Vicky Kaushal: I am a safe person in real life, but don’t mind experimenting on screen
Actor Vicky Kaushal is currently riding high with the super success of ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’. The Aditya Dhar directorial turned out to be a blockbuster and earned over Rs. 200 crore at the box-office. Since his debut with ‘Masaan’, the handsome actor has explored diverse subjects and genres of films which have given him a chance to showcase his versatility through projects like ‘Love Per Square Foot’, ‘Sanju’, ‘Lust Stories’ and ‘Manmarziyaan’. From playing second fiddle to bagging lead roles, the actor has come a long way.
In an interview for GQ India’s March 2019 issue, Vicky Kaushal said, “I’m a safe person. I’m that guy who has a favourite ice cream flavour, who’ll go to the same ice cream parlour and order that one flavour he likes. When it comes to fashion, I’m more of a solids and stripes guy.”
“If I even feel like experimenting, it will be with shoes or sunglasses – I’m a sucker for white sneakers. With my roles, though, I’m experimental: I don’t like simple things, steady things, easy things. I want to make it complicated. I want layers, I want colours, I want shades,” he added.
On the film front, the actor said that he is quite open in his mind about the kind of characters he wants to take up. “The key is to be open, to be like a magnet. But it’s important to know what you want to attract. For me, it’s good scripts. The day I limit myself, thinking that I want to do only a certain genre, a certain kind of film, I’ll be making things difficult for myself,” he said.
