Darsheel Safary is living life to the hilt

He is just all of 11 years, and a celebrity already. And, the little star from “Taare Zameen Par”, Darsheel Safary, is doing all that a star does, right from walking the ramp to inaugurating and unveiling comics.

He made his television debut with a programme on 9X, “Chak De Bache”. Directors are also pursuing him with offers, but he is tight-lipped about them. “Can’t say anything, I don’t have information.”

After waking the ramp with Neeta Lulla at Lakme India Fashion Week and unveiling Vimanika comics with hunky Milind Soman and Ranvijay, he has now been roped in as the brand ambassador for Horlicks. “Everything is exciting about being a brand ambassador for Horlicks,” he declares with fervour. Ask him why, and he says: “Because I can become taller, stronger and sharper with Horlicks.” And that is what he advises other children. He is all excited about the new Horlicks commercial too.

A five-minute tête-À-tête with him mainly revolves around his favourite actor, Hrithik Roshan, and his favourite cartoons, Tom and Jerry and Ben 10.

After this, he seems distracted and uninterested in talking. What more can one expect of a little boy who’d rather be left alone doing things his age rather than addressing the media? However, the chirpiness is back when he announces, “I have a flight to catch,” and scoots.
