Vikrant Massey said – people are now liking the ‘gray’ character and realism in films

New Delhi. Actor Vikrant Massey believes that every person has a ‘grey’ (undefined) character and today’s cinema is a reflection of that, so filmmakers want to portray realism in their stories. Along with this, Massey is confident that the audience will love his film ‘Haseen Dilruba’ which is a small-town romantic thriller.

The film released on Netflix on Friday and features Massey as an introverted engineer named Rishu who falls in love with a fiery woman but their marriage is in jeopardy when someone else enters.

Directed by Vinil Mathew, who made ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, the film also stars Taapsee Pannu and Harshvardhan Rane in lead roles. Massey said that all the three characters in the film are strong-minded. The actor said in an interview to PTI-Bhasha, ‘We have many faces and we work on many levels every day. We live in society wearing a mask and this is reflected in these characters as well. We see this reflected in the cinema as people have started accepting the truth a little more. That is why more realism has been shown in the stories as well.

He said, ‘I think everyone likes characters who make mistakes. This is the new thing that you see in movies, people with gray characters, that people really like.’ The actor, who has garnered praise for his performances in “Lootera”, “A Death in the Ganj” and “Chhapaak”, said he liked the script as he does not usually get to play a character like Rishu.
