Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor is doing wonders on the box-office. The movie raked a good amount on its opening day and is rock steady at the box-office even after 6 days of its release.
Everyone is going gaga over the film, especially after Ranbir’s terrific performance. Sanju is a multi-starrer flick with some of the finest actors starring the movie and playing a pivotal role.
One of them is Raazi actor Vicky Kaushal. The actor is known for her versatility and has proved his mettle in acting in many movies before.
In Sanju, Vicky plays Ranbir Kapoor’s best friend Kamli. Vicky’s fabulous acting won him several accolades and we can imagine the actor must be on cloud nine for getting such a great response for his role.
The inspiration for Kamli primarily came from a person named Paresh Ghelani, who is Dutt’s close friend and is based in the US.
Vicky revealed, “I have met him [Paresh Ghelani]. He was in Mumbai for a while when we were shooting for the film. So, we hung out a bit. I’ve spoken to him many times but met him once, as I didn’t have to imbibe his personality traits because the personality is fictionalized. However, the incidents that happened between Paresh and Sanju are depicted in the film.”
Many well-known personalities from the film industry like Karan Johar, arun Dhawan, Arshad Warsi, Aamir Khan, Meghna Gulzar and Shabana Azmi among others have praised Vicky for his performance.
Ranbir too was left awestruck with Vicky’s acting. This couldn’t have made Vicky happier and he said, “Overwhelmed, humbled and feel truly blessed. Thank you for all the love! Feel so lucky to have got the chance to work with legends in this beautiful film. Learned a lot, grew a lot… not only as an artist but as a human being as well. So grateful.”
Sanju is a huge hit and the team members already celebrated the success of the film. However, Vicky had to give it a miss and what’s more surprising is that he has not even seen the film.
He said, “I’m in Serbia, shooting for my next film Uri since the past one month and here Bollywood films don’t get played. However, I’m overwhelmed by the reaction that the film is getting. It’s really heart-warming.”
Well, we hope Vicky soon gets some free time so that he can watch his own film!
