Filmfare Exclusive Vikrant Massey takes the 3 things during lockdown

He was a big sensation on primetime television before he moved to the big screen with Lootera in 2013. Later, Vikrant Massey proved his mettle with films like A Death In The Gunj and his last release, Chhapaak. His upcoming projects include Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, Haseen Dilrooba and Ginny Weds Sunny. 

Locked up at home during quarantine, Vikrant is spending his time watching movies and shows, cooking and realising the importance of life outside the confines of the home. Catching up with the actor, we play a quick round of the “Three things” lockdown version with him. Find out what he had to say…

 

3 books you wouldn’t mind being locked down with…

We don’t tend to keep reading the same books.

But authors I don’t mind reading would be Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgård,  American author Bill Bryson, a wonderful author who makes you laugh and Kushwant Singh. These are three writers I do not mind reading more than once.

3 things you’ve watched during the lockdown…

I have watched a lot of films during the lockdown. I watched Thappad, the series, Money Heist and The Vikings. I watched English Medium and then revisited Irrfan Khan saab’s Paan Singh Tomar. 

 

3 songs you’ve heard the most during this time…

Three songs I have heard the most in my life would be any Michael Jackson songs. I know the lyrics by heart. I also love George Micheal songs and those by the Backstreet Boys. I hear these often.

3 people you’ve talked to the most since the lockdown started…

I talk to my girlfriend Sheetal (Thakur) regularly, my mom and dad. Also, to my close-knit group of friends.

 

3 people you will meet as soon as the lockdown is over…

My brother, my mother and my father.

3 outfits that define your lockdown…

Shorts and t-shirt, a plain white cotton kurta and pyjama. I specify 100 per cent cotton because it’s important during summers. I also wear shorts with a sleeveless ganji. 

 

3 dishes you’ve eaten the most during this time…

Kheer, basic chicken gravy and dal chawal. 

 

3 dishes you miss the most…

Mutton, palak paneer and rajma chawal, all made by my mother. 

 

3 places you wish to visit as soon as this is over…

I was to go to London and Scotland for a brief holiday. Once we can travel, I would want to do that. Also, Goa. I’ve missed the place badly. I miss the salt in the air. I’d like to take off to the hills because it’s too hot around.

3 things you realised you were taking for granted before quarantine…

Life in general. We were also taking hygiene  lightly. So much can happen by just washing hands. The value of health and life and the possibility of it being normal again. We’ve come to realise that this world can practise religion without worship places being open. The world can function without wars.
