Currently in the midst of preparing for her current projects, news has it that Kangna Ranaut’s forthcoming film titled ‘Mental’, will soon be underway too. Having had trouble finding a male lead, apparently the makers of the film have zeroed in on Vicky Kaushal.
“Kangna plays a dark character in ‘Mental’. Vicky slips into the part of her nemesis. He instantly fell for his role when he read the script,” Filmfare reports a source revealing.
They went on to add, “The makers wanted someone who could give a tough fight to Kangna’s character, and Vicky has showcased sufficient range to provide the same.”
Rumours were doing the rounds that the likes of Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana had been suggested for the role. But it seems Kaushal is the perfect fit.
Before sinking his teeth into this film however, like his co-star Ranaut, also has a number of projects lined up including the Sanjay Dutt biopic and Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Raazi’ opposite Alia Bhatt.
