Neeraj Ghaywan, who went on to direct the acclaimed movie Masaan (2015), was also an assistant director on Gangs Of Wasseypur. Kaushal impressed Ghaywan when he auditioned for Masaan and thus got his big acting break. His performance in the movie was highly appreciated and he won the International Indian Film Academy award for Best Male Debut.
In 2016, Kaushal played the role of a young man with a stammering problem in the movie Zubaan. He also reunited with Anurag Kashyap, this time as an actor, for Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016). This was followed by his much-lauded role as a Pakistani army officer in Raazi (2018) starring Alia Bhatt.
Kaushal's work in the Sanjay Dutt biopic Sanju has also come in for a lot of praise. The actor, who has also starred in the Netflix movies Love Per Square Foot and Lust Stories, will soon be seen in Manmarziyaan, slated for release in 2018.
