No competition with Ayushmann Khurrana: Vicky Kaushal

Mumbai: Vicky Kaushal sees Ayushmann Khurrana as a friend and elder brother who he can learn a lot from. The actors who share a Punjabi connect are currently the favourites to host award ceremonies after their bromance was much appreciated on Koffee with Karan.

Denying the existence of any sort of competition between the duo, Vicky said, “There is absolutely no competition between us. He is a friend and an inspiration for the kind of movies that he has done. I look at him like an elder brother.”

Vicky was speaking at an awards ceremony that he co-hosted with Ayushmann. To express his love for the latter, Vicky even went and planted a kiss on Ayushmann’s cheek. Talking about his own progress this year, Vicky said that 2018 was a good year for him and that he had positive expectation from 2019.

“For the first time ever, mine is the first film to release at the start of a new year,” said the actor. “Uri is releasing on January 11 and I am very excited about it. I am happy that our trailer has got a great positive response. I am looking forward to its release,” said Vicky.

Uri is based on the surgical strikes India conducted in Pakistan after 19 Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani terrorists.
