Vicky Kaushal, who spring-boarded to the top league after winning National Film Award for his powerful performance in patriotic drama Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019), has his plate full with several interesting films.

He is currently preparing for the much-awaited period drama Takht. To be directed by Karan Johar, the historical film also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor in its principal cast. He has also collaborated with well-known filmmaker Shoojit Sircar on a biopic on great revolutionary and freedom fighter Udham Singh.

But before Takht and Udham Singh arrive in cinemas, Vicky Kaushal will be seen in Dharma Productions’ horror flick Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship. To be directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh, the movie also features Bhumi Pednekar in the lead role. Since Kaushal is not very fond of watching horror movies, he was sceptical about doing it before reading the script. However, he changed his mind after going through the script.

“I was contemplating before I read the script not after I read the script. So, before I read the script I was like ‘Horror? I don’t know what and how would it be because I myself I am very scared to watch horror films. So, I didn’t know. When I read the script it really spooked me out and I thought it never tried to make me feel scared it was just happening while I was reading and I really got sucked into that story,” Vicky told a newswire.

He further added, “So, once that happens then it is about following your heart… It is a Dharma Productions, so you know it’s a good production house. Then I met (director) Bhanu (Pratap Singh), he was really excited about his horror film… Horror is something that comes naturally to him. I knew I would be in safe hands.”

Earlier scheduled to enter theatres on November 15, Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship has now been moved to 2020.
