The 27-year-old actor had his fair share of struggle like going through the rounds of meeting people and auditioning, before he bagged his first film role.

Vicky says he has seen his father go through the grind of showbiz before making a name for himself and he would like to take the same path to success.

"When I told my father that I wanted to join the film industry, he asked me if I was sure about it as acting is a very insecure profession. He also asked me if my reason to join the same profession like him was to have an easy road. I said no," Vicky told media during a visit here.

However, Vicky said his father has assured him that he will always be there to guide him in his career, but only as a parent and not help him get opportunities.

Growing up, Vicky did not have the typical star kid environment at home. Nor was he star-struck and almost never visited his father on sets, except for that one time when he went to see his favourite actor Hrithik Roshan while he was filming 'Fiza' with Shyam.

Vicky never even wanted to join showbiz as he had his life sorted as an engineering student, but found his calling in films just before starting his job and decided to give it a shot.

Vicky, who is gearing up for the release of his second film 'Zubaan' which hits theatres tomorrow, said he does not feel like a star yet, although he is overwhelmed by the love showered on him by the industry, critics and audience.
