Vikrant Massey on the importance of box office numbers to get next film

Talking about whether the box office numbers of his film influence the chances of his next film Vikrant Massey said, "For me at least, that's not how it is. I've just tasted box office success. That was not the case 6 months ago, so a lot of what I've been doing, I've retained that and I aspire to retain that going forward."


"It's great, it's definitely impetus for you to better yourself because people have shelled out their hard-earned money to go to the theaters and watch you. But does that dictate my future decisions? I don't think so. The way I choose my scripts, the way I go out there and perform in front of the camera between action and cut remains more or less the same." he added.
