Vicky Kaushal is one of the most versatile actors we have in our Hindi film industry. From essaying a doting husband in Raazi to essaying the fervent soldier in Uri, the actor has managed to impress the audience with each of his roles. While Kaushal likes to experiment with a lot of different genres of films, there are still some roles he would like to play on screen. During his exclusive chat with MW during our cover interview for July, the Manmarziyaan actor revealed what kind of role he is looking forward to playing on screen.
“Many, actually,” he says, “I have not gotten a period film yet. Or a film where I play an athlete, a sportsperson, or one where I will need to have a completely new skill set. I would have said comedy too, but I am doing one right now,” he adds.
Further talking about how storytelling has changed from the time he entered Bollywood to now, Kaushal said that nothing has really changed. “Back then or now, when I read the story, or hear the script for the first time, I am always hearing or reading it out loud as an audience who will be watching it. I think it is a very important stage for me. The first box that needs to get ticked is if your hard work, your passion gets reflected in a way that the film also intends. If there is this excitement in me to share this story or share any aspect of it with my family, then it’s a very good high.
And if the director is someone I have been really wanting to work with. For example, I really wanted to work with Shoojit Sircar. So when Sardar Udham Singh came my way, it was a great opportunity. But primarily when it comes to a story, it has to touch my heart. That is something that I, as an audience, look for, especially in today’s time when it is not about the name attached or anything, but just about the stories that affect people. If it is a great story with complete newcomers or a new film-maker, people support it,” he explains.
