‘Kisi Ko Kuch Asani Se Nahi Milta’: Vicky Kaushal On Nepotism And His Cinematic Journey

Nepotism has been one of the most pertinent issues plaguing Bollywood. Many actors in the industry have raised their voices and shared their experiences of not having a godfather in the industry to guide them. 

The viewers have a notion that the actors who have connections in the industry must have had it easy. When Vicky Kaushal stepped into the industry, people assumed that his father Sham Kaushal must have helped him crack his first role. He made his Bollywood debut with Masaan and has come a long way now.

I got a chance to interact with Vicky and we talked about how a lot of people had this impression that since he is Sham Kaushal’s son, he must have got it easy. However, it was revealed that Vicky had to work really hard for that one role. 

Explaining his stance, Vicky said, “Iss industry mein kisi ko asaani se kuch nahi milta chahe woh koi bhi ho. Apoorva, you have seen the industry now enough to know that’s true. I know it’s an outsider’s perspective ki sab networking se ho jata hai. Kisi se nahi hota hai. Apne mehnat se hota hai. Aaj kal if a filmmaker is a making a movie on a budget of a Rs 50 or 100 crore, he or she won’t spend the money on an actor who doesn’t know his or her job.” 

He went on to add, “Meri journey bhi waise thi jaise kisi aur hoti hai. Jaake dawaze knock karo and theatre karo. You have to keep giving auditions and you keep getting rejected too. If I have cracked 10 auditions, I have also failed around 500 auditions. Organically, things started to change. First I got a small part, then second lead and then lead actor role. Iss industry mein there is no trial and error. You have to prove your worth with every movie that you do.” 

Here’s my interview with the actor:

On the professional front, Vicky is basking in the success of his recently released film, Sardar Udham. In the film, Vicky Kaushal was seen as Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer, former lieutenant governor of Punjab, to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar in 1919. Udham Singh was tried and convicted of murder and hanged in July 1940.

Talking about playing the role of Sardar Udham Singh, he told us, “I didn’t have any dilemma when I said yes to doing this role because I was hungry for something like this. It’s always a win-win situation for the actor because it’s an opportunity of a lifetime to get the role of a freedom fighter and to relive the Indian freedom struggle. This is an opportunity I can take up with my eyes shut but yes, there was a massive sense of responsibility. Like you mentioned not many know of Sardar Udham Singh and there are many such unsung heroes in our freedom movement. The responsibility here is if people do like the film, this is how they are going to remember him. This is the story they will tell to generations ahead of them and this movie will become the face. That’s a big responsibility.” 

Directed by Shoojit Sircar, Sardar Udham also stars Shaun Scott, Stephen Hogan, Banita Sandhu, Kirsty Averton, and Amol Parashar. Have you watched the film yet? Let us know how you liked it in the comments below.
