vicky kaushal, shah rukh khan,

Actor Vicky Kaushal made his Bollywood debut in 2015 with Masaan. Since then he didn’t look back and started giving stellar performances back-to-back. He is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film, Govinda Naam Mera co-starring Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, it is a full masala entertainer and Vicky has donned a never-seen-before character. They are busy promoting the film currently. In an interview, Vicky revealed one important acting lesson that Shah Rukh Khan taught him. Read on to know.


In an interview with PTI, Vicky called himself a ‘director’s actor and believes in ‘surrendering to the filmmaker’s vision’. He added, “It’s (world) really something very, very new that I have attempted… Eventually, it is about adding the grammar of the director’s vision to your process. That precisely is my process or at least a very integral part of my process.”

The National award-winning actor also recalled learning from SRK the trick to ‘convincingly embody a character’. The Uri actor further added, “I learned a very interesting thing from Shah Rukh Khan sir. He told me there is always a grammar attached to every film and it comes with the director, what vision he has. It is important to understand the grammar that the director is coming with and my job is to fully suspend myself.”

Coming back to Govinda Naam Mera, the film will release on Disney+Hostar on December 16. You can watch the trailer here.

Apart from Govinda Naam Mera, Vicky also has Meghana Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur, a biopic film based on the life of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. The film also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra. He will also be seen with Sara Ali Khan in Laxman Utekar’s yet-to-be-titled flick.
