After giving phenomenal performances in national award winning movie ‘Mary Kom’ and the critically acclaimed movie NH-10, Darshan Kumar is soon going to be seen in Omung Kumar’s much talked about upcoming biopic ‘Sarbjit’. The talented actor who has showcased his exceptional acting skills in his previous movies will be seen in a very distinctive and important role in ‘Sarbjit’. He will be portraying the role of Khalid Pervaiz, a Pakistani lawyer who left no stone unturned to get justice for Sarbjit.
Khalid Pervaiz was more than a friend and a brother to Sarbjit and was a major support for his sister Dalbir Kaur’s fight to free him from the Pakistani jail. It is known that Darshan’s role in the movie would be the most challenging one he has done so far and it would also be the first time that the actor would be sharing screen space with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who is playing the role of Sarbjit’s sister, Dalbir Kaur and Randeep Hooda who’s Playing Sarbjit.
Confirming the news of signing Darshan Kumar for the role of Sarabjit’s lawyer, Director Omung Kumar says, “Darshan Kumar is a brilliant actor who gave an outstanding performance in my previous movie Mary Kom. When I started working on my second biopic ‘Sarbjit’, I was certain that I need an exceptionally good actor who would do full justice to this particular role. I called Darshan for a narration and after hearing it; he instantly said yes and added that he would do anything for me given the respect he has for me. This really touched my heart.”
The movie will take the audiences through the untold story of the Indian slain prisoner Sarbjit who was imprisoned in Pakistan, mistaken for an Indian spy. ‘Sarbjit’ is slated to go on floors soon and is expected to release in the May 2016.
