Darsheel is a second year BMM student from HR College, Dna reported quoting him, “The director approached me for the play and I was carried away by the script when I heard it. I have been wanting to do a full-fledged play for a long time and this seemed perfect,” says the teenager. Darsheel plays an aspiring cricketer, Rikhav, with a lot of issues. “Although I have been doing amateur theatre for a long time, with this play, I’m getting to learn a lot. I’m discovering how I can make this brash character likeable to the audience,”
Talking about his long break he said,“I’m at an age where I can experiment. My dad told me to gain as much knowledge as I can before I get back to the big screen, Movies will happen when they have to. I’m waiting to grow up some more and for the right script to come along.”
Now waiting to see where his career choices take him and if the audience will be as receptive as they were with the Ishaan they fell for on screen ten years ago.
