Even though Vicky Kaushal is a newcomer with just four films under his belt, the actor has been able to make a mark in Bollywood. His intense performance in Anurag Kashyap’s 2016 directorial Raman Raghav 2.0 had left everyone impressed. The actor will be seen in a light-hearted role in Netflix’s upcoming Hindi feature film, Love Per Square Foot.

The movie is a contemporary love story in which the protagonists, played by Vicky and the new entrant Angira Dhar, are looking for their own house in Mumbai, and getting married could make their dreams come true. But as they say, ‘Ladka ladki kabhi dost nahi reh sakte’, their relationship of convenience transforms into love and leads to many complexities.vicky-kaushal

In an exclusive conversation with indianexpress.com, Vicky Kaushal talked about how it was different to play Sanjay Chaturvedi in Love Per Square Foot. “Everybody is saying that they are loving to see me in such a light-hearted role,” said Vicky.

The actor continues, “The light-hearted role wasn’t a cake walk. Comedy is difficult to do. It is all about the moment and how you have grip of the moment. I have learnt a lot on the sets and I thank Anand Tiwari, who himself is a fantastic actor, which worked as a boon for me. He guided me quite well. With such a great ensemble cast, it was amazing to work on the film be it Pathak sisters, Raghubir Yadav or my co-star and newbie Angira Dhar. So, the team pushed me to do well and of course, the director brought the best out of me. He is the director of the future. He is too good He has an amazing comic timing. He was my reference point for the character. We bonded really well. It was quite a new process of learning for me. My sense of humour has become better.”

As the actor shared about the film, he told me how he would never be in a relationship of convenience like his character from Love Per Square Foot. Vicky said, “I don’t believe in relationship of convenience, personally. I am an introvert, not that much now after getting into acting, but in a relationship sense. I believe in becoming friends first and in knowing each other. It is very old school way of getting into a relationship, even if it is a love at first sight. Relationship of convenience has never happened to me, so I cannot talk much about it. In the film, we have explored both – negative and positive side – of being in such a relationship.”

The actor was seen in Masaan and despite being a newbie in a movie that had a stellar star cast, Vicky was able to grab eyeballs. Masaan was a love story too but different to Love Per Square Foot. So, how did he treat both the films? The actor averred, “Both the films had their own complications and charm. For Masaan, I was not familiar with that kind of world it was based in while in Love Per Sqaure Foot, I was living in the same world. The characters in LPSF are street smart, knows the ways to get a job done while Masaan had a poetic pace, language and romance. Masaan ki khoobsurat baat yeh hai ki humne pyaar me padna dekha. Otherwise you experience love stories which show story after the protagonists fall in love. It was a journey similar to how food gets cooked. LPSF is more practical and talks about the things you see around. It shows how couples take to the city in order to spend some personal time in Nariman Point, Marine Drive and so on.”

Love Per Square Foot is Vicky’s first film in 2018. The actor has been busy with many projects that would release this year. “2017 has been a very good year. I have shot for many films and all of these would be releasing this year. I have shot with Karan Johar (Bombay Talkies 2), Rajkumar Hirani (Dutt Biopic) and Meghna Gulzar (Raazi). Also, on sets of Manmarziyan for now, which is directed by Anurag Kashyap. I have learnt a lot from these ace directors,” quipped the Maasan actor.

The film is produced by Bollywood veteran Ronnie Screwvala’s new production company RSVP, Love Per Square Foot would release this Valentine Day.
