Vicky Kaushal made his Bollywood debut with the 2015 film Masaan. But it took him three years to make his mark in Bollywood. After the success of Raazi, Sanju, and Manmarziyan, people took notice of this new boy in town. However, it was Aditya Dhar’s Uri: The Surgical Strike that made Vicky Kaushal a household name. The film turned out to be the first hit of 2019.
Talking about the overwhelming response, Vicky told a daily, “Just before the film was to release, Aditya [Dhar, director] and I was discussing how the entire team has given their all – physically, mentally and emotionally – to the project. Though we were content with our efforts and we didn’t expect the audience to go bonkers.”
Apart from the Bhanu Pratap directorial, Vicky has several other projects in hand. He also has Shoojit Sircar’s Udham Singh biopic and Karan Johar’s Takht in the pipeline. Vicky had a great run at the cinemas in 2018. The actor won accolades for his performance in movies like Sanju and Manmarziyaan.
