Vicky Kausal started his career as an assistant director for Anurag Kashyap’s mafia film, Gangs of Wasseypur. At that no one would have thought of Vicky reaching the heights at which he today is.
Today Vicky is being offered multiple roles from Karan Johar and he has to choose any one of them. Vicky has almost completed the shoot for Mr.Lele with Kiara Advani. But Vicky’s professionalism and easy going attitude attracted Karan Johar’s eyes. Hence, the director offered him another film
An insider revealed to Pinkvilla, “Karan is very impressed with the professional manner that Vicky conducts his shoots and decided to offer him another movie under his production house. Despite the pandemic, the shoot of Mr. Lele, which began this year, is almost complete. Vicky is a no nakhra star, always on time, a director’s actor, and a delight to work with. While he has many top projects under his belt including Shoojit Sircar’s Sardar Udham Singh, Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur, Vijay Krishna Acharya’s next with Manushi Chillar and Mr.Lele, most of them are complete, except Meghna’s movie.”
Vicky’s association with Dharma Production began with Raazi where he played the role of a Pakistani Army Officer. The insider added, “Vicky has been offered both – a rom-com and an action-drama and it is up to him which he may choose to do. KJo’s production house has lots of exciting scripts on hand and it was one of those that was offered to the actor. The filmmaker and the actor share a warm bond which has only strengthened after Mr. Lele and they keep meeting now on a regular basis. Vicky’s dates are being sorted out as they had gone for a toss like many actors.”
