years. Despite putting in their best efforts, destiny did not favor them like it did in their heydays. However, Bollywood star Bobby Deol is proving to be an exception.
The actor, who used to rule people’s hearts in the 90s and early 2000s, suddenly disappeared from films. After staying away from the business for many years, he made a powerful comeback with Shreyash Talpade’s comedy film ‘Poster Boys’ (2017). Though the film did not fare very well at the box office, the audience loved Bobby in the role of a meek Hindi teacher.
Weeks after the release of ‘Poster Boys’, the news came that Salman Khan has taken Bobby onboard for his upcoming film ‘Race 3’. The actor has not yet completed the shoot for the Remo D’Souza directorial but fresh reports claim that he has bagged another mega-budgeted film. Reportedly, the 51-year-old actor has been approached to play a pivotal role in the fourth installment of ‘Housefull’ (2010).
Like all three previous parts of the franchise, ‘Housefull 4’ is also being bankrolled by Sajid Nadiadwala. Sajid Khan, who helmed ‘Housefull’ and ‘Housefull 2’ (2012), is directing the fourth part of the series. The producer and director both want Bobby in the film. A source told a leading daily, “Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan are close to Bobby and they felt he would fit the role. Talks are still on. They are yet to sign the actor but mostly, he will give the nod to this film.”
Apart from romance and action, Bobby is also known for his great comic timing which he has shown in many films before. Looks like the makers of ‘Housefull 4’ want to use his talent in the next installment of the series and hence want the star to do the film.
‘Housefull 4’ is expected to mount the shooting floor later this year. As of now, Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh are confirmed on the cast. Other actors are yet to be finalized.
Meanwhile, apart from ‘Race 3’, Bobby Deol is also shooting for ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 3’ with brother Sunny Deol and father Bobby Deol. He is also expected to star in Salman Khan’s another film called ‘Bharat’.
