Vikrant Massey, who rose to prominence with his performance in Mirzapur, is back on the big screen with his upcoming film 12th Fail. Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the film is based on Anurag Pathak's book of the same name and also stars the debutant, Medha Shankar. Massey is portraying IPS Manoj Kumar Sharma on the screen. 

In a conversation with IndiaTV, the actor opened up about becoming a father for the first time. For those who have sneered at the entertainment pages all along, Vikrant Massey is going to be a father soon. Speaking about if he has any inhibitions and apprehensions over welcoming a newborn, the actor said, "Not at all. No inhibitions, no apprehensions, no nervousness also. I mean, it's nature and it will take its own course. Aap kuch nahi kar sakte hain."

I can proudly say that. There's a common perception that films based on books are not as good as those books. However, I am saying it with utmost confidence that we have taken the film forward."
