    Darsheel Safary turns super-hero in Zokkomon

    By Raymond Ronamai

    Darsheel Safary can"t believe he"s a super-hero at the age of 12.

    “Zokkomon has been a very hard film to shoot, much harder than Taare Zameen Par. But it was worth it. I get to fly through the air, over buildings, save and rescue people. I felt like a true hero," says Darsheel delightedly. “What"s more I had my own special really cool costume, like Superman"s cape… even better!"

    Does Darsheel realize he"s the youngest super-hero in the world? He chuckles, “I do realize that. But after Taare… I had to prove to the world that I can do better, no? So I had to do a really special film."

    Darsheel says his studies were hard to keep up with because of the long hours of training and shooting for Zokkomon. “My teachers used to come on the sets, so I wouldn"t lag behind in my studies. It was really tough doing this film. But finally worth it. Because my friends will see me flying through the air. I can"t wait."

    What would Darsheel"s friends and girlfriend think of him playing the super-hero? “The question on the girlfriend is a personal one," says the mature superstar. “As for my friends they"d probably freak out. I"m enjoying the thought of being the youngest super-hero in the world."

    Tell him Shahrukh Khan is playing a super-hero, and Darsheel says cleverly, “His super-hero would be very different, much older. I"m just a child. He"s grown up. I am sure his Ra.1 is very different from my Zokkomon.
