Vicky Kaushal said that it was incredible meeting SRK, and added that there is a lot to learn from King Khan. Vicky said, “I knew that there was a lot to learn from him as an actor but what hit me was I actually got to know why he is where he is and why he is the Badshah. He was on set as if it was his first film.”
“When I meet him, I realise how little I’m doing at this age. He just gives his hundred percent. If he’s talking to you, hundred percent of his being is talking to you. He’s just something else,” he said.
Vicky Kaushal recalls why King Khan apologised to him during Dunki shoot
Recalling a moment on set, Vicky said, “On one of the shoot days, he had to rush to Delhi for a very important work and it couldn’t have happened at another time and another date. It was a very critical moment for my character in the film and it was with him. He just couldn’t be there for that shot and I had to give that shot with a body double. He got done with his work in Delhi and then he called me late in the night which I missed because there was an event.”
He continued, “He then sent me a long message saying, ‘Vicky, woh shot hum dobaara karenge. I’m really sorry that I couldn’t be there to give the cues.’ I had to call him and convince him that it went okay and Raju sir is happy with the shot. I was also nervous if I could pull off that shot again. But he insisted we do it because he was feeling terrible about not being able to give his shoulder in the shot. The next day he came on set and saw those shots and only after he was happy with them did he decide that we don’t need to reshoot them.”
Dunki is a comedy-drama film directed by Rajkumar Hirani. The film also stars Taapsee Pannu and Boman Irani.
