Hindi film and Tv actor Vikrant Massey says you need talent to survive in Bollywood

Vikrant Massey is one of those rare actors who has regularly appeared in films and TV shows alike. Massey has appeared in films like Half Girlfriend and Lootera in various supporting roles. Massey has also played pivotal roles in hit shows like Balika Vadhu and Qubool Hai. Now in a recent interview, Vikrant has said that he noticed nepotism in the industry early on in his career. However, he believes people with real talent can surely survive in Bollywood.

 
In an interview with PTI Vikrant said, "While doing television, I had seen this thing and a lot of people had made me aware about it. I knew it would take ten to 11 years for me to re-establish myself in film. I was willing to do it because I know I possess something which is unique and it is being recognised. It is a paradoxical situation today, nepotism is there but ultimately, survival is because of talent,".
 
"I was doing TV from the age of 17... compromised on my college attendance, did distant education, the reason for all of it was money. After working in TV for 10 years I felt I had earned a lot of money... it was a big decision to quit TV, " he added.
 
He continued saying, "The kind of films I am getting, I feel good. But even today, I feel I haven't even started doing the kind of work I want to do... I want to consistently deliver good performances and build trust in my writer."
 
Massey has multiple films coming up in the future including Pahwa's family drama "Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi", Kadav's sci-fi film "Cargo", and the comedy satire "Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare."
