The Deol family, Dharmendra and his two sons Sunny and Bobby Deol had vowed to give all their time to the marketing and promotion of their family film Yamla Pagla Deewana. Alas, the Deols proposed. But Anees Bazmee disposed.
Earlier this week, Dharmendra and Sunny Deol had to go without Bobby for a promotional tour to Nagpur. Bobby was dragged away to Bangkok for the shooting of Bazmee's Thank You, as the shooting of the film couldn't be put off.
Says a source, "Anees' schedule for Thank You had already been disrupted twice. Once because of Bobby's father-in-law's death, they had to abruptly end a schedule in Canada. Then during another schedule Sonam Kapoor fell ill. There was no way Anees could postpone the schedule any more. He has to complete another schedule of his other film Ready with Salman Khan in March."
Emotional to the core, Dharmendra and Sunny Deol are apparently hurt by Bobby's absence from what is being seen as a family affair.
Yamla Pagla Deewana director Samir Karnik confirms, "Yes Bobby couldn't be here for the promotion of this week. Dharamji and Sunny had to go to Nagpur without him. Bobby had to be in Bangkok for Thank You. Parivar kuch adhura lag raha tha. But never mind. Bobby has other commitments."
Hope the Deols would also come around to feeling the same way.
2010 was not an easy year for Bobby Deol. And it looks like 2011 too will be specially taxing, what with the family film Yamla Pagla Deewana's promotions clashing with the schedules of Anees Bazmee's Thank You.
