Actor Vicky Kaushal, whose father is the renowned action director Sham Kaushal, revealed he has no qualms in being a technician’s son. "Today, I am here to give my claps, respect and love to all the beautiful technicians who are the real heroes behind the camera. They help us actors to become stars and they help us to reach the audience. I am myself a technician’s sons and I am proud to be one, I have the utmost respect for them," said Vicky, while speaking to the media at the red carpet of IIFA Rocks 2019 on Monday in Mumbai.
The actor said that he is excited and nervous about performing at IIFA awards. "This year on September 18, for the first time I will be performing at IIFA awards. This platform has been always special to me. I got my Best Debut Actor award in 2016 at IIFA awards. I feel a little nervous and very excited to perform at the awards night," he said.
Vicky recently won a National Award as Best Actor for his role in Uri: The Surgical Strike. Talking about his success in a short span of time, Vicky stated, "I feel I have a long way to go but it makes me happy when people validate my work and acknowledge my efforts with awards. Last year has been really beautiful for me.” He also spoke about helping towards making India and environmentally friendly place. "I feel we should minimise use of plastic because it will be beneficial for our environment and the future generations. I think we need to be careful about nature. On our film sets, you will not get any plastic bottles. We have replaced them with steel bottles. Every film set you go to is trying to make minimum use of plastic."
