Vicky Kaushal, who’s the new guest on Discovery+’s Into the Wild with Bear Grylls, opened up about his childhood and his journey as an actor during the show.

The actor, who made several brief appearances in films including Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012) and Bombay Velvet (2015) and found recognition with Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan (2015) revealed that he grew up in a house that was slightly bigger than the shack they’d built for the show. “A 10 by 10 house with no separate kitchen or bathroom. That’s where I was born. And from thereon, it has been my family’s journey. And we’ve seen each step of the ladder, you know, as a family. And that I think makes you a very strong person in the journey,” Vicky said.

 

Before beginning his Bollywood career as an assistant director to Anurag Kashyap for Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), Vicky studied engineering. “I’ve been an engineering student and [my dad] was very happy seeing his kid become an engineer,” Vicky told Bear Grylls, “Because nobody in my family before me has ever done a 9-to-5 job where they get monthly pay cheques, where they get weekends off so they can plan family time. In the second year of my graduation, the faculty took me to an industrial visit to show us what the future is like and how companies work and all that and I went there, and till that time I was actually a rat in the race. But the day I went there, I saw people working over there in front of computers, I just couldn’t feel that. And for the first time in my life, I just was very sure of something that I don’t belong here.”
