His work not only captures the essence of each narrative but also invites audiences into a realm where every frame is a piece of art, meticulously crafted to evoke emotion and provoke thought.

Originally hailing from India, Darsh’s early inclination towards filmmaking was met with resistance from his family. It was in the unassuming corners of street photography that he found solace initially. This venture gradually blossomed into fashion conceptual photography, marking the beginning of his exploration into visual storytelling. The turning point came when he was offered an opportunity to direct a music video—a chance encounter that propelled him into the realms of commercials and eventually led him to discover his profound connection with cinema.



Darsh recalls this transformative period with humility and insight: “I’m originally from India, and then when I grew older I moved to Mumbai to work in the entertainment industry. But initially, my family wasn’t supportive of what I wanted to do. So I started with street photography, you know, what was available around me. Slowly I did some fashion conceptual photography. Then one day someone offered me the opportunity to direct a music video. From there I slowly branched into commercials and soon stumbled into film. I had no idea I wanted to do a film, but now I’ve been doing it for almost four years and it’s become a way of life. It’s a privilege to make art in a world full of war.”
