Vikrant Massey, riding on 'Criminal Justice' success, hikes his fees
Vikrant Massey, who was last seen in the hit web series Criminal Justice, is enjoying his success. And to cash in on this new-found fame, the actor has planned to hike his fees. Recent reports suggest that Vikrant will now demand a 40% increased fee. The jump asked by the Dil Dhadakne Do actor is substantial, but justified, as he has proved his bankability.
"His success ratio and choice of films have made him a bankable actor. Producers have faith in his acting prowess and popularity with the youth and hence don't hesitate to invest in him," a source stated. Vikrant started out as a television actor, making his debut in Kahaan Hoon Main in 2004. In Lootera, he had a small role, which started his Bollywood journey.
After appearing on one episode of Kahaan Hoon Main, Vikrant played Aamir Hassan on Disney Channel's Dhoom Machao Dhoom, which he choreographed too. Notably, he is a trained ballet dancer and has worked with ace choreographer Shiamak Davar. But he shot to fame with Colors' Balika Vadhu. In Bollywood, after Lootera, he starred in A Death in the Gunj, where his performance was hailed.
Talking about his mantra, Vikrant said, "I always knew a good performance and a good story can never go unnoticed. Anything that's good and has a certain amount of quality, slowly but surely, it'll be accepted. And that's the only thing that kept me going."
Currently, he is gearing up for Deepika Padukone's Chhapaak, which is based on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. He will essay the role of Laxmi's partner Alok Pandit in it. Talking about it, Vikrant told Mid Day, "Alok has been working with acid attack survivors for a while and has been through the entire struggle with Laxmi. Chhapaak will showcase interesting dynamics between them."
