Actor Vikrant Massey has become an internet sensation after the release of his latest film, 12th Fail, which was been a sleeper hit. The movie, with Vikrant Massey playing the title role and Vidhu Vinod Chopra directing it, has received an independent Oscar nomination. Prior to appearing on Sahitya AajTak 2023, Vikrant himself confirmed this.

On Sahitya AajTak, Vikrant discussed the difficulties he faced in films. In an interview on IndiaToday, Vikrant said that he began his film career at the age of 15 because he had to find a job. He was clear that he didn't want his father to bear the financial burden of his tuition.

All the reviews for 12th Fail were positive upon its release. At the early screenings, the movie was hailed as 'The Best Film of the Year 2023' and was met with standing ovations. Vidhu Vinod Chopra and the producers now plan to submit the movie to the Oscars, taking into account the overwhelmingly good reviews from all quarters.

Thinking back on the movie's triumph, Vikrant had earlier expressed gratitude to audiences as they left theatres. Even though he is the main protagonist of the movie, he gave credit to the entire cast for its success. The actor also revealed that he was under a lot of pressure to perform well in the movie.
