    Darsheel’s Career

    Safary, who was raised in a Gujarati Jain household, made his screen debut as the lead character of Taare Zameen Par (2007) as Ishaan Nandkishore Awasthi. While searching for a male lead for Taare Zameen Par in late 2006, screenwriter and creative director Amol Gupte came across Safary. During Shiamak Davar’s “Summer Funk” dancing school, Gupte eventually selected Safary after going through hundreds of tryouts. Before selecting Safary, Gupte had other boys try out for a scene where, given a few possibilities, they would jokingly describe how they would “bunk” school. “That was a tough call,” he remembers. However, Darsheel believes that Ishaan is the mischievous one. Everyone drew toward him instinctively.”
