Not afraid of fail­ure, it teaches you a lot, says Vicky Kaushal

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

Ac­tor Vicky Kaushal (right) walked into Bol­ly­wood as a sim­ple char­ac­ter in a pow­er­ful film, Masaan, and went on to scoop most of the awards for his de­but role. The ac­tor says he is ex­plor­ing him­self with each film, adding that he is not afraid to "fall some day in this ex­plo­ration".

De­scrib­ing his ride in show­biz as a "per­son­al­ity de­vel­op­ment crash course", Vicky says he is on a "jour­ney of self dis­cov­ery". With no in­ten­tions to re­strict him­self into a par­tic­u­lar mould, the ac­tor plans to live di­verse char­ac­ters on the sil­ver screen.

"I know that I am new. I am just one-year-old in the in­dus­try and I am ex­plor­ing my­self. If I fall some day in try­ing to find my­self, then I don't mind be­cause I know I learnt some­thing. So what mat­ters to me is that I en­joy the jour­ney of a film. I am not afraid of fail­ure. Fail­ures teach you a lot," said Vicky. The ac­tor did small roles in films like Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khu­rana (2012) and "Bom­bay Vel­vet (2015). Yet it was Masaan which got him in the lime­light. Crit­ics and view­ers raved about the sim­plic­ity with which he es­sayed the role, and heaped praise over the smooth tran­si­tion from a love-struck boy to a ma­ture per­son in the film.

He went on to do films like Zubaan and Ra­man Raghav 2.0, and has up­com­ing projects as well. Is he in­ten­tion­ally pick­ing multi-star­rers? He says, "I don't pick a film see­ing if it has an­other ac­tor. If I get a script, I go through it and if I love the vi­sion of the film­maker then I want to be a part of that story."

I know that I am new. If I fall some day in try­ing to find my­self, then I don’t mind be­cause I learnt some­thing VICKY KAUSHAL, AC­TOR
