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

This film is a dedication to all the students who dream, and to all the honest officers who are the backbone of our country and our law enforcement. Working with Vidhu Vinod Chopra is a dream come true and a big challenge because he is a very good director.”
