    Vicky Kaushal is undoubtedly one of the most talented and sought-after actors of Bollywood today. He got his first lead role in the independent drama Masaan and went on to wow the audience by playing supporting characters in super hit films such as Raazi and Sanju. However, it was with Aditya Dhar’s directorial Uri: The Surgical Strike that Vicky rose to prominence as a true star. He left the audience stunned by his ‘high josh’ and killer action sequences and also bagged the National Film Award for Best Actor.

    Also featuring Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam, Mohit Raina and Kirti Kulhari, the film was roughly based on the surgical strikes conducted by India as retaliation to the 2016 Uri attack. In a recent chat with Mumbai Mirror, the actor opened up about the success of his film and shared that Uri was a physically and emotionally draining film and he feels really happy to see how it resonated with the audience. Vicky went on to add that the National Award was ‘the cherry on top’.

    Well, the actor is all set to leave the audience in awe once again with his exciting upcoming projects including Ashwatthama and Takht. He will be playing the titular role of Guru Dronacharya's son in the former, which is meant to go on floors next year, and feels that it is an ambitious and huge project. On the other hand, he will be portraying the character of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in Karan Johar’s Takht, which also features Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt amongst others. Talking about the film, he shared, “It was a dream to be a part of this period-drama. I've admired the work of all the artistes who are a part of this film.”

    Currently Vicky is spending time at home amid the coronavirus lockdown and will be celebrating his 32nd birthday on 16th May. Talking about celebrating his birthday in home-quarantine, the actor shared, “I never thought that we'd be in a situation where things literally come to a standstill. Leave alone a birthday in lockdown, I never even imagined a lockdown before.”

    Well, we hope the actor can celebrate with a proper birthday bash once the lockdown is over!
