Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal recently spoke about the profound life lessons he received from his father, renowned stunt director Sham Kaushal. In a candid interview with We Are Yuvaa, Vicky discussed his father’s teachings on masculinity, emotional expression, and resilience, highlighting the importance of embracing one’s emotions.
Recalling a heartfelt incident from his childhood, Vicky shared how his father, Sham Kaushal, openly expressed his emotions, even crying in front of his sons when he felt upset. This unique approach to masculinity left a lasting impact on Vicky and his brother Sunny, instilling in them the idea that vulnerability and emotional authenticity are essential aspects of being strong.
Vicky reflected on an incident when his father faced humiliation on a film set, stating, “He has tried to make us strong, emotionally. He would openly tell us, ‘I felt humiliated on set today, and I came back and I cried to your mom.’ He would say that to us when we were children. And mom would tell us this, that one time this had happened, that had happened, and some senior had scolded him in front of the whole set when he was just a stuntman. And he came back home and cried. So, this was never hidden from us. And he has cried in front of us.”
Sham Kaushal also imparted a valuable life lesson to his sons, emphasizing that not everything would go in their favor all the time. He acknowledged the inevitable challenges in life and encouraged his children to develop resilience and face adversity head-on.
Throughout his illustrious career, Sham Kaushal has contributed to several blockbuster films, including “Dangal,” “Bajirao Mastani,” “Padmaavat,” and “Krrish 3,” among others, with his exceptional work as a stunt director.
Currently, Vicky Kaushal is actively promoting his forthcoming family entertainer, “The Great Indian Family,” in which he stars alongside Manushi Chillar in the lead role. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film is scheduled to hit theaters on September 22. Speaking about his involvement in a family-oriented project, Vicky expressed his excitement, saying, “I remember when I was growing up, some of my favorite memories were about us as a family going to a theater and watching a film that we all could enjoy together. It was just a lovely experience, an unforgettable one.”
In addition to “The Great Indian Family,” Vicky Kaushal has an array of exciting projects in his pipeline. He is set to portray the legendary Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in director Meghna Gulzar’s next project, “Sam Bahadur.” Additionally, he will star in director Anand Tiwari’s upcoming untitled film opposite actors Tripti Dimri and Ammy Virk, which is scheduled for release on February 23, 2024.
