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.”
