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