I owe my career to debutant directors: Vicky Kaushal

New Delhi: Successive hits and a National Award later, actor Vicky Kaushal vividly remembers his time as a newcomer four years ago and says he owes his career to first-time directors.

The actor, who was first noticed in the then debutant director Neeraj Ghaywan’s 2015 social drama “Masaan”, said every film is a new project for both the actor and the filmmaker.

He later collaborated with a string of new directing talent like Mozez Singh for “Zubaan”, Anand Tiwari for “Love Per Square Foot”, and Aditya Dhar for “Uri: The Surgical Strike”, for which the actor earned the best actor National Award.

“I owe my career to debutant directors, so I’m quite used to working with first-timers. I just read the script and if I am sold on that, I meet the director to understand his vision. If I sense clarity and vision there, that’s what I am sold to,” Vicky said in an interview.

“I was also a newcomer at one point in time, I’m only four years old here. I am no veteran. Every film is a new film. I am as new as the director of that film and story. We have to work with that spirit. I tried to bring out the same fire in every film that I had in my first film,” he added.
