Actor Vikrant Massey marked his debut in the Hindi film industry with Vikramaditya Motwane’s lyrical love story, Lootera in 2013 where he was seen in the role of hero’s best friend. He also went on to appear in multi-starrers such as Dil Dhadakne Do and Lipstick Under My Burkha and continued to shine bright in them. While he had already proved his mettle with these projects, it was A Death In The Gunj in 2017 which established him as a leading man. With Chhapaak that released the screens early this year and the recently released Cargo, Massey has come on his own as the driving force behind a narrative.

The actor who is looking forward to playing the lead role in ace cinematographer and director Santosh Sivan’s next, the Hindi remake of 2017 Tamil action thriller, Maanagaram. According to producer Shibu Thameens, Vikrant Massey will be seen playing a young angry man in the film, a role that is completely different from anything that he has done so far. Sharing more about the big project, Massey says that working with Sivan is a dream come true for him. He reveals that it was a rather surreal moment for him when he received a call to be a part of the film. “When I got the first call, for a day, I didn’t believe it was happening at all. I had a smile on my face for a week because Asoka is one of those films that I watch every time it airs on the television,” he shares.

As he looks forward to starting shooting, the actor believes that his responsibility has grown and now that he will be shouldering Sivan’s dream project. “Now, it’s my responsibility to deliver; an actor’s job today is to be worth his audience’s time and money, regardless of the screen size they are watching him on. The budgets of my films have changed and so, the stakes have risen. But I won’t change my approach of surrendering completely to my character and director,” he added.

The versatile actor is all set to bring an element of freshness and grit to the table. Right from being a successful television star to one of the most sought after actors in showbiz, his trajectory is one for the books.

Vikrant Massey, whose last release was Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, has his hands full. He is presently promoting his next titled Ginny Weds Sunny and has Haseen Dillruba and 14 Phere. The films are lined up for release.
