In the recent episode of Into The Wild with Bear Grylls, Vicky talked about his humble family background and said that he grew up in a 10×10 house without a separate kitchen or bathroom. “I was born there. “And beyond that, it was my family’s journey.” The actor had also said that he and his family have seen every step of the stairs.
