One actor who is both flexible and skilled is Vikrant Massey. Fans have frequently complimented him on his acting abilities, and many of his movies have become favourites. He made a flawless transition from the small screen to the big one. Many Bollywood actresses have recently spoken about the film industry’s pay difference, pouring their hearts out. However, Vikrant discussed the pay gap in a recent interview with ETimes.

The movie Chhapaak, which also featured Deepika Padukone and was directed by Meghna Gulzar, is one that fans of Vikrant Massey still remember. The actor discussed the film’s box office flop and stated that despite its poor performance, he is still proud of it. He thinks that political factors impacted Chhapaak’s performance. Vikrant continued by addressing the pay gap in Bollywood by saying, “Bahar ke jo so-called ‘A-listers’ he woh bhi platforms pe films kar rahe he. Humare ‘so-called A-listers’ he yaha ke, superstars he, pichle 15-20 saalon se TV pe kaam kar rahe he. Most of my female co-stars have been paid more than me, but I have never complained about it. My big body of work does not give me as much money as you know, Deepika Padukone.”

Vikrant further stated, “I am comfortable doing things I feel about, or strongly about, in social media… There have been days when I have taken a few comments about me, my family, my wife… to heart, and I haven’t been able to sleep that day.”

The last time we saw Vikrant Massey was in the critically acclaimed film Gaslight, featuring Chitrangada Singh and Sara Ali Khan. He has a few projects in the works, and one of those is a sequel to his crime drama Haseen Dilruba, in which Sunny Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu will star.
