Bollywood Featured What's Happenin'

Is Darshan Kumar the 'Indian Johnny Depp?'

For all the girls who go weak-kneed at the sight of Johnny Depp, they might just be soon falling head over heels in love Darshan Kumar. The actor who won the hearts of all in MARY KOM opposite Priyanka Chopra recently did a shoot wherein he looks a lot like the Hollywood hunk.

The actor who will next be seeing in NH10 with Anushka Sharma was recently shot by Atul Kasbekar’s assistant, and the resultant uncanny resemblance with Depp, staggered all!

When asked about it, Darshan Kumar says,

“Since my schooling years to wherever I have worked there have been instances where people have complimented me saying I look like Johnny Depp. I frankly, always took it with a pinch of salt, after all, Johnny Depp is one of the best actors in the world, his repertoire of work is formidable and his looks are well, much appreciated. But then when I met Atul Sir, he too said the same thing, and somehow that meant a lot to me. So we all got together planning a photo shoot, and while at it, his assistant Abhijeet Parker got an idea! He made me try shooting in a look that was very close to that of Depps, in one of his shoots. We tried it and what you see is the outcome!

Truly, the resemblance is uncanny!  And yet, all Dharshan has to say is,

“It is a great to be compared to the best, but of course, it would much rather be known as Darshan Kumar. If God willing, I get famous, I would rather be famous with my own name!”
