On Thursday, Vicky Kaushal’s father, Sham Kaushal, shared a major throwback picture of his sons Vicky and Sunny posing with Shah Rukh Khan. The image is from the sets of Shah Rukh’s 2001 film Asoka, co-starring Kareena Kapoor.
In the image, we can see little Vicky and Sunny happily posing for the camera with Shah Rukh, while in the background, we can see Sham Kaushal and Shershaah director Vishnu Vardhan. Along with a picture, he wrote a long note about how nobody imagined Vicky would join the film industry, and in 2022 both Vicky and Vishnu Vardhan will win Best Actor and Best Director awards for Sardar Udham and Shershaah, respectively.
“By God’s grace this photo was taken in 2001 during the shooting of Asoka in Film City. Vishnu Vardhan was asstt director & Vicky was studying in 8th standards. No body ever imagined that one day Vicky will join film line & in 2022 both of them will be winning Best Director & Best Actor Awards respectively for Shershaah & Sardar Udham. Destiny & God’s blessings #vishnuvardhan @vickykaushal09 Rab di meher,” read the caption.
Soon after he shared the post, fans flooded the comment section. A user wrote, “Awesome… Really appreciate my favourite Heroes…..Rab rakha…Hard work always pays …stay blessed,” while another wrote, “Who also that thought that same guy will get Katrina Kaif.”
