Vikrant Massay better known as Dharam of Dharam Veer does not want to be a part of this NDTV Imagine period drama beyond this year.

“I have told the creatives that I don’t want to renew my contract which expires at the end of the year”, quips the young lad. He is not happy with the lack of attention given to his character despite it being a lead. “I was promised a much better deal in the beginning, but as the show proceeded I was sidelined”, says Vikrant.
 
His frustration can be clearly seen when he says that he really does not care if the channel is trying to cash in on the name and image of Rajat Tokas. “I am quite happy even I get one scene in a single episode”, maintains the actor.

However Producer Moti Sagar denies Vikrant’s allegation saying that, “We have always given both Dharam and Veer equal importance. In fact he should be grateful to us for giving him such an important break. Had we wanted, we could have kept the name just as Veer and still brought him in”. Mr. Moti also rejected the charge of cashing in on Rajat’s name and fame. “The show is such that at times Dharam is in the forefront and at times it is Veer”, he added.

Life some how has been unfair to Vikrant for his very first show ‘Kahan Hoon Main’ which he shot for about 4 and a half years back is finally airing, but at an unearthly hour of 2 am on Star Plus. He had played an invisible guy in the ill fated show which had to be wound up in just 13 episodes instead of the stipulated 60.

Since then he has done an episodic in Don, a character role in Raaz Ki Ek Baat on DD and a parallel lead in Dhoom Machale Dhoom on Disney.
