It was always my dream to work with Karan Johar: Vicky Kaushal

Vastavam web: Vicky Kaushal is excited for the release of his upcoming film “Raazi” and says it was always his dream to work with filmmaker Karan Johar.
The 29-year-old actor will be seen opposite Alia Bhatt in Karan’s home production “Raazi”. He will also be seen in the director’s segment in the sequel to 2013 Indian anthology film “Bombay Talkies”, alongside Kiara Advani and Neha Dhupia.”Raazi”, a film adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel “Calling Sehmat”, is about an Indian spy (Alia) married to a Pakistani military officer (Vicky) during the Indo-Pak War of 1971. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the film will release on May 11.

Vicky was speaking at the 19th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards voting weekend yesterday.His other two releases this year would be Rajkumar Hirani’s “Sanju” and Anurag Kashyap-directed “Manmarziyaan”. “We got 30 million hits for the teaser and it is trending in India, the US and other countries. I was with Raju sir yesterday for dubbing (of the film) and we all very excited.

“It is a special story of a special person. I can’t talk about the film and my role at the moment. Once the trailer is out, you will see other actors as well,” he said.When asked if he thinks 2018 is going to be his best year, Vicky said, he has kept his fingers crossed.The actor is happy to be a part of IIFA for the second time. “My favourite memory of IIFA is when I received an award for best debut actor for ‘Masaan’ in 2016,” he said.He will be seen next in Sajid Khan’s “Housefull 4”, but he was unwilling to share details about the film.

When asked if the film is being made in 3D this time, Riteish said, “I think producer Sajid Nandiadwala and director Sajid Khan are the right people to talk about it. There are lot of exciting and new things happening. We are happy about it.” Though Neha is ecstatic about being part of IIFA, the actor said she is nervous about walking the green carpet.”I love clothes. I prefer wearing something that is comfortable. Mix your sensibility with clothes and comfort as one has to watch the function for about a few hours,” she added.
