Vicky had previously spoke fondly about the singer and told a leading tabloid that he met the singer for the first time after the release of his film Masaan and said that he told the singer that he had idolised him since he was a child and received a Rs 500 note from him. The actor and groom-to-be had said, “I look upto Gurdas Maan. He’s my idol. He gave me a currency note once and since then I till date have it saved with me in my wallet. I have so much respect for him and in my lifetime if I can even achieve 10% of what he has achieved I would be satisfied as an artist.”
