Taking a trip down memory lane, the famous actor asserted, “This dates back to 2010 when I wanted to be an actor and Neeraj Ghaywan wanted to pursue direction. We both started our journey together as assistant directors Gangs of Wasseypur. So post that I started doing theater to improve my acting skills. In 2013, we met again while traveling in Pune and started talking about life and work.”
“During the conversation, I learned that he is making a film and is looking for a producer, but is struggling with it. He then shared that he did a pilot promo of the film with Rajkummar Rao. Due to of Masaan limited budget, they couldn’t create a mela, but had to wait to shoot a real one.”
The URI The actor further explained, “The melas in Benaras usually happen in October and there were some issues with Raj’s appointments, so there was a vacancy for this role, and I immediately jumped into it. After auditioning, I was finally cast in this role.”
Interestingly, Vicky also recalled how while shooting a scene, she actually started crying, “In the ‘Yeh dukh kaahe khatam na hota be’ scene, I cried a lot. I wasn’t supposed to cry, but somehow I ended up crying and crying. Also, I had to act drunk for the scene, so to make it look natural, I got drunk for the first time in my life. I knew it was an intense scene and I had to give my best.”
The Raazi The actor continued and said, “Well, the scene ended and in the background, there was a bridge on which a train was leaving, I heard the horn and automatically said ‘Tu kisi rail si guzarti hai … main kisi pul sa thartharaata hoon’. As soon as I finished the sentence, I couldn’t hold back my tears.”
He went on to say, “It felt so natural that Neeraj said we should keep this scene. After the film was shot, the entire crew left, only Neeraj, Avinash (the DOP) and I remained.
