After giving the industry its present teenage heartthrob, Shahid Kapoor, celebrity choreographer Shiamak Davar can take credit for giving Bollywood a heartthrob of a different kind. This latest heartthrob is all of eight years and tugs at the emotional chords of even the stone/cold hearted.

Well, we are talking about Darsheel Safary, the Gujarati Jain boy, whose marvelous histrionics are to be seen to be believed in Aamir Khan's directorial debut venture, TAARE ZAMEEN PAR. He plays the dyslexic child to perfection, and matches the actor perfectionist Aamir Khan, a feat which is almost impossible to achieve!

Returning to our headline, the boy wonder is another discovery (like his predecessor Shahid Kapoor), from Shiamak Davar's dance troupe. Here's hoping that Shiamak will continue to nurture new talents and keep on giving us many more Shahids and Darsheels.
