Vicky clarified his statement by pointing out how in the early days, a person is always unclear about which side they fall on. At the age when one makes their best friend and would want to spend as much time as possible with them to bond with them, their choices can cause some kind of confusion about who they're attracted to. Vicky Kaushal also talked about how the mindset of people nowadays has led to bigger closet space for people who are willing to step out of it.

He said that often the family of a closeted person keeps the news to themselves by claiming that it shouldn't be shared with the world. This leads to a bigger closet which is also a type of inhibition in itself.  Vicky Kaushal also said that he believes that it is beautiful to see people embracing their sexualities and being open and comfortable about it without the fear of being closeted by themselves.
