When Vicky Kaushal spoke about his initial hustle 

Before finding his footing in the industry, Vicky Kaushal had to go through his fair share of struggles. In a conversation with Film Companion, the actor recalled leaving his house at 11 am only to return after late evening. He shared, “I knew of certain few places where auditions happened, where were some ad agency offices, where were the offices of casting directors and filmmakers. I didn’t know what I would do but I knew that I would just go, meet people, tell them, ‘I want to act’ and give auditions. I was sure I wouldn’t just sit at home because I knew that was not how I would get work.”

He then recalled the times when he would get demotivated or disheartened by rejection. He remembered words by his mother giving him ‘power’. He added his mother told him, “It’s not your job to know how it’s going to happen. Your job is to have faith that it’s going to happen. The ‘how’ part of it.don’t try to become God. You can plan it but don’t kill yourself over it.”  Vicky admitted that the one line said by his mother was enough of a motivation for him.

Vicky Kaushal’s father- Sam Kaushal worked as an action director in Bollywood. In the same conversation, the Raazi actor shared, “One thing that my dad told me was not to come with Plan B. It is different for different people, but it works for me. When I know there is no safety net, I jump a little bit more far. It gives me power.” Vicky will be seen next in Chhaava, Love And War and Bad News.
