Darshan Pandya: It Took Me Television To Get Parmanu As I Don’t Have Relatives in Bollywood

Lastly, the handsome and hardworking actor Darshan Pandya made the foray on the silver screen with John Abraham’s hit film Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran.

The actor donned the character of a Pakistani undercover agent, who aims to spoil all the plans of India to carry out its second nuclear examinations, which happened in Pokhran.

Darshan Pandya stated, “It has taken me 10 years to get a film, [since] I don’t have any relatives in Bollywood. I wanted to do a film from the first day [when I decided to become an actor], but it didn’t happen. It took me television and stage shows to get Parmanu.”

He added up that he hasn’t received any opportunity to work in a movie. Darshan has also showcased his talent in the TV show like Aapki Antra and Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar.

“Chhote roles toh aate rehte the, lekin har cheez materialize nahi hoti hai (I was often offered small parts but not everything that comes you way gets materialise). There would be some reasons every time for things to not happen,” a talented small screen star said.

He also said that he got an offer for Qaidi Band, but he said no to the offer. He kept on saying, “There was a good role, but I couldn’t do it, though I don’t regret that. I would regret earlier ‘yeh nahi hua, yeh character nahi mila’ and that was there because I used to plan a lot, that I would do this and that. I soon realised that nothing happens according to how you plan it. I understood that I should not waste my time in planning, and go with the flow. I stopped regretting.”

In reality, he has done engineering, and step by step, he turned his face in the direction of acting.

But, his initial work is bound to shock you. “Though I am an engineer, I did the job of a salesman, doing theatre side-by-side. I did the job for one and a half year, then left it to do plays, and that’s how my professional career began,” he also told.
