Written by Swaati on December 7, 2023
The latest episode of Koffee with Karan brings together the dynamic duo, Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal, who were last seen together in Govinda Naam Mera. During the chat, Vicky talked about his special appearance in Dunki starring Shah Rukh Khan and helmed by Rajkumar Hirani.
While Vicky has remained tight-lipped about his special appearance in Dunki, he opened up about it on the latest episode. Recalling a moment on set, Vicky said, “In 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.”
This left Vicky mesmerized. “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.
Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, Dunki is set to release on December 21, 2023.
