Vicky Kaushal is the daughter of action director Sham Kaushal and actress Veena Kaushal. He graduated from Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in engineering. He assisted Anurag Kashyap in the crime drama Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) and afterwards played minor roles in two of Kashyap’s films. Following that, he acted as an insane cop in Kashyap’s psychological thriller Raman Raghav 2.0, which garnered him the IIFA and Screen Awards for Best Male Debut (2016).
With supporting appearances in Raazi and Sanju, two of the year’s highest-grossing Hindi films, Kaushal ascended to popularity in 2018. He got a Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor for the latter film. He also starred in the Netflix flicks Love per Square Foot and Lust Stories in 2018.
Sham Kaushal, a stuntman and future action director in Hindi films, and Veena Kaushal gave birth to Kaushal on May 16, 1988 in a chawl in suburban Mumbai. Sunny, his younger sibling is also a performer. His ancestors come from the Punjab region of India. Kaushal describes himself as a “normal child” who enjoys studies, cricket, and movies. Kaushal took an engineering degree in electronics and telecommunications from Mumbai’s Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology because his parents wanted their son to have a secure profession. He realised that an office job would be undesirable for him during an industrial visit to an IT company, and he began to aspire to a career in film as a result. He obtained a job as an engineer for a short time before joining his father on set.
Kaushal revealed his second collaboration with Gulzar, the military drama Sam Bahadur; in which he will play Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, in June 2019. The teaser for his period drama Takht was released on February 1, 2020. The film features an ensemble cast and was originally scheduled to be released in March 2020; but was postponed due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Due to the COVID-19 slump, it was reportedly shelved by Karan Johar. He’ll also reunite with Aditya Dhar in the mythological superhero film The Immortal Ashwatthama; in which Sara Ali Khan will play Ashwatthama. It’s the first instalment of a proposed trilogy backed by Ronnie Screwvala. He unveils his next endeavour, ‘Shubh Aarambh.’
