We caught up with actor Bobby Deol recently and the 51-year-old had no qualms about talking about facing failures and learning from them only to emerge wiser, and eventually be on the path-that of acting and working in the movies. When quizzed how did he survive the lull phase in his career, Bobby stated matter-of-factly that he had absolutely nothing, no other choice or an alternative career to fall back on. "I had no other alternative. I had nothing. All I wanted to do in my life was acting. I never wanted to do any other business or become a businessman." says Bobby.
He further adds. "Till this day, I don't want to be a businessman. That's how we the Deols are, the whole family, none of us is a good businessman. We are actors. I have two legends at home my dad (Dharmendra) and my brother (Sunny Deol). So I just need to work everyday. Struggle is a part of our lives and all actors go through struggles."

"Something snapped in me when my kids started questioning why don't I go to work. I think I had gone off the track and I would also think that I was not lucky enough.I was in the right direction initially but I lost my track and I would always be dependent on something that would pacify me, help me calm down. I think pain, failure and misery can teach you much more than success and fame. In the end, I think one should not give up at all, no matter what!" stresses Deol.
