There is no doubt in saying that commercial films open more doors for upcoming actors and film-makers, which is exactly what Vikrant Massey has experienced. After his stint in Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Chhapaak’ (2020), the actor spoke to the media and explained he has been offered more opportunities than he had before.

“In some ways I can say (that the film gave me a push). Because a lot of what we do is perception driven, so people started taking me as an actor a little more seriously. Some take me as a little more bankable in some ways, I don’t know how true that is but yeah there were offers pouring in,” Filmfare reports the actor stating.

He went on to say, “Any film that you do which is out in the public domain is there in the archival museum, it’ll always be there and one helps the other. It’s like a domino effect. So ‘Chhapaak’ did help me for it made more writers and directors take me a little more seriously, for the lack of a better word. And I am so proud to be a part of that film, I’ll always be.”

Massey has continued to receive huge applause for his roles thereafter, and if this is anything to go by, we will be in for a lot more brilliant story-telling from this actor.
