Vikrant Masset was recently seen in Forensic alongside Radhika Apte and in Love Hostel with Sanya Malhotra and Bobby Deol.

This film is a tribute to all the students who dream, and to all the honest officers who are the backbone of our country and our constitution. Working with Vidhu Vinod Chopra is a dream come true and a huge challenge as he is such a solid director.”
