When Vicky Kaushal entered the entertainment industry, he didn't think that one day he would be a national crush. The actor started out as an assistant director in Gangs of Wasseypur and eventually moved to acting. He featured in several critically acclaimed films such as Masaan, Raman Raghav 2.0 to name a few. Vicky Kaushal's stint in Raazi, Sanju earned him a lot of praise but it was his URI: The Surgical Strike that brought him huge success. In a recent interview, Vicky Kaushal opened up on this unprecedented fame and how it has affected him in more ways than one.
The Sardar Udham Singh actor says that success and fame have only made him a 'more self-assured person'. With fame, I think one ends up becoming a little guarded. Because, your personal lives suddenly come into the public domain—and you don’t want all the discussion and scrutiny to affect your loved ones. Earlier, I was more forthcoming about everything in my life. But stuff gets written about you without any authenticity, without it being cross-checked. It almost becomes a game of Chinese whispers—how it starts and how it ends are two completely different stories altogether. And then you have to offer up several clarifications and justifications. So, with time, I have learnt to be more careful about issues that are not work-related, and to safeguard my privacy," Vicky Kaushal told Cosmopolitan India.
While he loves and appreciates all the love pouring on him on social media, the actor doesn't like the unnecessary judgments that have become a part of the social media culture these days. "I don’t like the way things work on social media—you get judged too soon. The appreciation is a blessing, but sometimes, this uncalled-for trolling can be upsetting," the Sam Manekshaw actor admitted while adding, "However, I won’t trade what I have for anything else. The good is so good, it overshadows the bad. I did want to be an actor, but I hadn’t thought, in my wildest dreams, that God would be so kind to me."
