Vicky on The Great Indian Family
The family drama, written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya of Dhoom 3 fame, revolves around Vicky Kaushal's character Bhajan Kumar, and his identity crisis, when a letter claims he was born a Muslim.
"It is a celebration of our family values, our diversity. It is all said in a way, which is not like where we are trying to teach or preach you something. It is said in a way that is entertaining. It will make you laugh, it will make you feel good about being part of the Indian family and culture," Vicky had told PTI ahead of the film's release.
Vicky, who is known for films such as Masaan, Uri: The Surgical Strike and Sardar Udham, also spoke about his recent film choices in the same interview. The Great Indian Family is his second family entertainer of the year after Zara Hatke Zara Bachke alongside Sara Ali Khan. Before that he was seen in Govinda Naam Mera (2022) with Kiara Advani and Bhumi Pednekar.
He said, “These films were not done with the mindset that, 'Oh, I need to break a certain kind of an image and build a certain kind of image'. It is more of a decision from the heart. I heard the story, it stayed with me, and I wanted to be part of it.”
