When asked about how life has been after his acclaimed acting debut, the talented actor was quoted saying that after the completion of the film, he was unsure about what he should do next. However, his father advised him to take a break from acting. Hence he was busy concentrating on his studies in the 11th and 12th standard and enjoying school life with his friends.
Currently, He Is Busy With Theatre
However, the actor is currently involved in theatre work. When asked about how he returned to acting, Darsheel quipped that once he entered college after completing school, he was drawn into amateur theatre. He found himself doing a number of street plays and finally realised that once an actor, always an actor. When asked about when he plans his next Bollywood film, the actor is quick to reply that he is not interested in a typical debut where he sings and dances. He wants to wait for something that is as good as Taare Zameen Par. Plus the fact that he is just 19 doesn’t make him want to rush into things.
