Actor Vicky Kaushal feels lucky that there were reports of him being considered to play Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in Padmavati a role which will now be played by Shahid Kapoor.
Much before Shahid came on board for the role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama, there was a buzz that the 28-year-old “Masaan” star had auditioned for the role.
“To be very honest, I am so new in the industry so if Bhansali ji’s name is associated with such a young guy for a film even the news that he was considering me, is a huge deal for me,” Vicky told reporters here last night.
“It (the feeling) is like I’ve done a film, and it has become a hit. I am really grateful for whatever is happening
in my life right now,” he added.
He was speaking at the premiere of A Death in a Gunj at 18th Jio MAMI Mumbai film festival with Star. Meanwhile, the actor is gearing up for his next, producer Ronnie Screwvala’s upcoming venture. The romantic-comedy marks Ronnie’s return to film production after a gap of two years.
“I am going to start shooting for a film which is going to be produced by Rony Screwala and directed by Anand Tiwari. We will shoot it in the next two months, and it should be out by I think mid or sometime next year,” Vicky said.
“It is something which I haven’t done till now. It is a very light-hearted popcorn film.”
According to reports, Ronnie will produce the film under his own banner, RSVP (Ronnie Screw(V)ala Productions). Earlier, he headed the UTV Group.
