Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Yashika Mathur

Ac­tor Vikas Verma (left) is three films old in Bol­ly­wood and has es­sayed only neg­a­tive roles till now. The ac­tor doesn’t fear get­ting type­cast and has a rea­son be­hind tak­ing up such of­fers.

“It’s not that I am fas­ci­nated with the neg­a­tive im­age, but I love do­ing some­thing which is more chal­leng­ing and out- of-the­box. It’s very dif­fi­cult to make peo­ple hate you,” says Vikas, who re­cently starred as Charles Di­wan in the film Mom. “I find a dif­fer­ent kind of high in tak­ing up such dif­fi­cult tasks,” he adds.

Vikas, who ear­lier starred in Yaariyan (2014) and Shaan­daar (2015), is smit­ten by his Mom co-star Sridevi and says this is one film that he will cher­ish for­ever. “Work­ing with Sridevi ma’am was like a dream come true. She is a su­per­star and there is a lot that you can learn from her. She did com­plete jus­tice to the role of a mother and off-screen also she is just like that — pro­tec­tive, car­ing and lov­ing,” says Vikas.

Talk­ing about his up­com­ing films, Vikas, who will soon be seen in the se­quel of 1997 film Jud­waa, says, “My fo­cus is to work non-stop.” He adds on a lighter note, “I am look­ing for­ward to work on some unique scripts where I can ex­plore my act­ing abil­i­ties and make more peo­ple hate my char­ac­ters with time.”
