Lack of ambition worked against me, says Bobby Deol

Bobby Deol says a lack of ambition and a "normal" approach about his status as a star worked against him but he is fully invested in his career now. The 49-year-old actor, who made his debut opposite Twinkle Khanna in the 1995 blockbuster "Barsaat", says had he paid more attention, it would have helped him focus on his work in the industry. Here's more.
Bobby Deol delivered hits such as "Gupt: The Hidden Truth", "Soldier", "Ajnabee", and "Humraaz" among others. Son of Dharmendra and brother of Sunny Deol, Bobby, was the blue-eyed boy in the 1990s.
Deol says he never cared much about competition with his colleagues in the industry and admits losing out on work primarily because of his approach. "Everybody was going to the producers' offices to get work, which could have been mine. I did not realize that and slowly started losing," he said. Bobby Deol stayed away from the silver screen for about four years.
Bobby Deol, who will be seen in Salman Khan-fronted "Race 3", says he hopes the action thriller will lead to better opportunities. He has also been signed on for "Housefull 4", besides another unnamed project with Salman. "For someone who is starving for work, what better can happen in his life than a big franchise film," the actor added.
Deol said, "Now, the negativity will not take away my desire to work. Salman is a big star and still, he has a fire, Anil (Kapoor) has tremendous energy. My dad is 82 years old and he wants to work every day of his life, even my brother." Directed by Remo D'Souza, "Race 3" is set to release on June 15.
