Having garnered fame from the film Masaan, Vicky Kaushal has carved his name in Bollywood. The actor who has currently wrapped up shooting Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi opposite Alia Bhatt, has confirmed the news of his casting in Karan Johar’s Bombay Talkies 2.0. He will be playing the lead in the film opposite Kiara Advani.
Speaking about the same, Vicky said to a leading Indian daily, “I am thankful that filmmakers 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.”
Talking about the film Bombay Talkies 2.0, he said, “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.”
The shooting of the film will be completed in a week’s time and the film will be released in the first week of December. Speaking about his name being considered as the lead for the film, Vicky said, “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.”
Vicky Kaushal will also be seen in the lead role in Ronnie Screwvala’s upcoming film which will revolve around the surgical strike by the Indian army in Uri .
