Here's Why Vicky Kaushal Is Bollywood's Saddest Movie Boyfriend

Team FC

Take Kaushal's first movie appearance in Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012), which is also the first documented evidence of his Sad Movie Boyfriend persona. In contrast to most of his filmography, Kaushal does actually get the girl by the end of this movie…but only by turning into Kunal Kapoor first. 

Masaan (2015), Kaushal's first film as a lead actor, sees him play a man in the first flush of young love.As Deepak, he falls for Shalu (Shweta Tripathi) the first time he sees her. Shalu dies in a tragic bus accident and in a cruel turn of fate, her body is brought to the crematorium Deepak's family works at. He retreats into himself after that.

A contrast to Kaushal's image as the wholesome, supportive man who loses his partner to circumstances beyond his control is Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016). His insistence on not wanting children combined with his refusal to wear a condom leads to his girlfriend (Sobhita Dhulipala) getting three abortions. But since the Sad Movie Boyfriend curse is too strong and Kaushal can't escape it even here, he does what the film won't do and kills her himself.

In Raazi, the forces of patriotism itself conspire to wreck Kaushal's onscreen love life. He plays Iqbal, a gentle military officer who marries college student Sehmat (Alia Bhatt) in a cross-border match arranged by their fathers. Lest you still don't feel bad for him, he also dies in a bomb blast meant for her. On the same day. Life really isn't fair to Vicky Kaushal characters.

If Kamli in Sanju tries too hard, Vicky in Manmarziyaan loses the girl because he doesn't try at all. By the time Vicky wises up, it's too late and Rumi's married to the more stable banker Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan). Hurt, he trades his graphic tees for suits, grows out his hair and makes plans to move to Sydney and co-run a cab driving business.
