Turning into a national crush overnight with Meghna Gulzar-directorial Raazi, Bollywood hunk Vicky Kaushal is now gearing up for Dharma Production’s Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. Speaking at an event ahead of the horror flick’s release, Vicky opened up about his biggest fear.
As per a report in PTI, Vicky shared, “I have this fear, that one fine day I’ll get up and I won’t know how to act. I wonder what I will do. But I fear that one day I’ll go on set and for no logical reason, I wouldn’t know what to do after action. I’ve this strange, imagined fear.”
Moving on to elaborate upon the scariest thing about stardom, Vicky said, “Stardom gets scary when it goes into your head and under your feet. When stardom gets in your head, a gap develops between your feet and the ground… When you wake up in the morning with your mother scolding you, you become normal. I stay with my family, have some beautiful set of friends who aren’t from the industry. They’re proud of my journey and for them I’m still the old Vicky Kaushal of college.”
Debutant Bhanu Pratap Singh’s Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship is produced by Karan Johar under his home banner. Vicky plays the role of a servicing officer who has been assigned to examine a stranded ‘haunted’ ship that has appeared at the coast of Mumbai from nowhere. The moment he steps inside the ship, strange things start happening to him. Vicky’s character gets stranded inside the ship as the ghost of a kid tries to kill him. In one of the scariest scenes, the ghost of the girl is seen walking upside down on the ceiling of the room.
The film features Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar in important roles and the trailer suggests a lot more mystery and spookiness than expected. Apart from this, Vicky has Takht with Karan Johar. After wrapping up Takht, the actor will reunite with his Uri director – Aditya Dhar for his next titled The Immortal Ashwatthama.
