CONFIRMED: Vikrant Massey signs Meghna Gulzar’s next opposite Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone’s next, titled Chhapaak (the sound of splash) has been in the news for a while, mainly because it will break Padukone’s sabbatical after Padmaavat. The actress is supposed to start filming for the Meghna Gulzar film early next year.

While rumours were doing the round that Rajkummar Rao has been approached for the film and will be doing it, turns out, Vikrant Massey has signed on the dotted line already. Massey rose to fame and into notice with Konkona Sensharma’s A Death In The Gunj and will now play the leading man in Gulzar’s Laxmi Agrawal biopic. Our sources inform that he’ll be playing the role of Alok Dixit, Agrawal’s partner.
