During a conversation with Mashable India, Vikrant Massey recalled the time when he was at a restaurant’s washroom queue in Mumbai and was approached for a show. “I was standing in the queue of the washroom and this woman approached me. She asked, ‘Will you act?’” he said.
Vikrant further said, “I spoke to them and they asked me to come to their office. When I went, they said I will get paid ₹6000 per episode, and I will shoot 4 episodes in a month so I immediately calculated ₹24,000. I said alright. I always wanted to be an actor. It wasn’t like I heard about the money and jumped at it. I thought I might as well learn on the job.”
