In an interview with Film Companion, Bobby Deol said, “The other day, he was telling me, ‘Beta, main sochta tha ki 70 ki age tak main kaam karunga. Shayad uske baad kaam nahi mile, ya kaam nahi kar paunga. Aur aaj main 86 ka ho gaya hoon aur phir bhi kaam kar raha hoon (I thought I’d work only till the age of 70, and that I wouldn’t be able to get any work after that. But I’m 86 now, and still working)’.”

Bobby continued, “It was the most awesome feeling I got when he said that to me, and that’s exactly what inspires me. I want to work till the last breath I take, because that’s what we are, we’re actors, we want to keep working. He was there in my family, the biggest inspiration, and I didn’t even see him when I had given up in life. Now I see all that around me, my brother, my dad, my cousins, my sisters are working."

Bobby made his acting debut in 1995 with Barsaat. He later appeared in films like Gupt, Soldier, Badal, Bichhoo, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Ajnabee, and Humraaz, among others.
