Vikrant Massey: Life beyond Balika…

He plays the manipulative and street smart Shyam in the popular television show Balika Vadhu, but the role, Vikrant Massey says, came to him purely by chance.
"I had worked with this production house (Sphere Origins) five years ago, when I shot an episode of Don with them. Then, just when I had completed work on Dharam Veer, I got a call for Balika Vadhu. They must have kept me in mind since then," he says.

The offer, he adds, actually caught him off guard. "After doing Dharam Veer, I had a near-death experience. I almost drowned on the sets once, and after that I just wanted to take a break and rest for a while.

"Balika happened in the middle of that and I was not mentally prepared for it. However, the production crew and the rest of the team have been great and really accommodating so far."

In Balika, Vikrant plays a character from the village, but says he didn't find it hard adapting to the role. "Yes, he is from the village, but in the show, my character is the only one who is educated. That's one reason I took on the role... I could relate to him, understand his motives."

He is understandably pleased with how things have gone. "I am really grateful to the almighty for the roles I've been offered... Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Ki Jo, Chittor Ki Rani Padmini and Saat Phere. But Balika I feel was in my destiny and I'm really happy with what I have today."

So any Bollywood plans? "Well, every actor wants to get into films, it is the ultimate destination. Even I want to do that, but only when I know something substantial is up," says the actor who idolises Irrfan Khan and Pankaj Kapoor. "I have never worked for money; I don't work for money and will never work for money."

So what does Vikrant do when he is not acting? "Actually, I also write scripts. I get all these ideas at three o'clock in the morning and I keep penning those down so that I can use them in the future."

On the personal front, he admits that his break-up with Sriti Jha was tough, but added that he held no grudges. "My relationship with her came to an end around eight to nine months ago. These experiences makes you stronger, wiser and more practical towards life. It was very difficult for me to cope as we had been seeing each other since school, so the end was bound to be painful. But it's OK, I wish her all the best."
