Vikrant Massey graced the MW’s August 2021 cover and talked about his journey over the years.
The actor believes that people in the industry will always notice the performances and says, “As an actor, you want to project yourself as someone who can do better than what he is doing right now, but it was always Konkona Sen Sharma and Honey Trehan’s decision. I remember Sen Sharma telling Trehan, ‘This is the boy I am looking at for Shutu’, and there was no objection. Initially, it didn’t sink in. And honestly, all I was waiting for at that time was just one opportunity, so that in the future, I can look back and see what I did with that opportunity. I always see every challenge as a chance. And this was a challenge for me — it was my director’s first film, my producer’s first film, and mine as the lead. I had to justify it. I think consistency has played a very important part in my career. No matter what kind of role you get, be it big or small, be it one scene or four scenes, if you play it with dedication and honesty, people will watch you and notice you.

He continues: For example, Lootera. It was such a huge film, with stars like Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha. I never anticipated that people would even notice me. In retrospect, I realise that yes, I did stand out in that crowd. That’s why today, through you, I want to reach out to all aspiring actors that no matter what the role is, don’t lose heart because the ones who want to see it, will see it.”
Coming to the upcoming projects, Massey will be seen in Forensic with Radhika Apte, Mumbaikar, Love Hostel and has signed some other exciting films.
