From being a small screen favourite to a promising actor in Bollywood, Vikrant Massey is here to rule the industry with his immense talent. Here’s why we love him and his characters.
Ours is a country that has always been a fan of movies and the Bollywood industry. But things have changed and now the perception of the audience has changed. It is no longer about the grandeur of the movies, but about good and quality content. Thanks to the amazing amount of web-shows and series we get to see on the small screen. What also makes these online platforms and its content great is the number of talents that it produces. It is through these shows that we get to witness some talented actors who make an impact in the minds of the audiences. Vikrant Massey is one such talent who has been able to grab the audience’s attention with his roles and craft. Which is why he is an actor whom we would love to see more of on the big screen.
Vikrant has been part of a number of notable series and movies. He was part of series such as Dharam Veer, Balika Vadhu, Baba Aiso Varr Dhoondo, and Qubool Hai. Making a brief appearance in Lootera he walked into the film industry, followed by Dil Dhadakne Do and then Half Girlfriend. He made sure to make his presence felt with every character that played no matter how short the screentime.
Vikrant Massey is the sublime example of what realistic representation looks like. It is said that one can do the harder roles but acing the simple is difficult. Well, Vikrant has less to worry in that case. It is his awe-inspiring portrayal of Shyamal Chatterjee, his first film as the lead in Konkana Sen Sharma‘s directorial debut movie A Death in the Gunj, that hooked us to the movie, winning him critical acclamation. We all have screamed our hearts out when Bablu Pandit was shot at the end of Mirzapur and we definitely crushed over Veer Shekhawat from Broken But Beautiful and was last seen sharing screen space with Deepika Padukone in Chhapaak. It is his infectious smile and the ability to emote that has the audience singing his praises.
Happy birthday, Vikrant! May we see a lot more of you on the big screen.
