Despite facing taunts for his appearance, it was those very teeth that ultimately landed Darsheel the role that made him a household name in India.

In a candid interview with Hindustan Times in 2022, Darsheel reflected on his childhood experiences, saying, “In my personal life, away from acting too, I have had these things. I’ve been made fun of for my height, for my teeth and everything. My teeth were like 1 kilometer out. It all happens for a reason. All that happened and then I got the film because of those teeth. The way I look at it is that it is a learning thing. That is how you don’t get affected.”
