Vicky Kaushal has acted in films like Masaan, Raman Raghav and now Raazi, where he played the role of a Pakistani army officer, opposite Alia Bhatt. “Pressure is a good thing. When your work is accepted and loved, then only people have expectations. As an actor, I want to raise the bar of expectations for the audience with every film. If there are expectations and pressure from audience then it means they care for you. It is a good thing, I take it as a positive thing,” he told PTI.Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi is headlined by Alia Bhatt. She plays Sehmat, an Indian spy in the film. Sehmat gets married to a Pakistani army officer (Vicky in the film) to get inside information about her country and its safety. Raazi is set during the Indo-Pak war of 1971.

I want to be on a film set a lot of the time, it is like a paradise for me,” he told PTI.
“It is a pleasant surprise for all of us, as a team we are very happy. We are grateful to all those who saw the film in theatres and loved it. I am happy and feel proud of showing my success, appreciation to my parents. With every film I hope it is a turning point of my career. I am happy with the love Raazi has got,” Vicky added.
