Darshan Kumaar has captured hearts once again with his performance in "Kaagaz 2," earning praise for his portrayal of a complex character on screen. Reuniting with Neena Ji, his mentor from their theatre days, Darshan reflects on their journey together and the joy of working alongside her once more.

Speaking about this reunion, Darshan Kumaar expressed, 

“Neena ji is my first Guru in Mumbai and has played an instrumental role in shaping my journey. Within a few months of my arrival in mumbai, I was lucky as I got an opportunity to join Neena ji's theatre group called Sahaj. We performed  various theatre shows with Neena ji as my director and co-actor. It was during these plays I learnt some invaluable lessons under her guidance.”

He further continued saying, 

“To my utter delight now I got  the opportunity to share screen space with Neena ji in the film Kaagaz 2, where she portrays the role of my mother. Right from the very first day, our bond was instant. During a particular scene, wherein Neena ji's character gets very emotional, I impulsively rose from my seat, gave her a warm hug and  whispered, "I love you, Mom." This imporvisation delighted all, including Satish ji even though it was not originally scripted. Working alongside Neena ji is always amazing as as laughter and joyfullness fills the air. The experiences we shared during this project are truly priceless.“

For the unversed, in the film, Darshan Kumaar portrays an IMA officer, captivating audiences with his performance. As "Kaagaz 2" continues to charm audiences in theatres, Darshan's journey alongside Neena Ji remains a testament to their enduring camaraderie and shared passion for storytelling.
