Actor Vicky Kaushal is one of the most popular young actors today. After the success of Uri: The Surgical Strike, he rose to fame like never before and bagged some really interesting projects. However, things were not so happy always. In his latest interview with News18, the actor revealed that there was a time when he used to tell the filmmakers that he was ready to pay them for casting him in their films. Vicky said he was so desperate to get work in those days that he even thought about the possibility of lack of money behind not casting him in films.

The actor explained how he used to ask about the budget of the film from the makers after being rejected in auditions. Vicky revealed that after a point, he started contemplating the idea of giving some money to the makers to hire him because he felt that the directors were rejecting him even when he was offering to work for free.

Vicky was quoted saying, “I just wanted work and do good acting. I would always get selected in the top 2 or 3 during auditions, but they would reject me after asking my budget. I would think that ‘maybe, they have rejected me because of my budget.’ So then, I started asking them their budget. When I said I would do in their budget, they would still reject me. Then I said I would work for free (laughs), they would still not take me. At last, I had to say that I would pay but give me work.” Also Read - MLA Manjinder Sirsa Accuses Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal And Others of Taking Drugs at Karan Johar's Party
