Mumbai: Actor Darshan Kumar, who played Priyanka Chopra's husband in "Mary Kom", will now be seen in "NH10". He hopes to win an Academy Award for his acting talent someday.
"As an actor I want to win all the awards. Winning an Oscar is my dream," Darshan told IANS.
Alas, the actor did not bag any award for his debut venture "Mary Kom".
"I was nominated for 'Mary Kom', but I did not get an award. I failed to impress the jury with my debut film but, hope to impress them with 'NH10'.
"Naseeruddin Shah loved my performance in 'Mary Kom', and as an actor, getting appreciated by him is very satisfying," he added.
He says "NH10" is an "unusual film and my role is very different".
"I'm extremely happy to be a part of this project," added Darshan, whose character in "NH10" will reportedly have shades of grey. He will be seen playing the love interest of Anushka Sharma.
Directed by Navdeep Singh, "NH10" is a thriller which is co-produced by Phantom Productions and Eros International. This movie marks Anushka's debut as a film producer.
