Actor Vicky Kaushal had a great 2018 with back-to-back hits in Sanju, Raazi, and Manmarziyaan among others. According to him, the box office collections are not an indicator to suggest whether a film is good or not. However, the 30-year-old actor believes that the numbers are important for the business.

Vicky told PTI in an interview, "It is a privilege and an honor for me to reach a stage where you get an opportunity to be tested. I am glad I got this opportunity with such a credible subject. Box office numbers can't decide whether it is a good film or not. But it is important, it is showbiz. A producer invests in a film and expects a good return.”
"In 2018, only the films that were good and appreciated did the numbers, irrespective of the cast and crew. The math has simplified a lot. If it is a good film, it will do the numbers," he added.
Vicky said he enjoys preparing for the roles played by him, "I love the prep time. The reaction or emotion comes from you and you realize it was there within you and it was untapped. This is the most beautiful part of this profession that you come to know about yourself and that is how you evolve not just as an actor but as a person."
The actor underwent extensive military training for Uri for his first film as lead 'Uri: The Surgical Strike'. The film also features Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam and popular TV actor Mohit Raina among others. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala's RSVP, the film is slated to release on January 11.
