Darshan Kumar could have been a part of a number of acclaimed and difficult tasks like Mary Kom, NH10, Sarbjit, and The Family Man collection, however the actor says his newest movie The Kashmir Files has given him the hardest position of his profession. Darshan, who performs a conflicted Kashmiri youth looking for out the reality behind his mother and father and brother’s deaths in Vivek Agnihotri’s directorial, says he virtually went into melancholy whereas capturing for the movie.

The Kashmir Files is a narrative primarily based on video interviews of the primary technology victims of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990. The movie additionally stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, and Puneet Issar.

“I watched plenty of movies that have been out there within the public area to get into the pores and skin of my character, Krishna Pandit,” Darshan tells News18. “I had to live each and every incident that happened with Krishna Pandit and his family. It was very painful. I almost slipped into depression. I was always low. I tried to be in the character all the time even when I was at the hotel and resting. I have not had proper sleep any night while I was shooting for this movie. I had to do meditation for three weeks after finishing the film because I wanted to come out of that. So, it took a toll on me. But I think all of it has now paid off with the audience giving standing ovations to the film nationwide,” Darshan provides.

Darshan recollects how he was left shaken after Vivek Agnihotri narrated the script of The Kashmir Files to him. “I keep in mind I received a name from casting director Taran Bajaj who stated Vivek sir may be very to forged you in his movie. Then I met Pallavi ma’am at her workplace and she or he confirmed me the movies of actual victims. They had traveled everywhere in the world and documented the first-hand accounts of the victims whose moms received raped or relations have been killed brutally. It shook me inside out. I couldn’t utter a single phrase after watching these movies.”

He continues, “Later, they gave me the script and while reading it, I could feel the same pain that I saw in those videos because Vivek sir depicted all those incidents so incredibly in the screenplay that I was spellbound. Whatever we are showing in the film, it’s all in the public domain and I feel so guilty not knowing about it. We only knew that Kashmiri Pandits left Kashmir because they were not comfortable staying there. We didn’t know the reality. This film is showing the reality and that’s why we have been getting such an amazing response.”

Before The Kashmir Files, the actor had made headlines for his intense portrayal of Major Sameer of Pakistan in The Family Man collection.

The actor had acquired plenty of hate messages for his position within the spy-thriller collection.

Talking in regards to the dichotomy between Major Sameer and Krishna Pandit, Darshan says, “When I play any character I don’t see it as constructive or unfavourable. I simply see them as people who’ve feelings and a sure goal in life. I attempt to concentrate on that. We all the time imagine no matter we’re doing is the fitting factor. So, that’s what I did with Major Sameer. We have been supposed to point out his again story however we didn’t. His father received killed in the course of the struggle between India and Pakistan so he had his motto (to hunt revenge) and that’s what he believed and did.”

“As Darshan, I can judge Major Sameer that he is not a good guy because he is doing brutal things but while performing him I should be convinced, and then only will the audience be convinced. That’s what I did for Krishna Pandit in The Kashmir Files. I try to be real all the time and emote. I always think I’m the lead and I’m operating everything (laughs). Krishna is a very jittery guy filled with complex thoughts and Major Sameer has a different kind of confidence because he’s done thousand wrong things. Krishna is just like us young people who are confused and being fed with different narratives. Although we do try to find the truth, it’s always hidden. I think Krishna Pandit was the most difficult role for me as an actor,” Darshan concludes.
