Darsheel to star in Priyadarshan's next directorial venture
Child prodigy Darsheel Safary won everyone's hearts with his sensitive portrayal of dyslexic Ishaan Awasthi in Aamir Khan's directorial debut Taare Zameen Par. Since then, Darsheel has been seen endorsing many brands and has even made appearances at a number of social dos and award functions. However, he still was playing the waiting game before signing his next film.
Now it seems the wait is finally over. Darsheel would be seen playing the lead role in the remake of Oscar nominated film Children of Heaven. The remake would be directed by ace director Priyadarshan.
Majid Majidi's Children of Heaven tells to story of young Ali and his sister Zahra and their adventures over a lost pair of shoes. Shooting for the remake, which is being produced by Percept Picture Company, commences on September 12. The film is expected to be ready by March 2009.
