Darsheel Safary, who captured many hearts with his portrayal of Ishaan Awasthi in 2007’s Taare Zameen Par, is ready to return to the big screen after a 10-year break. Safary was featured in a few internet videos earlier this year, but he will return to the big screen as an adult. He has finished filming the film, according to our sources.
“I told my father that I wanted to enjoy college. Because my school years flew by. I’ve been shooting since I was in fourth grade. Not that I didn’t love shooting, but I was impatient with college. “I desired to experience college life,” the 25-year-old actor explains why he took a hiatus. The actor kept himself occupied by doing college plays, but he says that he “missed the camera like there was no tomorrow.” “I was missing shooting every single day of my life,” he says.
Safary’s most recent major appearance was on a celebrity dancing reality programme, and he was also seen in Midnight’s Children (2012). He will next be featured in the suspense thriller Tibba, directed by newbie Gaurav Khati, with stars Adah Sharma and Sonali Kulkarni. He has also filmed for another film, Mukt, in which he plays a man suffering from mental illness.
While he began his career with superstar Aamir Khan and could have approached him for a project, Safary refused to take the “shortcut.” “I’d be embarrassed” (to ask him for work). I believe that you should earn what you work for. Those, I believe, are shortcuts. I don’t want to take a lengthy cut, but rather a learning cut. “I don’t think I need to force,” he explains.
Interestingly, both his debut and forthcoming films deal with mental health concerns. “I want to do things that are in keeping with Taare Zameen Par, highlighting vital parts and feelings.” I don’t want to shatter any illusions. This is what I’ve accomplished, and I’m proud of it. (Now) Allow it to stay for as long as it wishes. The goal is to experiment with new things. The majority of films for males my age are about college and students. “This is completely out of the box,” Safary concludes.
