WATCH: Love was an act of war! Indo-Canadian Actress opens her heart to DARPAN about her career successes, struggles and future plans as she debuts with her directorial venture. "You got to earn it," she says, "there are no hand-outs." "My beginning as an actor was easy, but it was a couple of years later I realized how difficult the industry is and how it comes with so many ups and downs. It involves just putting you out there, so many no’s, heart breaks, yet so many experiences."

When Deepa Mehta's 'Funny Boy' was chosen as Canada's Oscars submission for best international film, the South Asian community was delighted. After all, the story revolves around a boy who grew up gay in Sri Lanka during the Tamil-Sinhalese conflict. The movie is based on the adaptation of Shyam Selvadurai’s 1994 award-winning novel, Funny Boy. The entire cast and crew including Seema Biswas, Ali Kazmi, Nimmi Harasgama, are riding the victory wave.

DARPAN caught up with Agam Darshi who plays Radha in the movie for an exclusive interaction. Catch "Funny Boy" in select theatres and NETFLIX.
