Vicky Kaushal to star in Karan Johar’s short for Bombay Talkies 2.0
Vicky Kaushal has become one of the most popular faces in the industry after his performance in Masaan. After Masaan, Vicky did Raman Raghav 2.0 and Zubaan and gradually became a favorite of filmmakers, he was chosen for Dutt biopic to play an important role in the film followed by Mehgna Gulzar’s Raazi opposite Alia Bhatt and now will soon essay the lead in Ronnie Screwvala’s production Uri, based on the recent surgical strike by the Indian army. Adding to all this, he has now been confirmed of being a part of Karan Johar’s short in Bombay Talkies 2.0
Talking about it, Vicky said, “I am thankful that film-makers such as Raju sir and Karan sir are showing trust in me. It is a lot for this newcomer who is only just started. Just to be getting these opportunities means a lot to me.” Shedding light on Bombay Talkies 2, he says, “All the short films will be based on the theme of ‘love and lust’. It’s got me, Kiara (Advani) and Neha (Dhupia) and though the theme is love and lust, it’s also peppered with a lot of good situational comedy. Karan had experimented in the first film and he is also sort of experimenting this time too but it won’t be a serious film. I am excited and it’s like a dream come true to be directed by him,” he says.
The film’s shoot will be wrapped up in a week and it goes on the floors in the first week of December. Recalling, how he bagged the project Vicky says, “It really was a pleasant surprise for me that he considered me for his film. That’s why when someone asks me about my career I say that I feel like I am in a dream sequence. God has been really kind because whatever is happening in my life right now is way better than anything I had imagined when I started off. I feel lucky and blessed that these films are coming my way.”
