New Delhi: The year 2021 could very well be described as “the year of celebrity weddings”. From Varun Dhawan to Rajkummar Rao, we’ve seen the most eligible singles and singles in Indian cinema walk down the Matrimonial Alley. But it also wouldn’t be wrong to say that the excitement surrounding Vicky Kushal and Katrina Kaif’s wedding festivities currently taking place in Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan is on a whole new level. From blurry videos of the venue to wild bangs on the guest list, Bollywood fans indulge in fun jokes about the long-awaited wedding. We take this opportunity to take a close look at the family of groom Vicky Kaushal as they prepare to welcome Katrina Kaif into their fold.
We start with Patriarch Sham Kaushal, who has been in the film industry for decades as a renowned action director. Sham Kaushal started his career as a stuntman and rose through the ranks as an action director. He is known for his work in films such as Heroes, Gangs of Wasseypur, Bajirao Mastani, Gunday, Ram Leela and Gangubai Kathiawadi. He has worked with several veteran actors including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Jackie Shroff, Sanjay Dutt, Aishwarya Rai, among others.
Here’s a look at a photo Sham Kaushal shared from his time as actor Govinda’s understudy.
Vicky Kaushal’s mother, Veena Kaushal is the core of the family, as evidenced by the photos and videos shared by Kaushals on Instagram. In November, Vicky Kaushal shared a photo of the family celebrating Veena Kaushal’s 60th birthday and the couple’s 35th wedding anniversary. Sharing a photo with her parents, Vicky wrote: “She turned 60. They turned 35. A rather special day for the Kaushal family. “
Next on the block is Vicky Kaushal’s younger brother, Sunny Kaushal. One glance at him and you will agree that acting talent and a penchant for cinema are family. Sunny Kaushal followed in his older brother’s footsteps. He started his journey in the film industry as an assistant director on films such as My friend Pinto and Gunday. Sunny Kaushal debuted in the 2016 film Sunshine Music Tours and Voyages. He followed this up with works in films like Or and Shiddat.
Sunny Kaushal also had the chance to work with her father in the web series The Forgotten Army – Azaadi Ke Liye. Sharing a photo of the father-son duo on set, Father Sham Kaushal wrote, “God is good.
