Buzz is that Bobby Deol is contemplating taking up a television show offer. The actor, who was last seen in films like ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2′ (2013) and ‘Players’ (2012), has been offered a finite episode detective series by a Hindi entertainment channel. A source associated with the project says, “The makers are keen to have Bollywood actors in the cast since B-Town debutants on TV attract attention. After the Anil Kapoor show, ’24’, and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Yudh’, channels are keen to rope in film folk for finite episode shows.” Sources say that the makers are currently in talks with Bobby for the project. Adds the source, “He has apparently given a nod to the project and if all goes well, things will be finalised soon. They intend to make an announcement soon.” The makers feel that the show will be an ideal launchpad for Bobby’s television debut. “It will be a slick detective series; he will do well in the show since the character suits him,” says the source. Bobby Deol remained unavailable for comment.
