Vicky Kaushal finds his Raazi co-star, Alia Bhatt, to be real — both as a human being and a performer on screen. Being a huge admirer of Alia’s work, the actor says that he enjoys watching her on screen.
“When I saw Udta Punjab (2016), I was blown away by her (Alia’s) performance. On the script level, if anybody would have told me that the role is being played by Alia, I would have been like, ‘I don’t know, can’t connect the dots’. But when I saw the film, I felt no one else could play the part the way Alia did. That’s the magic of an actor,” says Vicky, who can’t stop gushing about Alia’s performance.
“The power she holds as a performer can’t be expressed. There is a lot of honesty in her eyes that comes across whenever she is playing a particular character. So, when someone like her is your co-star, it helps in many ways,” adds the actor, who has been a part of films such as Masaan (2015), Zubaan (2016), Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016), and Love Per Square Foot.
About his experience of teaming up with Alia in Meghna Gulzar’s film, Vicky shares that they have developed a bond. The fun time they had shooting the film is something the 30-year-old actor says he would always cherish. Ask him that one thing about Alia that not many would know and Vicky laughs. “She is the most accident-prone human being I have ever known. On the set, whenever you hear someone hurting herself, it has to be her. She would keep on banging her knee against the bed or her toe somewhere,” he shares.
Recounting yet another funny incident from the sets, Vicky reveals that every time Alia would hold the gun, everyone would get worried. “There are many instances in the film where she is holding a gun, so every time she was holding one, the person who is in front of the gun is not scared but everybody else used to get worried that she might end up hurting herself. Yes, she would hurt herself just by holding the gun,” he says.
