Sardar Udham’s actor Vicky Kaushal has gained massive fame from the movie Uri: The Surgical Strike, but did you know the actor has once rejected this movie. He played the role of Vihan Shergill and also received his first National Film Award for the film in 2019. However, he revealed the reason why he almost renounced the opportunity when he first read the script. The reason behind this was because he was in the middle of shooting Raazi. And due to his tiredness, he didn’t read the script carefully and missed the good parts of the story and couldn’t connect them.
Vicky said that it was only after his father, Sham Kaushal who found the script and read it. He then told Vicky that it would be the biggest mistake if he didn’t do it. So, the actor was asked to read it one more time. He then read again and felt it was right and rethought it.
The film Uri was directed by Aditya Dhar and is based on the surgical strike by the Indian Army at terrorist camps in Pakistan to retaliate the attack on an Army camp in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir. Along with Vicky Kaushal, the film also starred Yami Gautam and Mohit Raina in pivotal roles.
Hence, after the success of Uri: The Surgical Strike, there’s no stopping for the actor. And now he is again collaborating with Uri director Aditya Dhar and Mr Lele for a superhero action film The Immortal Ashwatthama.
