Bollywood’s most sought-after heartthrob Vicky Kaushal, who came to limelight with his terrific performance in ‘Masaan’, turns 30 today. The actor not only managed to woo critics and audience alike with his debut film ‘Masaan’, but also won an award in the International Indian Film Academy Awards in the category of Best Male Debut. Kaushal has not done many films but every film that he has been a part of is worth a watch. From Masaan, Zubaan to Raman Raghav 2.0 and Raazi, Kaushal left no stone unturned to impress his audience and critics with his versatility and a wide choice of films
Kaushal has learned the hard way and his foundation as an actor is very solid. Kaushal is a promising actor and the proof is that the filmmakers are even considering Kaushal to play the character with diverse shades like the one in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’, especially after watching films like ‘Masaan’ and ‘Zubaan’, where the actor has played the role of a simple boy. But aren’t we glad that filmmakers wish to experiment with him by offering him roles we can’t even imagine him doing? And as usual, the actor surprises us every time with his skillful acting.
One of the film critics had said, when Kaushal plays a role, there isn’t a moment in the film when Kaushal appears to be acting. I got to agree, what do you say? I believe, even if Kaushal had no dialogue in his film, he will still nail it as his expressive eyes and innocent cute smile are more than enough as it worth thousand words.
If you have not watched any of these below-mentioned films, then you definitely got to make room in your schedule. And I am not even kidding, you must watch them. Here you go, BINGE-WATCH them today.
