Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal is promoting his upcoming movie The Great Indian Family in which he plays the role of a middle-class man. He, however, played a similar role in Zara Hatke Zara Bachke as well in June 2023. In terms of privilege, in a recent conversation, the actor was asked about whether actors often try to look relatable in order to avoid backlash from the audience.
Vicky Kaushal on ‘privileged’ actors trying to look relatable: “How long can you keep the pretence on?”
In a chat with Instant Bollywood, Vicky Kaushal said, “No, I don’t think so. I have many friends from the industry… Right now, the thing is that the audience can see through it. How long can you keep the pretence on? A day? Two days? Four weeks, a year? And it’s a very tiring process also.”
He added, “If you pretend to be someone you’re not, that’s what they hate. If you’re true to yourself, and that’s what you present, nobody will have (any complaints). That’s what I believe. That’s what I, as an audience member, always relate to. I don’t think about whether someone is actually middle class or not. If someone isn’t genuine, even if they’re a middle-class person, then you can’t relate with them.”
Vicky Kaushal’s upcoming theatrical release is a family entertainer, The Great Indian Family (TGIF). Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film is set to release on September 22, 2023.
