Kannada star Darshan is busy with his acting assignments but that did not deter him from taking up a new role offered by the Karnataka Forest Department. The star agreed to be the department’s brand ambassador and is taking his new role seriously. 

Recently, he was at the Nagarahole Tiger Reserve in the Kabini region for a two-day camp and it was quite an eventful one. Reports say that Darshan fed the howdah elephant Arjuna with jaggery and it turned out to be an unforgettable experience for him. The star also went on a jungle safari during the stay and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the animals in the wild, including tigers. 

It may be mentioned that Darshan is an avid animal lover and has several animals as pets in his farm house in Mysuru. He has also adopted a few animals from the zoo.

On the work front, Darshan’s last film was Tarak, which released last year and did well at the box office. This film was a hit and he is now looking forward to the release of his 50th film Kurukshetra in which he plays Duryodhana. A spin-off of the epic Mahabharatha, it is told from Duryodhana’s perspective, according to sources. 

The film has a bevy of stars in the cast besides Darshan and they include Ambareesh, Arjun Sarja, V. Ravichandran, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, Sneha, Hariprriya, Meghana Raj and P. Ravi Shankar. This historical is directed by Naganna and produced by Muni Ratna under his banner KCN Movies on a huge budget.

While Kurukshetra is in the post-production mode and its makers are working on the release date, Darshan has shifted focus to Yajamana, which is being directed by Pon Kumaran. Reports are that both Kurushetra and Yajamana will hit the silver screens this year.
