Darshan Kumar, who was seen in MARY KOM & now in NH10, opened up on his career, his life & much more.
Darshan has grown into a Bollywood actor from theatre. When asked how acting happened to him, he said, “I had a dream to become an actor since childhood. I started enjoying acting after I joined theatre. I love doing theatre. Because after doing a great show, the response you get is amazing. From that time, I knew that if you have talent then nobody can stop you.”

Speaking about his future plans as an actor, Darshan said, “I have a big dream to become a star. I want to do lead roles. I have signed 2 films, that I will play a lead in.”
On being asked if he would be playing a different character from MARY KOM & NH10, he replied with an affirmative. He said, “You will see Darshan in a different avatar.”
Darshan entered the Bollywood industry after working in theatre for a long time. On that, he said, “It’s not easy to get lead roles, but I have an asset- that’s my talent. So I was sharpening that- so that when I get a chance, I can hit that. So in that way- I did not stop, & I will work hard more.”
Darshan Kumaar does not want to stick to a genre but he wants to explore the most. “In theatre also I have done different kinds of characters- comedy, romance. I want to explore all kinds of genres. I want to do commercial films where I can dance/ perform in different ways.”
“I’m learning all kinds of dances (modern dances, salsa, contemporary & ballet) since 4-5 years. I want to do comedy films because people, including Naseeruddin (Shah) sir have liked my work. So I want to do all kinds of genre. I’m an actor. I’m like water- you put me in any kind of thing & I’ll shape up like that,” he said.
Speaking about his schedule, “I go to boxing classes in the morning, then gym & dance. I try to watch a film everyday, because it gives me a different kind of kick when I see a good performance. When you see a good performance, you get some kind of energy inside you & you try to push yourself & you work hard. So that’s what I try to do.”
On being asked if he has a dream character, Darshan said, “I’d love to play the character of BIRDMAN, because it was slightly based on theatre also. & the way they shot it- that’s beautiful. & I got to know that they were shooting one scene in a day, because they were rehearsing, & that’s the beauty- it’s like you’re doing theatre. So I want to play that kind of difficult roles.”
NH10 starring Anushka Sharma, Neil Bhoopalam & Darshan Kumaar has released today.
