The Mary Kom actor Darshan Kumaar who is also part of the web series Aashram never knew that it was going to be huge someday. Post the release of Aashram's third season, the actor talked about the series and how it has helped in his career growth. He also shared his experience of working with multiple National Award-winning filmmaker Prakash Jha.
Darshan said, “I have been working to find visibility as an actor for the longest period of time. You see, my problem or what I used to wonder why is, people would come to me and say ‘Darshan you are a good actor’, but no one would give me a big project. So I would wonder if I am good as an actor, why can’t I get a good project? I didn’t give up though. When Prakash Ji offered me Aashram, I was more than excited to be part of that world.”
When asked about the lessons he learned from the legendary director, Darshan said, “The fact that he lives with a simple attitude, ‘kaam karo, aage barho’. Every day on set during shooting, he is working with the excitement as if it is his first project and there is no sense of feeling complacent about the fact that the previous season was so successful. Even now when we were doing a promotional activity, in between he is working on his next project.”
“He believes in working continuously instead of over analysing his success. I am trying to follow the same philosophy because as an actor, the success of a film is not in my hands but only my performance is,” the actor signed off.
