‘Humiliated on sets’
Speaking about the time dad Sham was ‘humiliated’ on sets once, Vicky said, “He has tried to make us strong, emotionally. He would openly tell us, ‘I felt humiliated on set today and I came back and I cried to your mom.’ He would say that to us when we were children. And mom would tell us this, that one time this had happened, that had happened, and some senior had scolded him in front of the whole set when he was just a stuntman. And he came back home and cried. So, this was never hidden from us. And he has cried in front of us.”
He also gave an important advice to his sons, “Things are not going to go in your favour all the time. Most times they are going to be against you; that’s how life is.” Sham worked on films such as Dangal, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat, Krrish 3 and more.
