Bobby Deol on his debut film ‘Barsaat’: Story of delays and challenges | – Times of India

Bobby Deol has emerged as one of the most promising actors in India. He is flooded with offers regardless of the language boundaries, and the star is currently basking in the success of ‘Animal’ directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. But the actor didn’t always have it all easy, especially not in the beginning. His debut film ‘Barsaat’ faced several delays and took nearly four years to hit the theatres.
‘Barsaat’ which was supposed to be directed by Shekhar Kapur hit a roadblock after the director walked out of the film. While talking at the Jagran Film Festival, Bobby Deol revealed that the director backed out of the project, after filming for 27 days, as Shekhar Kapoor received an offer to direct ‘Bandit Queen’.
While speaking at the festival he said, “I started shooting for the film very early and Shekhar Kapur was the director. We shot for the film for 27 days. He then got an offer from Hollywood to make Bandit Queen. Shekhar said, ‘I will do Bandit Queen and come back to do Barsaat,’ But my father told him that he didn’t want to delay it. He told Shekhar, ‘You go do your film, I will find somebody else.’ And I think Rajkumar Santoshi was waiting to direct my film. I got lucky with him.”
Speaking about the challenges the team faced after, he added “I was 26 when my film was released, I was 22 when I started shooting for it. After Shekhar left I had to wait for a year or so for the shooting to start again. Even then it took two years to make. The script kept changing. I took up running, playing drums, bike riding and other things to fit into different character requirements according to the changes in the script. It was frustrating.”
