Did you know Vicky Kaushal was in Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur? Tap to read!

Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur series was a huge hit. It’s been nine years since the film released but it is still has a huge fan following. But did you know before Masaan was released in 2015, Vicky Kaushal did a cameo in Gangs of Wasseypur?

Before entering the big screen Vicky was behind the camera as an assistant director. For this film, Vicky was working as an Ad while his father, Sham Kaushal, was the action director.

Recently while talking to Midday Vicky spoke about the blink and miss appearance in Gangs of Wasseypur. He said, “It’s the scene where Nagma Khatoon (Richa Chadha) goes to a brothel. Last-minute, everyone (junior artistes) that we’d rounded up in Benares refused to participate in that scene, once they realized it’s a brothel. The entire direction team stood in for them.”

Vicky added, “I’m that silhouette you see behind the window-grille, overacting karte hue, when Nagma Khatoon is cursing Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee)! That was the first time I faced a camera.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Vicky Kaushal is quite busy with multiple projects. The actor will soon be seen playing the titular role in Sardar Udham Singh. He will also star as Sam Manekshaw in the film Sam Bahadur.
