I aspire to be a self-made actor: Vicky Kaushal

Friday, March 04, 2016

He may be the son of action director Shyam Kaushal but Vicky Kaushal fetched acclaim on the merit of his performance with debut “Masaan” and the actor says he wants to continue his film journey without using his father’s credentials.

The 27 year old had his fair share of struggle like going through the rounds of meeting people and auditioning, before he bagged his first film role. Vicky says he has seen his father go through the grind of showbiz before making a name for himself and he would like to take the same path to success.

“When I told my father that I wanted to join the film industry, he asked me if I was sure about it as acting is a very insecure profession. He also asked me if my reason to join the same profession like him was to have an easy road. I said no. I have seen him struggle, he never hid his struggle from us. He made sure we know how he has reached where he is today and the hardships and sacrifices that have gone in.”

However, Vicky said his father has assured him that he will always be there to guide him in his career, but only as a parent and not help him get opportunities. “My father said he will always support me but just not as an action director. It is a deal between both of us. He is an inspiration because he is a self-made man. I will fight it out,” he said.

Growing up, Vicky did not have the typical star kid environment at home. Nor was he star-struck and almost never visited his father on sets, except for that one time when he went to see his favourite actor Hrithik Roshan while he was filming “Fiza” with Shyam.

“When I was growing up, my father never got his profession to the house. We didn’t discuss films at the dinning table. I wasn’t the star obsessed person, I never wanted to meet stars on film sets. Even today, I don’t feel like a star. I am overwhelmed with the love and acceptance I got and it has motivated me to push my own limits. As an actor, it is my deliberate choice to explore and test myself.”
