Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal who has touched the heights of success with his film 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' was recently called out by an internet user in relation to the nepotism debate. The actor whose father Sham Kaushal is a director was pointed out as a product of nepotism and was said he has no quality of a being a hero.
In a recent interview, Vicky was asked to react to some of the comments about him on social media, in which one of the trolls said that Vicky does not have a 'hero face' and he was in films, because of his background in the industry. The actor who seems to be a pro when it comes to dealing with criticism responded to the post saying, that he agrees to the fact that he doesn't look like a stereotypical hero but he has made his place in the industry completely by his hard work.
The actor said that his father never wanted him to be an actor but finally, when he took the decision of joining the film industry, his father clarified that he will support him as a father but he will enjoy no favours in work and will have to struggle his own way up.
Reacting to the nepotism track, he invited the naysayer to Bollywood and asked him to try and survive a week. Then the actor said he will discuss the issue with him over a cup of coffee.
Talking about his film 'Uri', Vicky said he is overwhelmed with the response of the audiance. He said, not only him but the entire team has put their best in to shape the project. Defying all the allegations against the film of it being a propaganda project, he said, it is not always necessary to see everything under a political lens. He further clarified that the sole intent of the film is to pay tribute to the Indian Army and if it would have been any kind of propaganda film he wouldn't have been a part of it.
'Uri: The Surgical Strike' that released on January 11, 2019, is based on the September 2016 attack by Pakistani terrorists on the Indian Army brigade HQ in Uri, J&K and subsequent Surgical Strike by Indian security forces on terror launchpads in Pakistan. The film stars Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam, Kirti Kulhari, and Mohit Raina in the lead.
It features Vicky as an Indian soldier who leads the army for the mission. The film has received great reviews from the audience and critics as they have praised the film for its patriotic zeal. It is written and directed by debutant Aditya Dhar and produced by Ronnie Screwvala under his banner RSVP Movies.
