Vicky Kaushal On His Favourite Anurag Kashyap
No doubt Anurag Kashyap is a director to look out for with his movies always of a different genre. Vicky Kaushal, the current hit star in the B-town, shares a special rapport with Anurag. On a recent interview, the actor revealed that Anurag always brings out the best out in him and that he got to work with Kashyap every 3 years to shed all his dead cells as an actor.
On his appearance on the showKoffee with Karan, the host asked him to choose between directors Rajkumar Hirani, Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap. And guess what? Vicky immediately opted for his favourite: Kashyap. He revealed, “I am able to explore a new side of me every time I work with Anurag. In fact, I want to work with him every three years, because with him, I shed all my dead cells as an actor and that keeps me going for another three years. He brings out a new side of me as an artiste. And it happens organically.
The Raazi actor further added, “Yeah, he knows my pulse as a person, but it hasn’t been a disadvantage so far. He knows what I am thinking, he tells me what to think, but never directs me in a scene. And he leaves it to me and he knows what I can do; he knows my true potential. He has seen me grow and got me into the industry. I had led a protected childhood. The first time I travelled independently as an adult was as Anurag’s assistant for ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’. That trip to Banaras changed the course of my life.”
The Uri actor had worked as Anurag’s assistant in Gangs of Wasseypur. The duo also has worked in the films Manmarziyan and Raman Raghav 2.0.
