Vicky Kaushal compared to Leonardo DiCaprio for doing a scene phenomenally in Manmarziyaan; The actor responds
Amid the lockdown, social media is being used as a medium to spread messages thereby making people aware of the dangers of this deadly virus and the precautionary measures that can be followed to avoid it. Everyone has been spending their time at home and making the best use of this quarantine period. Talking about Vicky Kaushal, the actor is spending his quarantine period with his brother Sunny Kaushal at home. From flipping eggs to turning a hairstylist, the Kaushal brothers are giving major sibling goals.
Recently, a Twitter user Pramit Chatterjee compared Vicky to Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Sharing a few clips from a scene of his film Manmarziyaan, the user wrote, "Did @vickykaushal09 cut his cheek with the saucepan while shooting this scene cuz it does bounce off & hit exactly where he’s bleeding, @anuragkashyap72? If yes, then this is some Leonardo-Dicaprio-cutting-his-hand-in-Django-Unchained-&-not-breaking-character-levels-of-acting." To this, Vicky replied, "I didn’t realise it while doing the scene, but glad that @anuragkashyap72 didn’t say ‘cut’."
For the uninitiated, in Django Unchained, Leonardo breaks a glass in his hands but continues filming for the scene in spite of bleeding. He even smeared his blood all over Kerry Washington’s face in the scene.
