Vicky Kaushal’s work front
Actor Vicky Kaushal recently shared the screen with actress Sara Ali Khan in the romantic comedy Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, depicting the challenges faced by a small-town couple in their quest for privacy. Despite initial expectations, the film turned out to be a commercial success. Kaushal then embraced another small-town role in the family film The Great Indian Family, relishing the experience of portraying middle-class aspirations and simplicity, although it had a modest box-office collection.
In his second collaboration with Meghna Gulzar, Kaushal is set to embody the role of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in the upcoming biopic Sam Bahadur. Additionally, he will grace the screen in filmmaker Anand Tiwari's romantic comedy Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam, where he'll share the spotlight with actress Tripti Dimri.
