Many people consider Deol’s 1997 role in Rajiv Rai’s suspense film Gupt: The Hidden Truth to be his breakthrough performance. Deol was cast with Manisha Koirala, Kajol, Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, and Raj Babbar in the part of Sahil, a young man who was wrongfully imprisoned after being convicted of killing his stepfather over an engagement proposal.

He makes his getaway and finds the actual murderer. Gupt: The Hidden Truth was a huge financial success and received great praise for both its plot and soundtrack. Deol made her Bollywood debut with Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya the same year as Aishwarya Rai did. It did not perform well at the box office, even with high hopes.

In 2000, Deol costarred with Rani Mukerji in the action drama Badal, which Raj Kanwar directed. The movie takes place in 1984, during a time when Delhi and Punjab were experiencing unrest. Deol portrays Badal, a young boy who grows up to become a feared terrorist because of his resentment and hatred towards the authorities for wrongfully depriving him of his family and friends.

Badal witnesses the massacre of his family and the villagers by the dishonest Police Inspector Jai Singh Rana (Ashutosh Rana). The Devil’s Own (1997), starring Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt, served as the inspiration for the movie. Badal turned out to be a commercial success. He then appeared in Hum To Mohabbat Karega (2000) with Karisma Kapoor and reteamed with Rani Mukerji in Bichhoo (2000), which was a shameless ripoff of Luc Besson’s 1994 picture Leon, starring Jean Reno and Natalie Portman.

Later in 2002, Deol’s portrayal of a dapper, well-to-do shipping magnate in Humraaz, Abbas-Mustan’s romantic thriller, earned him a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Drama. Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 classic Dial M For Murder (which was adapted in 1998 as A Perfect Murder), the film stars Deol alongside Ameesha Patel and Akshaye Khanna in a romantic triangle.

Chitra Mahesh of The Hindu wrote, “Deol spends the entire first half looking moony eyed and spaced out, but overcomes the stupor towards the end where he actually gives a good performance.” Chitra Mahesh’s critique of the movie was positive. David Dhawan’s Chor Machaaye Shor, in which Deol costarred with Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Bipasha Basu, and Om Puri, was Deol’s last movie of 2002. He portrayed Shyam, a small-time criminal who gains possession of millions of dollars’ worth of diamonds.

Reviews of Deol’s performance were not entirely favourable. Raja Sen of Rediff.com, for example, gave high marks to many of his sequences, saying, “Bobby gets a considerably meaty role, and there are a couple of moments when he genuinely works the audience.” However, he characterises Bobby as “sensitive to an annoying hilt.” Brief cameos in Om Shanti Om and Nanhe Jaisalmer as himself came after this movie.

During the actors discussion on Film Companion, Bobby shared that during the initial days of the production, he used to feel “disgusted” about performing the role.

Bobby’s assertion was corroborated by other performers present at the discussion. “He was very scary (in the film),” said Vikrant Massey, who costarred with him in Shanker Raman’s romantic thriller Love Hostel last year. At the same time, he was killing twenty people in a single day. Later, we had dinner together and talked about farming. I exclaimed, “Oh my god!”

One of the most talked-about sequences in Animal is Bobby Deol’s marital rape scene with Mansi Taxak, who plays Abrar’s third wife. The scene is one of many contentious situations in the movie.

Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan grew up in the 90s and continued to live in a world of gossip and rivalry into the 2000s. She experienced fights, fights with cats, abuse, hurls, calling out, humiliation, and even slaps during her episodes. A very detailed gossip column about Bebo and her conflicts could exist, but it was primarily made public because the actress didn’t give them any thought.

On the set of their movie Ajnabee, Tanya Deol, Bobby Deol’s wife, is said to have smacked the Laal Singh Chaddha actress. Nevertheless, because none of the parties ever acknowledged it, the slap element might have been exaggerated. But both sides talked about the conflict.

the primary cause of the altercation. It was Bipasha Basu, that’s for sure. Bips was a newbie to the industry, having only recently entered it. Tanya Deol made the decision to assist her as she was an outsider who might get lost in their world. She assisted Bipasha in getting ready for Ajnabee. Babita, the mother of Kareena Kapoor, was not amused by this and educated Tanya about it.

The Deol wife returned it to Babita, unable to comprehend why she had lost her temper. Even Kareena, who had just been in the profession for a year, did not enjoy Tanya’s assistance to Bipasha Basu. No one can verify if the slap incident actually occurred. But Bebo later acknowledged in an interview that he didn’t like Tanya.
