Enter the magic world of Harry Potter once again
Twenty years ago, on June 26, 1997, people were introduced to the magical world of Harry Potter and things changed forever. The classic, which is based on the seven book series by J. K. Rowling, is all set to be showcased in India, in Hindi.
Taare Zameen Par famed Darsheel Safari, who has been roped in as the face of Harry Potter, was seen promoting the movie series in the national capital, recently.
A huge fan of the Harry Potter Series since childhood, Darsheel feels that everyone should experience this one-of-a-kind musical extravaganza on &Pictures. Talking about his affinity for the specific movie series, Darsheel says, "There was a time in school when I would enact casting spells with my pencil and wooden stick. All actors have a dream role and mine is my childhood dream of being a part of the wizardly school."
The actor, who was seen in quite a few movies after his debut, disappeared from the screen for a long time. "Though I was not very active in doing movies I never took a break from work. I was involved in street plays, theatre and much more.
So, I have been learning a lot because I feel that theatre makes you a true actor. On stage, one cannot afford to make a single mistake because it will get noticed immediately. Therefore, because I love acting as a whole, I want to show it through different mediums."
Harry Potter is the story of a boy who unexpectedly came to know that he is a wizard. Though there have been several other dubbed versions of Harry Potter series in Hindi, Darsheel says, "This one is far better in terms of the quality and the type of language used. Our basic idea was to simplify the complexities of the language used in the movie for the better understanding of the people. It's hard to believe for me that there are people who have no idea about who Harry Potter is."
Commenting on the lack of craze for the movies in India, Darsheel contradicts the statement saying, "Bollywood in itself is a craze but of course we don't get to see that 'anxious-waiting-for-the next-part-of-the-series type of craze'. Baahubali was the last time we spotted such a situation in the country. So, probably if Harry Potter is made in India, it will create buzz.
The Harry Potter film series will kick-start on September 17 at 11 am with the successful franchise's first installment Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone.
