Dubai, March 20 (IANS) Actor Vicky Kaushal, who shot to fame with the film “Masaan”, says he gets entertained by commercial cinema and is looking forward to be working in them.
Asked if he would like to work in commercial Hindi films, Vicky told reporters at the TOIFA’s red carpet here on Friday: “Of course (I want to do commerdial films). I feel as an actor it’s my duty to cater to every kind of audience and ‘Masaan’ and ‘Zubaan’ were films that happened to me, the films that chose me…Obviously, I would want to do that (commercial films).”
The actor, who was seen onscreen in “Zubaan”, a musical drama film by Mozez Singh, which also featured actress Sarah Jane Dias, says he is looking forward to working in commercial cinema.
“I have been brought up watching those films and I myself get entertained by those films. So, definitely looking forward to them,” added the actor.
Vicky has two more films in his kitty, which are yet to be released.
“My next is Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Raman Raghav’ co-starring Nawaz Siddiqui, and after that I would start shooting for ‘Manmarziyaan’,” he said.
“Manmarziyaan” also stars one-film-old actress Bhumi Pednekar, who won the Best Debut Actress (Female) at the event here, and actor Ayushmann Khurrana.
Talking about his co-stars, Vicky said: “I am a Punjabi, so is Ayushmann, so we connect then and there and Bhumi is just fantastic. I think they both are fabulous. They were great in ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’…Bhumi is just fabulous and has great energy.”
