Winner of the National Film Award for the film Uri: The Surgical Strike Bollywood Actor Vicky Kaushal's first leading role was in the independent drama Masaan (2015). Born to Veena Kaushal and action director Sham Kaushal on the 16th of May 1988 in Malad, Mubai Vicky has a younger brother named Sunny Kaushal, who is an assistant director.

He played minor roles in Kashyap's productions Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012) and Bombay Velvet (2015), and the experimental short film Geek Out (2013). His acting career took a turn with his critically acclaimed roles in Raazi and Sanju, two of the highest-grossing Hindi films of the year 2018. He will soon be seen in Meghna Gulzar's Sam Bahadur, based on the life of Sam Manekshaw, Sardar Udham Singh, Ashwatthama and Takht.
