The Challenges Faced by Sham Kaushal
In a recent interview, Vicky Kaushal, the talented Bollywood actor, shed light on the difficulties his father, Sham Kaushal, faced in the film industry. Sham Kaushal is renowned for his work as a stunt director, but his journey was not without its share of challenges.
Vicky shared how his father was often subjected to humiliation and scolding during his career. He revealed that there was a time when his father even shed tears on set after being referred to as “just a stuntman.” Vicky recalled, “He has tried to make us strong, emotionally. He would openly tell us, ‘I felt humiliated on set today, and I came back and I cried to your mom.’ He would say that to us when we were children. And mom would tell us this, that one time this had happened, that had happened, and some senior had scolded him in front of the whole set when he was just a stuntman. And he came back home and cried. So, this was never hidden from us. And he has cried in front of us,” as revealed to We Are Yuvaa.
“Things are not going to go in your favour all the time. Most times they are going to be against you; that’s how life is,”
