As most know, Vicky played his first prominent leading role in Masaan. He went on to be a part of some celebrated films like Raman Raghav 2.0, Raazi and Lust Stories.

But Vicky Kaushal initially thought of rejecting the script. He revealed it all at Film Companion’s Front Row chat as he shared, “Uri was something I was gonna skip. In the middle of shooting Raazi, I read the film, maybe I was tired, I went to work next day not feeling connected to it.”
Vicky Kaushal revealed that it was his dad Sham Kaushal who made him reconsider it! He continued, “My dad found the script & read it. He told me it will be the biggest mistake if I didn’t do it. I asked for more time. Read the script again. And got really excited to do it.”
