It is a well-known truth that Vicky Kaushal is the current favourite heartthrob of not only the audience but also the industry. The actor, after giving a successful blockbuster with URI: The Surgical Strike, has gone on to sign many big-bannered films like Karan Johar’s Bhoot – Part 1: The Haunted Ship and Takht, Shoojit Sircar’s Sardar Udham Singh, RSVP’s next based on Ashwatthama and Meghna Gulzar’s film on Sam Manekshaw. The actor and his talent are grabbing all the attention as well good roles.
But while the audience and industry is congratulating the actor on this success, his modesty holds him back from being overconfident.
When Box Office India spoke to him in an exclusive interview, we asked him whether he has taken a breath to congratulate himself and what he feels is the benchmark of success for him. To that he answered, “I have never felt that way after the success of a film. When scenes like the funeral scene in URI and the action sequences take everything out of you, that is when you feel you have given everything as an actor. That is when you feel like patting yourself on the back.
When your film does well, the world pats your back. That’s when I don’t pat my own back as a film’s success is the result of team effort. If a single piece goes missing from that puzzle, it will not be the film that we see in theaters.
You feel like patting your back while shooting the film, when you have connected with the character, given a good take and your director gives you the validation that you did a good job in a particular scene. That is when you feel like you have given something back to your job.”
Well, for Vicky, we have to say that his work and accomplishments are speaking volumes for him right now!
