Vicky Kaushal: Be it a small role or a lead, my approach towards the character doesn’t change
Technically, Vicky Kaushal stepped into Bollywood as an assistant director in ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’. He proved his mettle as an actor with his first movie in 2015. From Deepak of ‘Maasan’, drug-addict cop Raghavan in ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’ to the affable Iqbal Syed in ‘Raazi’, Vicky has impressed us with his acting marvels. Today, a lot of filmmakers are keen to work with this young talent because the audience is able to connect with the characters he plays.
Vicky is gearing for his next release ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ and just ahead of the release of the movie, he spoke exclusively to Bollywood Bubble. The war drama will see Vicky in the lead role of an army officer. When we asked him how he feels about seeing himself in the lead role, the actor said, “The script makes you lead. Even if you give me a scene I will put that much honesty as I would put in a film where I am the lead. Be it a lead or doing a small role, my approach towards the character doesn’t change. You have to be honest no matter whether you are doing one scene or a hundred scenes in a movie. We are living in a time when, even if an actor does well in one scene, they still google his name out.”
He further said, “It’s a nice feeling that New Year is going to start with my film and otherwise also, I am very proud to be a part of ‘Uri’. I think we have tried our level best to give a tribute to the Indian army and I am very excited to know the audiences’ response to the film.”
The movie is based on the surgical strike by Indian Army on terrorist camps in 2016. Directed by Aditya Dhar, ‘Uri’ also stars Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles. It will hit the screens on January 11, 2019.
