Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Bobby Deol said that it took him some time to accept the fact that he would have to settle for roles lesser than the lead.

“I used to be a big star once upon a time but things didn’t work out. My market value went down. I went through a phase where I couldn’t understand why this happened and I started giving up,” Bobby told IANS.
