There’s no denying the fact that Deols have entertained the industry for decades, and even today; they continue to do so. From Dharmendra starting everything and making a name for himself right from scratch to his kids, Sunny Deol, Esha Deol Takhtani, and Bobby Deol, taking the name of their family to a whole new level, they’ve clearly given so much to the Hindi film industry. Not only this, even the third generation of Deols is set to take the legacy of their fathers and forefathers to the next level.
The Deols of the film industry continue to rise
However, it was never an easy task for the Deols to make a place for themselves when the industry was dominated by Kapoors, Khans, Chopras, Khannas, and many more. Back in 1960 Dharmendra made his acting debut in the Hindi film industry with the film, Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere and decades later in 2023, his son, Sunny Deol, announced the sequel, Gadar 2, of his iconic film, Gadar. Well, it clearly speaks volumes about the longevity of the Deol clan that continues to rule Bollywood,

and it would be a sin not to speak about Bobby Deol’s remarkable comeback in the industry with his critically-acclaimed web series, Aashram. The actor known for his romantic looks did a tremendous job in portraying the evil character of ‘Baba Nirala’ in Prakash Jha’s series, which is all set for the release of its fourth season (finale) in 2023. So it is quite clear that the Deols are in no mood to bid farewell to the big screen as they’ve still so much to offer to the audience.
The burden of Dharmendra’s legacy on the shoulders of his kids, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Esha Deol Takhtani
However, it wasn’t a cakewalk for Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Abhay Deol, Esha Deol Takhtani to get out of the shadow of Dharmendra, who is still regarded as one of the greatest actors of all time. Such was his aura that even legendary actor, Dilip Kumar had also confessed during an award function that he had never seen a person more handsome than Dharmendra. Apart from his looks and dramatic voice, it was his unique acting style that set a benchmark so high that even today, there are hardly any actors, who can replicate such charisma and presence that he has on the big screen.
When a young Bobby Deol made an adorable cameo in his father, Dharmendra’s documentary
When the He-Man of Hindi cinema, Dharmendra was at the peak of his career, a documentary was made on his life, daily routine, and stardom. The makers tried to capture the essence of being Dharmendra and what it felt like to be one of the biggest stars in the country for the viewers. From showing his house, morning routine, and how he dressed up, the documentary was a treat for Dharamendra’s massive fanbase across the nation. There was also a small cameo of his younger son, Bobby Deol, in it, and recently, we stumbled upon that portion of the documentary.
In the video, Dharmendra could be seen spending some time with his younger son, Bobby Deol, in the early hours of his day. While in the background, we could see lush green trees and plants, a blue sky and a young Bobby, who looked super-cute in pink-hued sleepwear. The doting father was having something while he was busy in a conversation with his son while sitting on a chair in his bungalow’s garden. Later in the video, Dharmendra could be seen getting ready for his shooting and leaving the house in a car.

The priceless video takes us back to the golden days when Dharmendra was breaking records with his every film. However, even today, at the age of 87, he continues to break headlines with his appearances in his family’s social media posts. For instance, on January 14, 2023, Bobby Deol took to his Instagram handle and posted a picture with his father, Dharmendra and his son, Aryaman Deol and his brother, Sunny Deol’s sons, Karan Deol and Rajveer Deol. The Deols could be seen celebrating Lohri, and that one photo was enough to warm the hearts of a billion people. Along with the picture, Bobby had penned:
