Having delivered successful back-to-back projects, actor Darshan Kumaar feels that making choices has definitely become more difficult for him.

“When the audience gives you so much love for your character, the responsibilities increase significantly because they look forward to what I’m going to do next. So the pressure to deliver has definitely increased! And for that, the challenge is to choose a good subject and then give it my 200%,” the actor tells during his visit to Lucknow.

Kumaar says that after selection, only delivering his best is in his hand. “I can’t control the success of a film or a series. That is teamwork and many people are involved in it. So what I can do for my part is that I do my best. The public spends their money and precious time on us, so it’s my responsibility to perform as well as possible for them.”

The actor is in no hurry. “By the grace of God I have had good offers. After Maria Komo there was a long list of offers from a man of descent and a good friend, after that NH10 a long list of villains and now starring ki line lag gai hai! I feel blessed, but I’m in no rush,” he says.

He now chooses good offers. “There were a few A-lister directors who wanted to work with me but couldn’t because the cinema is opening the weekend game, so after The Kashmir Files clocked 350 crore they gave me their scripts. Satishji (Kaushik) is also one of them who wanted to work with me and now we do Kaagaz 2 together, to be shot in Lucknow.”

So far he has a good balance between antagonist and protagonist, so is there a change in the plan now? “I only believe in scripts and that’s a hero to me! Thanks to our audience, the barrier of this hero, villain, comedian or character artist has been broken. They just see you as a performer and what do you do in the script.”

When choosing his roles, he says, “My attempt is just to show a new side of me that I’ve tried. Also, whatever I do, I believe my character is well placed. I condemn my character not and do it with the conviction that what he is doing is absolutely right, then it could be a murder or something!”

Kumaar’s next movie release is dhokha with R Madhvan, Aparshakti Khurana and Khushali Kumar. “Next season of the family man happens and then hopefully Ashram 4 will happen. Movies have become T20 (cricket) match while web series are like Test match where you get a chance to settle in, build an inning and play a long one! So I’m going to balance between films and OTT series.”
