He told in his interview, ‘I was bullied by my seniors in school. Even my watchman has a perception about actors. What’s worse is that you don’t even know that the world is looking at you from different angles. Even your own family sees you differently to some extent. Let me tell you the story of the day I went to school after Taare Zameen Par released and I was surrounded. My tie was pulled, I had to take half a day to save myself. Today, however, I understand that an actor has to be prepared for such things.
In the year 2007, there was also a rumor that his father Mitesh Safari had demanded Rs 2 crore from director Ajay Monga for Darsheel’s acting in ‘Taare Zameen Par’. Darsheel also cleared these rumours. Darsheel told that he has a good bonding with Monga and if there was any truth in these rumours, he would have definitely known about it. He said- If Papa had asked for it, I would have come to know till today.
When Darsheel was asked about their relationship, he told that he is not comfortable in answering this question. He said- If I say yes, then you will also ask the name of that girl. On the work front, he has wrapped up shooting for a Gujarati film, starring Ratna Pathak and Mansi Parekh.
