He was only 10 years old at that time.In 1995, Bobby made his debut in the film Barsaat. His next release Gupt came nearly two years later in 1997. This murder mystery proved to be a huge hit and pushed Bobby 's stock skywards.In 1997, his film Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya which marked the debut of Miss World Aishwarya Rai, got an even warmer welcome. Eventually, this over-hyped love story turned out to be a complete washout.In 1998, Bobby's thrilling hit in the form of Abbas-Mastan's whodunit, Soldier, was released. Once again, Bobby deserved the credit for its success, since he was cast opposite rank newcomer, Preity Zinta, and was aided by a totally non-starry cast.In 2000, he enjoyed decent success with the films Badal and Bichhoo.However Ajnabee (2001) did reasonably well at the box-office and Humraaz (2002)was a huge hit. In Apne, Bobby appeared with his father Dharmendra and brother Sunny Deol together for the first time.Apart from Apne all other films that released in 2007 were huge flops such as Naqaab: Disguised Intentions, Shakalaka Boom Boom and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom were huge flops.

Actor Bobby Deol and actress of Indian origin Monica Dogra will be seen together in upcoming film ‘Changez’. Vivek Singh Chauhan directed  ‘Changez’ happens to be a comeback film for both the actors. Monica Dogra, who made her acting debut in the Bollywood film ‘Dhobi Ghat’, is playing an Indian girl in this dark action thriller.

The film goes on floor in January 2016 and the first schedule of the film is to be shot in New Delhi. The film will feature prominent locations of the capital in its beautiful chill days.

Commenting further Monica says, ” I’m starting the new year with shooting for Changez! My role is one that is very exciting and feminist in it’s approach- but in a way you would least expect. For now, all I can say is that she’s a bit of a badass. As far as working with Bobby Deol goes- he’s my type of guy.  He is humble, kind, crazy handsome, and truly an artist out to perfect his craft. I feel very lucky to start the year on such a note”.

Monica’s role would be an interesting watch as we would get to see, for the first time the Indie queen starring along side mainstream Bollywood hero Bobby Deol who has given many hits to his credit.

Taran Adarsh of said after viewing the film, "Both Bobby and Upen get fabulous roles and the two actors make the most of it. Bobby is one of the most under-rated actors around. His work has been consistent all through, but one tends to overlook this talented actor's abilities all the while. Watch him go negative in Shakalaka Boom Boom and you'd agree that he's amongst the best in the business today. His outburst in the end is remarkable.

Deol's second film of 2007 was Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, which saw him play the character of Steve/Satvinder Singh opposite Abhishek Bachchan (who played a gypsy in London), Preity Zinta, and Lara Dutta. Directed by Shaad Ali, the film was produced by Aditya Chopra and Yash Chopra under the Yash Raj Films banner.

The film was a family affair, featuring Bobby Deol alongside his father Dharmendra, a disgraced retired boxer who trains Bobby and his brother (Sunny Deol) to become champion boxers but in doing so creates a rift within the family. Apne was a major commercial success, particularly in northern India and overseas, especially in the UK, where it made £579,457 on the opening weekend, entering into the UK.

Deol next starred in the suspense thriller Naqaab, another Abbas-Mustan film which features him alongside Akshaye Khanna and Urvashi Sharma as another millionaire caught in a love triangle. Deol received a mixed reception for his performance. For instance, Raja Sen of praised several of his scenes, remarking, "Bobby gets a considerably meaty role, and there are a couple of moments when he genuinely works the audience", but describes his character as "sensitive to an annoying hilt This film was followed by brief special appearances as himself in Om Shanti Om and Nanhe Jaisalmer.

In 2008, Deol starred opposite Priyanka Chopra, Danny Denzongpa and Irrfan Khan in the crime drama Chamku, playing the lead character and titlesake of Chamku, a man raised by Baba (Denzongpa), a Naxal leader based in the southern interiors of Bihar, after his family was brutally murdered.

Kabeer Kaushik, the director of the film had originally approached Deol to play the lead role in his debut film, Sehar, but despite liking the script, Deol turned it down because at the time he was not prepared to work with a debutant director.
