“I had completed CAT by the time of KohraVicky recalls. “It didn’t even occur to me that I was playing back-to-back cop. The first priority is to take work when it is offered to you, and the next challenge is to understand the character. The roles are quite different. One is the antagonist and the other a protagonist. They have different shades.”

Like a few other Punjabi actors who have made their mark in Hindi films and shows – Samuel John and Vansh Bhardwaj among them – Vicky came from the scenes of state theater and arthouse films. Vicky holds a Master’s degree in Theater and Television from Punjabi University in Patiala. “I did a lot of theater work and then started appearing in television serials and Punjabi movies,” he said.

Samuel John, who was in Gurvinder Singh’s directorial debut Anhe Ghore Da Daan (2011), also plays a key role Kohra, as a truck driver with possible ties to the murder. Vicky was part of Singh’s cast Chauthi Koot (2015).

After Chauthi KootVicky showed his range in that of Ivan Ayr Milestone (2020). Vicky memorably plays a truck driver faced with budget cuts and irrelevance.

In an earlier interview with RoleAyr said he cast Vicky after watching Chauthi Koot. “Suvinder’s face felt very strong and good,” Ayr said. “He has dignified the character and has shown skill at restraining himself. It takes a lot to maintain restraint, even when there are so many pent up emotions.

The experience in art house cinema served Vicky well after the Hindi film industry took notice of his performances. from Kohra Sudip Sharma was the co-author of Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab (2016), in which Vicky had a small role as a drug runner’s accomplice.

Vicky also appeared in the Hindi period drama Kesari. In the Prime Video series Patal Lokwhich Sudip Sharma created and wrote, Vicky played a character named Balbir Singh Sekhon.

“I’ve been lucky enough to keep getting roles,” Vicky commented. His approach to his craft has changed over time.

“The more work you do, your character development evolves accordingly,” said Vicky. “You may have studied something, but the practical application of it is very different. You could develop characters through research. Of Kohra, I felt I had to bring out the character from the inside out. Balbir couldn’t be too loud, he had to be close to life, he had to feel from the inside.”
