Vikrant Massey opens about his constant challenge to not get typecast as daily soap actor
Actor Vikrant Massey, who is set to feature in Gaslight alongside Sara Ali Khan, said he makes a conscious effort to offer something fresh or something new to the viewers.
Vikrant Massey, who is currently shooting for his next with Sara Ali Khan , 'Gaslight' in Rajkot, strongly believes in giving something different yet real to the audience with his work and his list of previous hits like Haseen Dilruba, Love Hostel , A Death In the Gunj, Mirzapur etc. to name a few, have all been proof of his same.
Talking about this conscious effort and the challenges it comes with, Vikrant shares “It's a constant challenge for any actor to not get typecast and that's been one of the core motives of my life. Even when I was doing television, I didn't want to get typecast as a TV actor or a daily soap actor. The idea was to go out there and offer something fresh or something new."
He adds, "Even when I started off with films, I wanted to churn out things which are unique in perspective, unheard, unseen of and most importantly, far more real. I think there is a part in all of us which distinguishes between realism and make believe. When we play a character which is close to us in reality, we end up forming an attachment to it."
The popular actor was highly praised by the audience and the critics alike for his performance as Ashu in his latest release, 'Love Hostel', leaving everyone impressed with his first ever outing in an action packed role.
Besides 'Gaslight' that he is currently shooting for, Vikrant also has 'Forensic' alongside Radhika Apte .
