Vicky Kaushal is certainly the talk of town with his blockbuster performances with films like Manmarziyaan, Raazi and most recently Uri: The Surgical Strike. And now; Vicky is gearing up for Karan Johar's magnum opus, Takht!


Speaking about his character in the film and if he had any reservations about play a charcter filled with shades of grey; the Masaan actor said," I'm really really excited for the process of Takht to start. It's going to be a character that's really going to demand a lot from me and that's what you live for as an actor. To see life from a different perspective."


He further added," It becomes very difficult to not judge that character, that's the hardest part to crack, changing your physicality, your language, this, that - you work towards it but mentally to just not judge the character and his actions and intentions and take him as he is and totally believe in it and to say that to yourself that "No, this is right". That's the trick and that's where you want to reach."


Resonating with his character in Raman Raghav; Vicky said," I had attempted something of that sort in Raman Raghav and that character is always something I feel like in every 5 years playing that sort of a grey, negative shade with the way I will mature in life, I would give a different shade to that character. It's the same with Aurangzeb, I'm really excited to really explore him."


For those living under the rock; Takht also features Ranveer Singh, the actor who has taken playing a negative character to another tangent all together, with his portrayal of Allauddin Khilji in Padmavat. On being asked if he feels threatened by Ranveer's presence in the film; Vicky was quick to deny anything as such!


He said," No, not at all. I know what the film is and I know how Aurangzeb is in the film. It's a completely different colour palette. If I take that approach, I'll only be kinda. It's like don't think of an elephant, you'll only end up thinking about an elephant, I'm a huge fan of this performance as Khilji, the way he played it unabashedly was absolutely mind blowing. That's the trait I want to use for Aurangzeb but on a very different character." 

 
Do let us know how excited you are too see the Vicky play the shades of grey!
