Vicky Kaushal won the National Film Award in the category of Best Actor for Aditya Dhar’s directorial venture Uri: The Surgical Strike. The film was based on the surgical strike which was carried out by the Indian Army in 2016.
Vicky shared the award with actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who received it for his performance in the Sriram Raghavan film Andhadhun.
At India Today Conclave 2019, Vicky had shared how he reacted after his name was announced in the winner’s list.
“It was surprising to me. I was at a look test for my upcoming film. I was watching the press conference live. Before my name was announced, three other awards that Uri got where announced, and I was jumping and jumping. And when my name was announced, I was like ‘Hein?’ So I was really surprised. Since I was at a look test, ten minutes after the announcement, I had to wear a head mask on my face and had to stay still for 45 minutes,” Vicky had said.
“This was the time when I wanted to dance with the world, but I couldn’t communicate anything. So, I called my co-winner Ayushmann Khurrana and my parents and just sat there,” the Uri actor added.
On the work front, Vicky Kaushal will now be seen in films Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship and Sardar Udham Singh. Soon, he will begin work on Karan Johar’s Takht.
