He further added that he doesn't find himself amongst the handsome men ever as according to him, there are many with better physique and charisma. Vicky, adding on this told that his range of work has resonated with the audience and once some other actor with better films will draw attention, the audience will hail him as the heartthrob.

"I am single. The heartthrob element also takes me by surprise a bit. I think it is a very pleasant feeling. It's got a lot to do with the characters I've played, and that they've resonated. It's not like I'm the handsomest man ever. There are much sexier men, with better physique and charisma. The difference is that my work has resonated with the audience, so there's relatability with this guy, on-screen — that's the edge. Tomorrow there'll be another one, whose works will resonate, and he'll become the heartthrob. I'm not the first or last such. It is part and parcel," Vicky told during the interview.
