As Tarun Mansukhani's Dostana releases this week. Everyone is talking about the JoBhi (John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan) 'bro'mance, people seem to have forgotten that another hottie, Bobby Deol is also part of the film. Bobby plays the part of a fashion magazine editor in the film. Says director Tarun, "I was very clear about Bobby's character (Abhimanyu Singh) being a leader who knows what he wants from his life."
While JoBhi are dressed in casual chic clothes, Bobby is dressed in suits for the most part. Tarun says, "Bobby is a clothes horse. It's tough making Bobby look bad! There were a couple of scenes where we needed to make him dress badly but no matter what we gave him, he looked great in everything including a shirt off the streets. Bobby's body language can never be tapori. Even in torn leather jeans, he looks superb and carries it off as the style of the month."
Tarun is all praise for Bobby, "He's one of the easiest actors to work with. He has just three questions per scene but once he's clear about his answers he's putty in your hands." The director says that when he was writing Abhi-manyu's role, he wanted only Deol Jr for the part. "Bobby is Hindi film royalty, blue-blooded, stunningly good-looking with a persona that makes heads turn when he walks into a room. And yet Bobby can play the most suave gentleman with an amazing comic timing. Bobby is James Bond with a comic flair!"
