Vikrant Massey is currently enjoying a great run in his career, thanks to the huge success of his recent film, 12th Fail. Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the movie received praise from both critics and audiences. Riding on this success, the actor has now signed up for The Sabarmati Report, a film produced by Ektaa Kapoor. Just a month after this announcement, Vikrant has once again impressed his fans by revealing the release date of the film through a clip on his social media platform.

Vikrant Massey starrer The Sabarmati Report's Teaser out

On February 27, Vikrant Massey and the creators of The Sabarmati Report took to their individual social media handles and dropped a video clip introducing fans to the world of his upcoming film. The video clip features the actor playing the role of a Hindi journalist, Samar Kumar, who is sitting in a studio as he announces the news on February 27, 2002 when the Godhra accident happened.

“Paying homage to the 59 innocent people who lost their lives in the Godhra train burning incident 22 years ago, today. Presenting ‘The Sabarmati Report’, in cinemas on 3rd May, 2024,” reads the caption alongside the post.

Take a look:


Additionally, the video teaser emphasizes Vikrant's character being singled out for speaking Hindi but then being permitted to proceed with the news. The most striking moment in the teaser is when he mentions the Sabarmati Express fire incident was not an accident, with tense music playing in the background and real-life visuals of the incident and news clips flashing as Vikrant's character experiences flashbacks.


The video concludes with a text that again reads, “27th February 2002. Godhra, Gujarat. A homage to the 59 innocent lives burned to death. 22 years two official reports & multiple investigations later, The Sabarmati Report”.

Fans reaction to the teaser

Fans clearly couldn’t keep calm after the release of the video teaser and heaped appreciation in the comments section. A fan wrote, “Vikrant bhai is here for another banger of a performance,” and another fan remarked, “Each of your movies is very informative,” while a third fan exclaimed, “Another feather to the cap such a versatile performance,” and another fan expressed excitement while he wrote, “Will go watch this movie, only to see you act.”

Apart from Vikrant Massey, helmed by Ranjan Chandel, the film will also star Raashii Khanna and Ridhi Dogra in important roles.

Exclusive details about The Sabarmati Report

It is worth mentioning that Pinkvilla was the first one to exclusively inform you that Vikrant has come on board Ekta R Kapoor’s political thriller. A source close to the development had also shared that Vikrant and the director will also be doing acting workshops for the film. “It’s as hard-hitting as it gets and has all the scope for performance.

Vikrant, Ekta, and Ranjan have had multiple meetings over the last few months and are all ready to take the film on floors within the next few months,” the source had shared.
