Change is inevitable,specially when you are hurled suddenly into the success zone. That’s what has happened with the very talented Vicky Kaushal who went suddenly from being 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-notch player, and he deserves every bit of the success. But there are murmurs of the actors having hiked his price unreasonably .
A director who has worked with Kaushal in the past and wants to cast him again says he doesn’t think he can afford it.
“I don’t think I can get the same actor for the same price. His market has changed. I don’t know whether he has changed. But he now hangs around with Karan Johar and his ilk. So I guess they advise him on how to move forward in life, And that’s a good thing. He deserves every bit of his success. But the change is visible. He even dresses differently.”
But does success have to change the newly-successful man’s priorities?
One hears Vicky Kaushal has broken ties with Harleen Sethi. The giddy romance made headlines when Vicky shouted his attraction to Ms Sethi from rooftops rating her his top-date, etc etc.
Now suddenly rumours in the industry insist the shortlived passion has evaporated all of a sudden.
Smirks a top-notch director, “Vicky now thinks he should be dating Katrina Kaif or Alia Bhatt. He is climbing up that ladder so fast he can’t see the ground below him.”
