Vicky Kaushal opens up about losing out on an ad because of his looks

Vicky Kaushal is a force to reckon with today in Bollywood. The actor, who burst onto the screen with the 2015 film Masaan, has come a long way ever since his debut. He has a number of successful films to his credit, and his lineup of upcoming films can give any established actor a run for his money.


Having said that, his journey to reach where he is today in life was not all rosy. He too had to face rejections just like any actor in showbiz. Remembering one such incident, Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019) told a publication that he was once rejected for a deodorant advertisement because of looks.

“I still remember there was an ad film audition for a deodorant and this is the time when all you had to do was spray it on your body and have girls falling all over you. You need a great physique and good looks. I went there with no physique and no looks. I knocked on the door and the casting director opened it. I asked him whether I was fit for the audition and he didn’t say if I was fit, he said, “It’s an ad film for a deodorant,” and I had to understand that he meant no but I was stubborn," he said.

Adding further, Vicky Kaushal said, "So I asked again and he told me to come in. So I went in and it was a small room with a hundred boys and every one was in great shape and good looking. I was sitting there like an under confident fellow and I was like, “I’m not getting this job, so let me just enjoy it and go for it.” So, I went and did all I could and performed. I obviously didn’t get it.”

Meanwhile, Vicky Kaushal is in news for his rumoured wedding with Katrina Kaif. According to reports, the two are set to marry each other in Rajasthan in December.
