Multi-talented star Vicky Kaushal has managed to entice censor board as well as the viewers with his superb performances. Despite the fact that he is the son of well-known action director Sham Kaushal, it was not a simple task for Vicky to make an entry in the Hindi film industry.
While talking to the media people in a special interview, Vicky talked over his journey so far.
The superb star also bagged a chance to enroll IT job after completing his college, however, he knew that his main interest was in acting.
Vicky disclosed that his dad did a lot of struggle in Bollywood, and asked him to think his choice of foraying in the movie industry through.
The actor said, “When my mom married him – they lived in a small 10×10 room, with a chattai and a chair. My father built everything from there on. He didn’t have it easy – he had to hunt for our next meal… That’s why when I told him I wanted to act – he told me to be sure.”
But, Vicky had made up his mind for Bollywood. He tore up his job offer and started out for auditions.
“My first one was horrifying. It was for a small role in a big film and I realised how far from everything I was. On my way home, I was like ‘Vicky, ab toh tune job letter bhi phaad diya!’ I was afraid, but I literally couldn’t give up,” he reported.
Vicky showcased his skills in numerous auditions and even became a part of theatre to improve his acting skills. His struggles won when Neeraj Ghaywan’s critically applauded Masaan reached the audience.
“That’s when my dad saw my performance on a big screen. He was really proud – when he got a phone call from one of his friends – saying ‘Vicky ke papa’. He called me in 10 mins saying ‘you know what happened? Someone called me Vicky’s dad today!,” he shared.
“My happiest moment since then was when I first bought my own car with my own money,” he said. “So I took my mom to the showroom and she said, ‘You remember when you were younger, you used to point out toy cars in those shops? And today you’re making me sit in your car.’ She had tears in her eyes,” he added up.
