We interviewed Darsheel Safary, portrayed as a dyslexic in ‘Taare Zameen Par’, a ‘child of God’ in ‘Bumm Bumm Bhole’ and presently, as a ‘crime superhero in Disney’s ‘Zokkomon’.
How does it feel to be a super hero?

Who are your favorite super-heroes?
Apart from Zokkomon, I also like Spiderman!

No. I still live a normal life, enjoy childhood and school life due to family and friends support.
How was working experience with ‘Zokkomon’?

How is your school life and what was your parents’ reaction to the film?
Now, I am in the 9th Std and school life is great! My parents haven’t seen the film yet, but are excited to see me as Zokkomon!
