The actor-previous director's collaboration, Uri: The Surgical Strike, was a huge success. However, Vicky Kaushal's Ashwathama, which was put on hold after being announced in October 2020, remains on hold.
Vicky stated that they are waiting for a better time to shoot, when they will not have to worry about COVID and will be able to shoot the film all over the world. It is a film that requires the presence of a 300-person crew, which is currently a bit of a nightmare. As a result, it is critical that they do it justice. It has not been shelved, but rather pushed.
With Uri having swept him into the spotlight, Kaushal says he will judge any future offering based on two criteria. He makes sure that he is not repeating a previous act with the film. He also examines how the script affects him when he reads it for the first time.
Following that, he concentrates on who the director is and how he intends to tell the story. Once that is determined, he simply dives in headfirst and tries to enjoy the experience.
On the work front, Vicky Kaushal was seen in the recently released film Sardar Udham. The film was made available on the OTT platform. However, after researching box-office trends, Vicky claims that this is not typical, and he has never taken box-office pressure seriously.
He is certainly interested in how many people come to see the film because it is an indication of how well the film is doing and the producers must recoup the funds. However, it is not something that bothers him. Every film has its own destiny, and it is rewarded when people connect with it.
