Life and careerEdit

Early life and work (1988–2016)Edit

Kaushal was born on 16 May 1988 in a chawl in suburban Mumbai to Sham Kaushal, a stuntman and subsequent action director in Hindi films & Veena Kaushal.[1][2][3] His younger brother, Sunny, is also an actor.[4] His family is Punjabi.[5] Kaushal has described himself as a "regular kid who was interested in studying, playing cricket and watching movies".[2] His parents were keen on their son having a stable career and thus, Kaushal pursued an engineering degree in electronics and telecommunications from Mumbai's Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology.[6] During an industrial visit to an IT company, he realised that an office job would be unsuitable for him and began aspiring to have a career in film. He briefly took on an engineering job and began accompanying his father to film sets.[2][6]

He studied acting at Kishore Namit Kapoor's academy and worked as an assistant director to Anurag Kashyap in the two-part crime drama Gangs of Wasseypur (2012).[6][7] Kaushal has described fond memories of working with Kashyap, whom he considers as his mentor.[8] He also began working on stage with his first acting job in Manav Kaul's production of Laal Pencil.[6] In film, Kaushal played minor roles in Kashyap's productions Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012) and Bombay Velvet (2015), and the experimental short film Geek Out (2013).[6][9]

 
Kaushal and Shweta Tripathi, his co-star in Masaan (2015)

Kaushal played his first leading role in the independent drama Masaan (2015), directed by Neeraj Ghaywan. Kaushal and Ghaywan were both assistants on Gangs of Wasseypur, and he was cast in the film after Rajkummar Rao backed out.[10] To play a young man from a low socio-economic class yearning for a better life, Kaushal spent time in Benaras, where the film is set, and observed the mannerisms of local men.[11] The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard segment at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, where it won two awards, including the FIPRESCI Prize.[12] Masaan earned critical acclaim and The New York Times considered it to be a leading example of increased realism in Indian cinema.[13][14] Nikhil Taneja of HuffPost termed Kaushal's performance "poignant and memorable" and Anuj Kumar of The Hindu wrote that "he effortlessly conveys both the inferiority complex and the attitude of breaking through the caste cauldron".[15][16] His performance won him the IIFA and Screen Awards for Best Male Debut, and a nomination for the Asian Film Award for Best Newcomer, among other accolades.[17][18][19]

The 2015 Busan International Film Festival marked the release of the drama Zubaan, which Kaushal had filmed before Masaan.[5] His role was that of a grieving man who starts stammering after the death of his father. He worked with a speech therapist to learn stammering patterns and spent time with some of the doctor's patients. After completing work on the film, Kaushal found it difficult to distance from the character and began to stammer in real life.[11] His performance led Justin Chang of Variety to label him as a "charismatic, naturally engaging talent".[20] In Kashyap's psychological thriller Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016), Kaushal played a drug-addicted police officer in pursuit of the serial killer Raman Raghav (portrayed by Nawazuddin Siddiqui).[5] The troubled and unbalanced character had little in common with Kaushal's own personality, and to convince Kashyap to cast him, he lived in isolation for five days and kept repeating lines from the script.[8] Writing for Rediff.com, Aseem Chhabra found his performance "brave" and added, "If there is one big surprise in Raman Raghav 2.0, it is Vicky Kaushal’s star-making performance."[21] Both Zubaan and Raman Raghav 2.0 failed to find a wide audience at the box office.[22]

Breakthrough (2018–present)Edit

Kaushal achieved his breakthrough in 2018.[23] He was first seen as the male lead of the romantic comedy Love per Square Foot, India's first Netflix original film.[24] Shweta Ramakrishnan of Firstpost considered the chemistry between Kaushal and his co-star Angira Dhar to be the film's highlight.[25] He next featured in Meghna Gulzar's spy thriller Raazi (2018), based on Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat. Set during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, the film tells the real-life story of a young Indian girl from Kashmir (played by Alia Bhatt) who marries a Pakistani army officer (Kaushal) to spy for Indian intelligence. He was drawn to the humanity he found in the story and worked towards conveying both vulnerability and authoritative strength in his character.[26] The film emerged as one of the highest-grossing Hindi films featuring a female protagonist and Meena Iyer of Daily News and Analysis commended Kaushal for being "the correct foil" to Bhatt's character.[27][28] His second Netflix production of the year was the anthology film Lust Stories. It consists of four short films dealing with female sexuality; Kaushal was seen in Karan Johar's segment as a newly married man who fails to recognise his wife's (played by Kiara Advani) sexual dissatisfaction.[29]

Kaushal's most commercially successful release of 2018 came with Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju, a biopic of the troubled actor Sanjay Dutt, who was portrayed by Ranbir Kapoor in the film. Kaushal played his best friend Kamli, a fictionalised amalgamation of various real-life friends of Dutt.[30] In preparation, he spent time with Paresh Ghelani, who served as the primary inspiration for the role.[30] Rachit Gupta from The Times of India considered Kaushal's work to be "one of the finest performances in the film" and Samrudhi Ghosh of India Today wrote that he "holds his own against Ranbir’s superlative performance, and shines in the funny as well as emotional scenes".[31][32] Both Raazi and Sanju proved to be among the highest-grossing Hindi films of 2018, and with earnings of over 5.79 billion (US$77 million), the latter ranks among Indian cinema's biggest grossers.[33][34] In his final release of the year, Kaushal reunited with Kashyap for Manmarziyaan, a love triangle set in Punjab and co-starring Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu.[35] Anupama Chopra took note of how well he used silences to convey his character's pain and desire.[36] For Sanju, Kaushal won the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor (tied with Gajraj Rao for Badhaai Ho).[37]

In 2019, Kaushal starred as a military officer in Uri: The Surgical Strike, an action film based on the 2016 Uri attack, directed by Aditya Dhar and filmed in Serbia. To prepare, he gained muscle weight, practised a ketogenic diet, and underwent five months of military training and mixed martial arts sessions.[38][39] He injured his arm while filming an action sequence in it.[40] Uday Bhatia of Mint found Kaushal to be a "fetching stoic lead" but bemoaned the lack of depth in his character.[41] Rajeev Masand took note of the film's jingoism and criticised the over-the-top characterisations, but opined that Kaushal "brings both the bulked-up physicality and the sort of steely determination that the part requires".[42] Uri earned 2.4 billion (US$32 million) in India, and over 3.5 billion (US$46 million) worldwide, making it the tenth highest-grossing Indian film domestically.[43][44] Kaushal was awarded with the National Film Award for Best Actor (shared with Ayushmann Khurrana for Andhadhun) and received a Filmfare Award for Best Actor nomination.[45]

A year later, Kaushal featured in the horror film Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship (2020), produced by Karan Johar.[46] He suffered an accident during the filming of an action sequence when he fractured his cheekbone.[47] Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV found Kaushal to be "earnest" in a film he considered to be a "horrific misfire".[48] Vicky has played Sardar Udham Singh in the movie Sardar Udham which has released on Amazon Prime Video on 16th October 2021. The movie is directed by Shoojit Sircar. It is based on the life of Sardar Udham Singh, a revolutionary freedom fighter best known for assassinating Michael O'Dwyer in London to take revenge for 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar.

Upcoming projectsEdit

Vicky has also completed shooting on Vijay Krishna Acharya's family comedy drama, The Great Indian Family, with Manushi Chhillar.[49] As of March 2021, he is filming for Shashank Khaitan's comical spy film Mr. Lele, where he is the titular character alongside Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani.[50]

In June 2019, Kaushal announced his second collaboration with Gulzar, the war drama Sam Bahadur where he will essay Field marshal Sam Manekshaw.[51] On 1 February 2020, the teaser of his period drama Takht was released. The film has an ensemble cast[52][53] and was to release in March 2020 but was delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic. It was then reportedly shelved by Karan Johar due to the COVID-19 recession.[54] He is additionally set to reteam with Angira Dhar in the mythological based superhero movie The Immortal Ashwatthama opposite Sara Ali Khan portraying Ashwatthama.[55] It is a planned trilogy backed by Ronnie Screwvala.[56][57]He announces ‘Shubh Aarambh’ of his next project.[58]

MediaEdit

Kaushal topped The Times of India's listing of the country's most desirable men of 2018,[59] he was ranked at No. 4 in 2019[60] as well as 2020.[61]

Forbes India featured him in their 30 Under 30 list of 2018.[62] The following year, he appeared in the magazine's Celebrity 100 list, ranking 72nd with an estimated annual income of 104.2 million (US$1.4 million).[63]

Kaushal also endorses several brands and products, including Havells, Reliance Trends, and Oppo, charging 2 crore (US$270,000)—3 crore (US$400,000) annually per brand.[64]

Kaushal contributed ₹1 crore to the PM CARES Fund and Maharashtra Chief Minister's Relief Fund due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India.[65][66]
