Exclusive! Vikrant Massey: 2021 will be jam-packed with work, but I can take a week out for my shaadi – Times of India


He fits into the category of those who successfully forayed into Bollywood after winning popularity in the television industry. But what’s striking about Vikrant Massey is that unlike television where he played supporting roles, on the big screen, he took it a notch higher. Last year, he was seen in a lead role opposite Deepika Padukone in Chhapaak, a film that won him immense attention. In 2021, with his upcoming films he will be seen playing significant parts.

About the prominence he received thanks to Meghna Gulzar’s directorial, Chhapaak, he says, “I can say that post that film, the world around me has definitely changed. Suddenly logon ko aisa lagne laga hai ki… Yaar, yeh toh ab bada actor ban gaya hai. In fact, I started to see this change steadily post my projects like A Death In The Gunj (2017), Chhapaak and a web show that I did. Thanks to projects like these, now people have started taking me a little seriously. I am getting interesting scripts now.”

This year, Vikrant is looking forward to Haseen Dillruba and 14 Phere where he plays a protagonist opposite Taapsee Pannu and Kriti Kharbanda, respectively. There is a huge responsibility that comes with shouldering a project as the male lead, but that doesn’t scare him. He explains, “I am someone who has always believed that one works better under pressure. So, when the stakes are higher with bigger names attached to the project, there is a sense of responsibility which I want to believe brings out the best in me.”

While things are moving at a smooth pace for him on the professional front, and he’s loving the space that he is currently in, on the personal front, there is exciting development, too. The actor took to social media to reveal his brand-new house in Mumbai where he’s moving in with his fiancée, actor Sheetal Thakur. If it wasn’t for the lockdown that delayed plans for many, the positive changes in his personal life, too, would have happened sooner. He shares, “Agar lockdown nahi hota toh meri shaadi ho chuki hoti (sighs!). That’s one thing that pushed me back by a few months. I was supposed to get married to Sheetal last year, but the good thing is that I have this year to look forward to now. I am back to work in full swing and 2021 looks quite jam-packed, but come on, shaadi ke liye ek hafta toh nikaal hi sakta hoon, yaar. Hopefully, God willingly, 2021 is the year I am getting married!”

Ask him if his parents are eagerly waiting to see him tie the knot and he is quick to add, “Mere parents toh apni hi life mein bahut busy hai. Woh kehte hai ki beta shaadi pe kab aana hai buss bata dena (laughs!).”
