Vicky Kaushal recently delved into his acting journey, pinpointing what he considers his most challenging performance to date in Anurag Kashyap’s “Raman Raghav 2.0.” The actor shared insights into why he views it as his weakest portrayal, citing a lack of life experience at the time.
Speaking at an Indian Express event, Vicky expressed, “Raman Raghav 2.0 was a very dark and twisted tale about a cop and a serial killer. To be very honest, I still feel that is my worst performance to date because, at that time, I felt like I hadn’t lived through life experiences to get into the skin of the character.” He added candidly, “That is one role, and I feel that every five years of my life, I will play it differently and I will play it better.”
Acknowledging the disparity between his protective upbringing and the character’s life, Vicky, who was 25 when he played the part, recognized the gap he needed to fill to fully understand and embody the role.
In the same conversation, Vicky opened up about his journey as an actor, describing himself as a stubborn individual. He recalled moments when he faced skepticism during auditions, which only fueled his determination to become an actor. Despite lacking confidence initially due to the prevalent trend of star launches, he asserted that his persistence and love for acting eventually led to a shift in the industry.
Looking ahead, Vicky Kaushal is set to portray Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in Meghna Gulzar’s “Sam Bahadur,” scheduled for release on December 1. The film also features Sanya Malhotra as Sam Manekshaw’s wife, Silloo, and Fatima Sana Shaikh as former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, backed by RSVP Movies.
