“Why is the concept of consent so unfamiliar?”
Bobby Deol celebrated his 55th birthday on January 27, 2024, surrounded by a magnificent cake and loving fans who wanted to wish their hero a happy birthday.
However, Bobby got more than he bargained for as he posed for a photograph with a fan and was caught off-guard as she planted a kiss on his cheek.
The video shows the excited woman standing next to Bobby and asking for a selfie.
As Bobby prepares to take a photograph, the fan reaches up and kisses him on the cheek leaving him rattled as he swiftly hands the phone back and moves away.
After the video went viral on social media, angry fans came forward to express anger towards the woman and questioned why there was no concept of consent.
One fan wrote: “Now imagine that this was a male fan with a female star. Imagine what would have happened then.”
Another said: “Why is the concept of consent so unfamiliar?”
A third commented: “This is why actors and actresses don’t like taking photographs so close.”
One comment read: “She should be jailed.”
The fan was identified as Neha Kanabar.
A separate video shows an extravagant five-tiered cake, laden with photographs of the actor with the message: “Happy Birthday Lord Bobby Deol.”
Bobby is seen walking towards the cake in a bright blue outfit as he puts his hands together and gives a thumbs-up in appreciation for his fans and the cake.
