Vicky Kaushal isn’t just drool-worthy but also a good actor, as can be seen from his performances in Uri: The Surgical Strike, Masaan, and Sanju. Now, Filmfare reports that Kaushal has bagged his first Yash Raj movie.

The entertainment portal further reports that the film is going to be a comedy and will be helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya of Tashan and Thugs of Hindostan fame.

“Contrary to reports stating it is a high-octane action film, the YRF offering is an out-and-out comedy and will see Vicky break away from his intense roles. Aditya Chopra, who has been keenly following the actor’s career, wants to tap into his comic side with this outing. If all goes as planned, the team will begin pre-production in October,” said a source.

Kaushal will be seen next in Sardar Udham Singh, Meghna Gulzar’s film on Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw and Karan Johar’s Takht.
