Vikrant Massey: Issue-based projects satisfy me

The actor who recently made his debut as an anchor with TV series Yeh Hai Aashiqui, has featured in social issue-based shows like Balika Vadhu and Baba Aiso Varr Dhoondo in the past

Vikrant Massey says issue-based projects give him satisfaction.

“It has been my constant effort that the issues and ideologies which I believe in, I bring them on TV through my craft – be it in Balika Vadhu, where I highlighted the concept of widow remarriage or be it Baba Aiso Varr… or be it Yeh Hai Aashiqui that I am doing now,” said Vikrant.

He spoke at the launch of an episode of Yeh Hai Aashiqui, which highlights a love affair of a sex-worker. Produced by BBC Worldwide and Lost Boy Productions, Yeh Hai Aashiqui airs on UTV Bindass. It deals with unconventional love stories and relationships that are considered taboo in the society. “I want to do shows which are different and this is not for doing TV shows only, but also films. I get a sense of satisfaction by doing such projects and things,” he added.

Besides daily soaps, Vikrant has been a part of Bollywood film Lootera. Currently, he is also seen in Zee TV’s show Qubool Hai in a key role.
