“When you pity yourself, you will start cursing the world around you. That is what happened with me for two-three years. I started pitying myself and thought that no one wants to work with me so I relied on alcohol. I started numbing myself and then one day I realised where I was wrong when I saw it in my kids’ eyes that our father stays home all day long.” He added, “I saw the same emotion in my mother and wife’s eyes too, so something in me changed and I realized that if I want to move forward, I cannot wait for someone else to do it, I will have to walk myself. That is when I started working on myself and I have been so busy in the last two-three years.” He told Bollywood Hungama.

Class of 83 is a period police drama produced by Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies Entertainment for Netflix. The film is slated for release on Friday. Bobby will appear in another streaming project — MX Player’s Ashram — in the week after that
