Actor Darshan Kumar, who played Priyanka Chopra’s husband in “Mary Kom”, feels lucky to be sharing screen space with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in an upcoming biopic on Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh.
Based on the story of Sarabjit, who was convicted of terrorism by the Pakistani court, the film will be directed by Omung Kumar.
“I feel lucky, blessed to be working with Aishwarya. I am excited as well as nervous about working with her. She is a talented actress. It’s a big film and a great opportunity for me as an actor,” Darshan told PTI.
The biopic has Aishwarya playing the role of Dalbir Kaur, while Randeep Hooda plays her brother and Sarabjit, the protagonist.
Darshan will be portraying the role of Khalid Pervaiz, a Pakistani lawyer who fights for Sarabjit’s justice.
“I have to learn his body language, adapt how he talks and walks. I will have to lose some weight. We plan to meet the lawyer,” said Darshan, who was also seen in “NH10”.
This is Darshan’s second film with Omung. “We share a great equation. We know each other very well. He is a very caring person,” he added.
Darshan will start shooting for “Sarabjit” next month.
