Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety - MEDHA SHRI DAHIYA

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.
