Speaking about the film, ‘It’s an honour to associate with Vidhu Vinod Chopra for a film. I have a lot of my friends who work for VVC Films. One day Rajkumar Hirani messaged me that Vidhu Vinod Chopra wants to meet me. When I met him, He gave me a book, which I finished off in 12 hours. By then, I had decided to be a part of this film. This film has the tremendous potential to inspire the youths of the country. This film is not only about the struggles of the protagonist but everybody’s struggles who pass in the UPSC examinations’ says Vikrant Massey.
Vikrant says he is a 13th fail in his real life. ‘I may be 12th fail in this film. But in real life, I have studied till 13th class. By then I had started acting. So, I had to quit studies for my passion of acting. This role demanded a lot and I prepared for one and a half years extensively for this film and even stayed for 15 days in a village before joining the sets’ says the actor.
