Veteran action director Sham Kaushal’s son Vicky Kaushal, who made his debut with the critically acclaimed Masaan, was discovered by debutant director Mozez Singh for his upcoming musical drama, Zubaan, set in Delhi and Punjab.
It’s learnt that Vicky’s character and look in Zubaan is inspired by the legendary pop singer, composer and actor Gurdas Maan, who recently flew to Mumbai to watch the movie and interact with the cast including Vicky Kaushal and Sarah Jane Dias.
Vicky plays a singer-composer based in Punjab and while Mozez was working on the character look, the first name that came to his mind was of Gurdas Maan.
Interestingly, Vicky’s father Sham Kaushal is Gurdas Maan’s best friend. So the makers have decided to keep a special screening for the legendary singer in Mumbai.
Produced by Wave Cinema, Guneet Monga and Shaan Vyas of Sikhya Entertainment & Metamozez Entertainment, Zubaan featuring Vicky Kaushal and Sarah Jane Dias is scheduled to release 4th March.
