Remember, the dyslexic student, Ishaan in Amir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par? Darsheel Safary made his Hindi Cinema Debut with this film and won the Filmfare Award for the Best actor (Critics) 10 years ago. Now Safary is 20 years old and is all set to reach heights in his acting career with his upcoming movie Quickie opposite Palak Tiwari.
Yes, you read it right, the Kasauti Zindagi Kay actress Shweta Tiwari's daughter Palak is all set to make her debut in Bollywood. The elegant lady will be seen sharing the screen space with Darsheel soon.
The film deals with the life of two teenagers Amey (Safary) and Priyanshi (Palak) who decide to have one-night-stand and face the repercussions later.
Writer and Director Pradip Atluri revealed some features of the movie by saying, “Teen Comedy is an unexplored and a neglected genre in India. Imagine the stories that can come out of twisted hormones and questioning minds. Most of our so called teenage films have characters who are 20 to 30 years old. The idea was to make a teenage film with real teenagers. Darsheel, 20, fit the bill instantly, but finding the lead actress became a difficult task. We auditioned hundreds of girls and even thought that maybe we should go with an older girl. But after 4 months of searching, we came across Palak, 17, who blew us away with her acting skills, subtle expressions, and confidence in the audition. Also, the fact that she is a teenager helps her to get into the character easily and aids her performance.”
Palak's mother, Shweta recently confirmed, “Yes, Palak is making her film debut. She is in talks for a film with Darsheel too. The official statement will be out soon." As per her personal life is concerned, Shweta ended her 9 years of marriage with Raja Chaudhary and later married Abhinav Kohli in 2013.
Darsheel went on to star in films like Bumm Bumm Bole (2010) and Midnight’s Children (2012) but it was Tare Zameen Par that will stay in the minds and hearts of audiences. He also participated in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 in 2012.
Well, the releasing date is yet to be finalised. We wish both the actors a good luck for their upcoming teenage project Quickie.
