Change is inevitable,specially when you are hurled suddenlyÂ into theÂ success zone. ThatâsÂ whatÂ has happened with the very talented Vicky Kaushal who wentÂ suddenlyÂ from beingÂ the first choice in heroine-oriented films like Masaan and Raazi to a 250-crore worth (and still counting) hero in Uri.
Suddenly Kaushal has become a top-notchÂ player, and he deserves every bit ofÂ the success. ButÂ there are murmursÂ of the actorsÂ having hiked his price unreasonably .
A director who has worked with Kaushal in the pastÂ and wants to cast him again says he doesnât think he can afford it.
âI donât think I can getÂ the same actor for the sameÂ price. His market has changed. IÂ donâtÂ know whether he has changed. But heÂ now hangs around with Karan Johar and his ilk. So I guess they advise him onÂ how to move forward in life, AndÂ thatâs a good thing. He deservesÂ everyÂ bit of his success. But the changeÂ is visible. He even dressesÂ differently.â
But doesÂ successÂ have to change the newly-successful manâs priorities?
One hears Vicky KaushalÂ has broken ties with Harleen Sethi. TheÂ giddy romanceÂ made headlines when VickyÂ shouted hisÂ attraction to Ms Sethi fromÂ rooftops rating herÂ his top-date, etc etc.
Now suddenlyÂ rumoursÂ inÂ the industry insist theÂ shortlivedÂ passion has evaporatedÂ all of a sudden.
Smirks a top-notch director, âVicky now thinks he should be dating KatrinaÂ Kaif or Alia Bhatt. He is climbing up that ladder so fast he canât see the ground below him.â
