When Vicky gave a mind-blowing audition
Actor Vicky Kaushal (right) has already impressed many with his performance in director Neeraj Ghaywan’s latest release, in which he stars alongside actor Richa Chaddha. While the film, which went on to win two awards at Cannes Film Festival has become his debut, this wasn’t the first film he got selected for. He was first chosen for debutant director Mozez Singh’s upcoming musical. And, it is quite a story how Vicky landed Mozez’s film. He was selected after 400 people had already auditioned for the role. Mozez tells us: “For months on end, I had auditioned over 400 aspiring actors and was dissatisfied with all of them. Then, Vicky came for the audition and he blew my mind!”
Vicky is thankful to Mozez for putting his faith in the actor. “Mozez will always be special to me since his is the first movie I signed. I’ll be grateful to Mozez for his belief that I could pull off the challenging role,” says Vicky, who has been getting praise from the likes of actor Amitabh Bachchan. “Yes, Mr Bachchan had nice things to say about my performance in my latest film. I will cherish his words,” he says.
