Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards, one of the prestigious Indian cinema awards held in Mumbai on Saturday, February 20, 2021. Took the world by storm this season, when Bobby Deol from the OTT space walked home with the best actor in a web series award. Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Kiara Advani and Sushmita Sen were amongst many other proud recipients of this red-carpet celebration that day.

Filmmaker Prakash Jha’s web series – MX Original Series ‘Aashram’ saw major success for both Part 1 and Chapter 2: The Dark Side with Bobby in the lead role as the self-proclaimed Godman ‘Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala’.

This web series, supposedly, is one of the most well-timed and candid Indian crime dramas ever created. In true Prakash Jha style, the web drama is a vivid portrayal of how the Godman in India takes advantage of their devotees to propagate their ulterior agendas. Undoubtedly, there is a lot of mystery, thrill, and emotion attached to this series for its viewers.

After receiving a raving response from the viewers, ‘Aashram’, now critically acclaimed, has won two iconic awards this season, bagging the Landmark OTT Show at the Indian Television Academy Awards 2021 and the Best Actor – Web Series awards at the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival 2021 for its lead star Bobby Deol.

Vijay Singh Deol or as we know Bobby Deol is the second scion of Dharmendra, the handsome hunk of Bollywood from yesteryears. With his brief appearance as a child artist in 1977 Dharmendra starrer, ‘Dharamveer’, Bobby made his debut as a lead star in the commercial hit ‘Barsat’ in 1995. Although he has had a string of hits to his credit, he never got what he truly deserved. I presume Bobby is the most underrated actor in Bollywood. After his comeback in 2017, this well-deserved award should prove a boon to his career graph. From those of us who have enjoyed watching this handsome star kid and his charismatic performances, here comes ‘all the best’ for his future. Kudos to the hard work and perseverance. Hope to see many more of such iconic works.

Bobby George is a published writer and lives in NainiTal, a little hill station in northern India. ‘ONE within…’ the debut novel by the author is a romantic suspense. The title garnered raving reviews for its descriptive yet crisp narration and visual portrayal of the heart-wrenching emotions. As an author, he likes to explore the infinite realm of fictional writing, not confining him to any genre in particular. He is an avid reader with an inherent penchant for writing. His almost three decades’ long association with boarding schools, in the hills, has given his writing a finesse. Multi-lingual by his sheer love for languages, he can speak five regional languages. He now devotes more of his time to pursue his passion and to satiate his creative appetite. He loves travelling, exploring unknown places, enjoys trekking and long drives in the hills. All of that aptly reflects in his work. As a bibliophile, he believes ‘Reading is the first step towards writing.’ “I do not write for a living or as a pass time. Neither do I write to be popular. I write for the sheer love of expression. I marvel at the linguistic ability in humans to express what they see, touch, experience and perceive. It fascinates me when they assimilate it all and put it down in words to convey it to another human. In a million different ways. There is an infinite possibility of this ability to be unique, with the same sights, thoughts, feelings, and the same experience. It is overwhelming when people can relate to my thoughts in words. And how we become one at that particular moment. It is a craft that I keep honing, and I would all my life.” Bobby George He is an active blogger.
