Recently, locals of Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar were overwhelmed when they saw actor Vikrant Massey shooting on the street of the area. Vikrant was there to film his next, 12th Fail, which is directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

Although it is not rare for a Hindi film to be shot in Delhi, this was the first time a film was being shot in the Mukherjee Nagar area.

According to the makers, Mukherjee Nagar is the perfect location for the film, because it is the hub of Hindi-medium UPSC preparation centres. Inspired by real-life stories, 12th Fail is about aspiring IAS and IPS students.

Fans went crazy watching Vikrant shoot in their area, that too as a commoner among them. The actor greeted the locals with love, while the director had to wiggle his way out through the bustling crowd after the shoot.

The first schedule of 12th Fail wrapped up in Chambal, after which the cast and crew moved to Delhi’s Mukherjee Nagar for the second schedule.

This is the first time that Vikrant is working with Chopra, who is a National Award-winning filmmaker, known for delivering some of the iconic films of Hindi cinema, including Parinda, 1942: A Love Story and Eklavya: The Royal Guard.

Chopra has also produced commercially successful films like Munna Bhai MBBS, Parineeta, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, 3 Idiots and PK, under his banner, Vinod Chopra Films.

Vikrant is known for his performances in films like A Death In The Gunj, Haseen Dilruba, and web series like Mirzapur, Broken But Beautiful, and Criminal Justice.

12th Fail is all set to release in the summer of 2023.
