And it’s not just us, here’s somebody special who is also a part of Kamli’s fan club. Read on to know…
Vicky said that the best compliment for his performance came from none other than Sanjay Dutt himself. Yes, post watching the film, Dutt told Vicky, "I got really emotional with your performance. You have truly portrayed the meaning of friendship, and your act is accurate when I think of the friends I have had. Puttar, tune dil jeet liya (Son, you have won my heart)," as reported by Mid-day.
The actor, who is currently in Serbia shooting for his next film Uri, also said that working with Hirani was a dream come true for him.
"I am missing out on celebrating the success with the entire team in Mumbai. However, I'm overwhelmed by the reaction that the film has received. Being a part of a Rajkumar Hirani film was a dream come true," he added.
Also speaking of his comparison with Ranbir, he said that the latter’s performance was unbelievable in the film and he is one of the finest actors in the industry.
“His honesty towards the craft could be seen in his performance. I don't think we can be compared," he added.
