Shireen Mirza has shared an unseen video from her acting school days with Vicky Kaushal in 2009. Shireen conducted an Ask Me Anything session on Instagram in which a fan asked her to share a picture or video with Vicky. She went on to share a video of their skit on Instagram Stories.
Shireen captioned it, “Jab hum chote bachhe the (when we used to be kids),” and added laughing emojis. In another slide, she sort of apologised to Vicky for posting the video and wrote, “folding hands already for posting this ha ha ha,” with folded hands and laughing emojis. Reacting to the video and sharing it on Instagram Stories, Vicky wrote, “Good old acting school days (2009).”
Vicky started his career in acting with his first leading role in the independent drama Masaan (2015), which earned him the IIFA and Screen Awards for Best Male Debut, following which he starred as an unhinged cop in Kashyap's psychological thriller Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016).
The actor rose to prominence in 2018 with supporting roles in Raazi and Sanju, two of the highest-grossing Hindi films of the year. For the latter, he won the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. His 2018 projects also included starring roles in the Netflix films Love Per Square Foot and Lust Stories. The following year, he played the lead role of a military officer in both critically acclaimed and commercially successful action film Uri: The Surgical Strike, winning the National Film Award for Best Actor, in addition to a Filmfare Award for Best Actor nomination.
