Vicky Kaushal is one of the busiest bees of the Hindi film industry this year. He is currently flying high on the success of his last release Uri: The Surgical Strike for which he won the National Film Award for Best Actor. Directed by Aditya Dhar and produced by Ronnie Screwvala, the military action film is a dramatized account of the retaliation to the 2016 Uri attack.

The actor is now gearing up for his upcoming films and has some interesting scripts in his kitty. Vicky will be seen playing the titular role in Sardar Udham Singh, based on the life of the freedom fighter and he will also be seen essaying the character of Aurangzeb in Karan Johar's Takht. Opening about the films, he said, “With a director like Shoojit Sircar, you have to trust his instinct and vision. While he comes to the set well-prepared, he also leaves a lot to his impulse. You have to be with him to pick that up.”

Vicky went on to add, “Also, for the character of Udham Singh, I have to understand the era, the thought process of the man and what it would have been like to witness a massacre like the Jallianwala Bagh tragedy. As for Takht, I had this crazy urge to play a bad guy, an out-and-out black character. When Karan offered me the role, I was game because with this I had a chance to tick off another box on my wishlist. It’s a cool coincidence that I am playing two characters that are so different within a short span of time.”
