It so happened that my friend informed me that he is launching a regional movie and would I like to act in it? I immediately agreed to do the regional movie in Bhojpuri language titled “Hamar the love story” with Monalisa and many other bollywood actors.
Vikrant further added that he had learnt a lot by doing regional films.. Many people say that one should not do regional movies as it doesn’t have any scope. But according to Vikrant, as an actor one shouldn’t let any offer go from our hand .
