Ac­tor Vicky Kaushal (left) doesn’t be­lieve in the num­ber game. The ac­tor rather prefers films with a good sto­ry­line. The ac­tor says that he won’t mind do­ing even a two-minute role in a movie, if the story ap­peals to him. “Play­ing the lead role has never been my sole cri­te­ria. I feel drawn to­wards in­ter­est­ing sto­ries. I don’t bother about the du­ra­tion. Even if I play a small part, I en­sure I por­tray it well. I be­lieve story is the real hero, as the view­ers un­der­stand the value of a good story. I won’t deny the im­por­tance of a star, but a well-writ­ten plot and a good direc­tor can cre­ate magic,” he says. Hav­ing worked in films such as Masaan (2015), and Ra­man Raghav 2.0 (2016), Vicky says when­ever he hears the nar­ra­tion, he analy­ses if the film will find a con­nect with the au­di­ence or not. “I lis­ten to a story from the au­di­ence’s point of view as they will watch and judge the fi­nal prod­uct. I like to play com­ing-of-age char­ac­ters as there is a graph in them. The tran­si­tion such char­ac­ters go through, is also fas­ci­nat­ing,” adds Vicky. The 28-year-old be­lieves that the on­line plat­form is bloom­ing with good con­tent. “I would love to do web se­ries. They’re do­ing well on­line. I en­joy watch­ing them,” he says.
