MASSEY’S BIG BREAK
If there is one thing that 2018 will be remembered for, it is the number of out ‘outsiders’ who made their mark leaving the star kids far behind. So you had the Ayushmann Khurranas, Vicky Kaushals and Rajkummar Raos striking it big. 2019 might see the addition of a new name – Vikrant Massey whose stellar work in Lootera, 2 States, Dil Dhadakne Do and Death in the Gunj has made him a crtic’s favourite. Thus far he was always stuck in the ‘hero’s friend’ roles. Now, he has landed the big one – the lead opposite Deepika Padukone in Meghna Gulzar’s next. Needless to say, the focus will be on Deepy but Vikrant will shine the way only he can.
