Bengaluru: Kannada film actor Darshan on Friday became the brand ambassador of the agriculture department and offered to model for farmers for free.

I will also toil for the cause of farmers," he said at an event organised at the Vidhana Soudha.
Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and Agriculture Minister B C Patil expressed joy over Darshan's gesture. "I never expected 'Challenging Star' Darshan to volunteer as the brand ambassador. With his huge fan following, the agriculture sector will benefit a lot," the Chief Minister said. He said he would watch Darshan's upcoming movie 'Roberrt'.
