Vicky Kaushal reveals whether he would do more films in family-comedy genre in future 

During an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, Vicky Kaushal who played the lead role in the family-comedy film Zara Hatke Zara Bachke was asked whether he would like to build on that genre since the audience loved him in the “boy next door characters”. To this, the Sam Bahadur actor mentioned that he doesn't plan to work in a specific genre or have a particular goal within that genre at the moment. Instead, he reacts to scripts. 

When he receives a script and feels a connection, he thinks, 'This story is great, the role is wonderful, it's something different for me, it's new,' and he simply immerses himself in it. He said, “my approach is never ki mujhe ye genre me abhi na mujhe yahi genre karna hai ya isme mujhe aisa kuch karna hai. I react to a script, ki script aati hai mujhe connect karti hai, I feel ki yaar ye kahani achi thi, role pyaara tha, aisa kuch pehle nahi kiya hai, ye naya hai mere liye and I just dive into it.”


He further mentioned that he trusts his instinct and doesn't set specific goals like sticking to a particular genre or planning how much he'll do in it. He said, “I never say ki yaar yehi genre mein ab mujhe karte rehna hai ya itna isme karunga ya utna usme karunga. Mera dimaag waise chalta nahi hai, it’s too calculative. My instinct should tell me ki yaar this is a good story and you should be a part of it and I just dive into it.”
