Vicky Kaushal is certainly the breakout star of 2018. Not that half of the nation was not already in love with him for his dusky, boy-next-door looks. But with multiple successful outings in the past year, the entirety of the nation has come around to loving and recognising him. The actor starred in Love Per Square Foot, Lust Stories, Manmarziyaan, Sanju and Raazi in 2018 alone. With his growing popularity, no wonder Elle India picked him to be the face of their January issue. Vicky Kaushal features on the cover mag's cover this month, and, ladies, you should get ready to go weak in the knees.

Vicky's cover has a very simple yet sexy monochrome vibe. It is the kind of minimalist magazine cover that is certainly the need of the hour. Also, do not forget to notice that the actor is drenched in the picture. Talking about the cover, Elle India wrote on Instagram, "On a chilly December morning, @vickykaushal09 suggested that he jump into the sub-zero pool at the Amanbagh in Alwar, for the perfect cover shot. It was an insane idea but then again madness is one of those vital ingredients you need to make it in the movie business."

On the work front, Vicky will see his first release of 2019 this Friday. The war drama titled Uri opens in theatres in two days. He is set to start shooting for Karan Johar's directorial Takht this year.
