Vicky Kaushal says 'last person' he could connect with stardom is Hrithik Roshan: It was a phenomenon that hit everybody

Feb 28, 2024 06:11 AM IST

Hrithik Roshan became a household name after starring in a lead role in the blockbuster Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai (2000). Since then, he has featured in many films.

Vicky Kaushal thinks that Hrithik Roshan is the "last person" he could relate to with stardom and popularity. Speaking with GQ India, he also spoke about the difference in stardom between Dilip Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. About himself, Vicky said that he hasn't achieved it yet. He added it will be "much harder" for this generation to attain.

Vicky on if he has stardom

Vicky said, “I’ll tell you very frankly: Stardom is defined by the number of people who come to watch your film on day one, in a theatre—without being dependent on how good the trailer was, how fantastic the songs were, or how cool the poster was. They come to watch you. Irrespective of everything else. That’s the true definition of stardom. And honestly, that hasn’t happened to me yet. I still need to achieve that. I am not there yet.”

Vicky on stardom of Dilip, Rajesh, Amitabh, Shah Rukh, Hrithik

The actor said, "I think the idea of classic stardom will be replaced by a different version. The kind of popularity that Dilip Kumar, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan must have seen is as different from what Shah Rukh Khan has experienced. It’s still huge but a different manifestation of the same glory. The last person I felt this way about was Hrithik Roshan. It was a phenomenon that hit everybody. Right now, there’s confusion among the younger lot. Because we see a star every week who trends and then nobody remembers them a few weeks later. For this generation, it will be much harder to attain the stardom of the past.”

Vicky's films

Vicky will be seen in director Laxman Utekar's next period drama film Chhaava with Rashmika Mandanna. He also has Karan Johar's next untitled production venture opposite Tripti Dimri. Fans will also see Vicky in director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Love & War alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
