Shoojit Sircar’s film Sardar Udham won five National awards recently, and Allu Arjun won the Best Actor award for his performance in ‘Pushpa- The Rise‘. Talking about his film’s multiple wins, Vicky Kaushal recently told India Today, “Feels wonderful. Finally, after a long time, our film industry is getting all the love and all the films are working, which is great. Films of different genres are getting good responses. I think overall, for the ecosystem, hum sab ke liye, for the makers and the audience, it’s a very lovely environment, which is great.”
On not winning the Best Actor
The thing is that many times, when you get a film, and get to work with a director that you like, you think that’s where your dream has come true, which is genuinely true for Sadar Udham. I am not just saying for the heck of it. Being a Punjabi, that topic, that man, that story is very, very close to my heart.
He continued, “We have been listening to this story since our childhood days and always used to wonder why not many people know about this. So, for me, to eventually get the opportunity was a big deal and, after that, what I got or didn’t get, everything was a bonus. For me, the story to reach the world, to get appreciated, to get resonated, that is everything.”
The actor was last seen with Sara Ali Khan in Zara Hatke Zara Bachke and will be now seen in The Great Indian Family, which will release in theaters on September 22 and also stars Manushi Chhillar.
