Bobby Deol, who is gearing up for the release of Race 3, which hits screens on June 15, said that he's here because "people love" him and want to see him, reports news agency IANS. Speaking at the press conference for the 19th IIFA Awards, Bobby Deol said: "I am here because people love me and wish to see me." At the event Bobby Deol made it clear that it is the support of his fans and not the awards which matters to him the most. He cited his father Dharmendra's example, who never won a Best Actor award in his career spanning 58 years. "I consider my father (Dharmendra) as one of the most iconic and talented actors of our country, who has never been given a best actor award," IANS quoted him as saying. "My father received lot of love and appreciation from his fans and that is happening with my fans as well. So it does not matter," he added.

Bobby Deol will also perform at the award show in Bangkok. The actor will perform on stage after seven years. Is he jittery about his upcoming performance? The Soldier actor said: "No, not really. I do not feel nervous. I have nothing to lose, I lost out on a few years of not working and performing, so now I just want to do it."

In interviews during the promotion of Race 3, Bobby Deol has always credited his co-star Salman Khan for reviving his career. Bobby Deol opened up about his low phase and shared how Salman helped him overcome it, in a recent interview with NDTV. "I met Salman one year ago, and he told me everyone has low and high phases. He said when he had a bad period he climbed on to my brother's back and Sanjay Dutt's back. That's when I told him, 'let me climb on to your back for support," Bobby Deol said in the interview. Bobby Deol underwent a massive physical transformation for his role in the latest installment in the Race franchise and mentioned that Salman Khan motivated him to work on his physique. Salman Khan had introduced Bobby Deol as the "main man" while releasing the Race 3 poster.
