Vicky Kaushal began the latest episode of Neha Dhupia’s chat show No Filter Neha by singing a rap from his latest film Manmarziyaan. He then talked about the female attention he is getting after the success of his recent releases and went on to accept that he is in love. The actor also opened up about ace director Anurag Kashyap.
Kaushal, who was last seen in Anurag Kashyap directorial Manmarziyaan along with Taapsee Pannu and Abhishek Bachchan, shares a special bond with the filmmaker. Their association dates back to the days when Vicky’s father and action director Sham Kaushal worked with Kashyap in films like Black Friday and Gulaal.
So, when Neha asked the 30-year-old actor three bad things about his mentor-turned-friend Anurag Kashyap, Vicky Kaushal said, “Firstly, I would say that he is too impulsive, which sometimes gets him in the wrong spot. He just ends up hurting himself. Secondly, I would say that because of that impulsive reaction, he sometimes forms judgments about people and situations which are not necessarily true. Third, as a friend, I would say ‘yaar thodi drinking kam kar do’ (please quit drinking).”
Further, in the conversation, Vicky revealed about his fear of watching horror stories. He narrated the story of how he had to watch Andaz Apna Apna to erase the memories of The Conjuring. The actor said, “I can’t watch horror films. I am the biggest fattu. I have watched The Conjuring with a group of friends and I was so fattaoed (scared) after that. My friends had gone off to sleep. I had to watch Andaz Apna Apna right after it to erase all the memories of The Conjuring. I watched Andaz Apna Apna and that’s when I felt normal and that’s when I could go to sleep.”
Reluctantly though but Vicky Kaushal also admitted to being in love during the podcast. When the host of the show Neha asked Vicky to dedicate a song to Harleen Sethi, lead actor of upcoming web series Broken But Beautiful, the Masaan actor crooned Diljit Dosanjh’s hit number, “Do you know main tenu kinna pyar karda”. Later, in another segment where the actor had to tell which person will he swipe left (reject), right (date) or up (super like) on Tinder, he chose to swipe up many times for Harleen.
On the work front, Vicky is gearing up for the release of his next film Uri. In the movie, the actor will be seen playing the role of an Indian commando who was involved in the 2016 surgical strike.
