He made an impressive debut as Deepak in 'Masaan' and his turn as a man on a self-discovery journey in 'Zubaan' cemented his standing as an able actor.

The 28-year-old star says it's the audience who has categorised him in a certain type but for him, he is just an excited performer who wants to keep exploring different characters as he grows in the industry.

"The moment I start categorising myself, I will start limiting myself as an actor. I don't know what I am capable of as of now. I did not know I could play Deepak in 'Masaan' or do 'Zubaan'... And that's how I want to keep it. When you are not sure if you can do a film, then you feel excited as a performer," Vicky told PTI in an interview.

The actor says audience's perception is something that he would like to break with every film.

"I want them to believe in an image and then break it. I want to create an image and then break it. I don't mind the perception of being an indie actor though because it means 'Masaan' stayed with them. It's a compliment."

Vicky is ready to surprise his fans again with Anurag Kashyap's crime-thriller "Raman Raghav 2.0", where he is ditching his romantic, boy-next-door image by playing a
troubled cop.

"That is a deliberate effort from my end. Whatever I do, should surprise me and the audience and I want that with every film people should feel 'What is he upto now?'."

Vicky says it was a huge deal for him that a director of Kashyap's stature had shown trust in him.

"I feel very fortunate that in my third film, I am playing a character like this and a director like Anurag Kashyap has shown trust in me. It means a huge deal... I also had to push myself as far as I could to portray this role."
