Bobby Deol recalls how Salman Khan helped him

The actor said, “I used to play celebrity cricket. Sohail (Khan) has a team and Salman Khan is a mascot and he used to come for one or two matches. So, one day he told me, that, ‘Dekh jab mera career thik nahi chal raha tha, main tere bhai ke peeth pad chad gaya tha, main aage badha, main Sanjay Dutt ke peeth par chad gaya, main aage badha ‘Salman told me, ‘Look, when my career wasn’t going well, I climbed on your brother’s back, I moved forward, I climbed on Sanjay Dutt’s back, I moved forward).”

Bobby added, “We call each other mamu. Toh maine usko bola, ‘Mamu, toh mujhe tere peeth par chadhne de na (So I told him, ‘Mamu, let me climb on your back’). So, then he remembered that, and a couple of years later, I got a phone call from him and he said, ‘Mamu shirt utarega, I said haan mamu main kuch bhi karunga’ (He said, ‘Mamu, will you take off your shirt?’ I replied, ‘Yes Mamu, I’ll do anything’). So, that’s how I got Race 3.”

Furthermore, Bobby Deol showered Salman Khan with praise. He said, “He’s always been there. I think he is completely in love with my dad. The bond they share is just amazing. He has so much respect for him. He has this obsessive love for my dad and for my family. He’s one guy who has got no insecurity. I’ve worked with him.”

On the work front, Bobby will be seen in Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, and Anil Kapoor. Animal will be released on 1st December, 2023. On the other hand, Salman Khan has Tiger 3 which will release on 12th November, 2023.
