12th Fail: Real UPSC professor Vikas Divyakirti on acting in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s film: “For the first time, Hindi cinema has tried…”

en Bollywood News 12th Fail: Real UPSC professor Vikas Divyakirti on acting in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s film: “For the first time, Hindi cinema has tried…”

On the occasion of World Teacher's Day, UPSC professor Vikas Divyakirti shared his thoughts on Vidhu Vinod Chopra's next 12th Fail, in which he also played a pivotal rol.

On this World Teachers' Day (celebrated globally on October 5th), an interesting trivia has come to light about director Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s 12th Fail starring Vikrant Massey. For the critical role of a teacher in the film, Chopra has chosen a real-life professor and mentor, Vikas Divyakirti, who has guided countless students in their pursuit of clearing the Union Public Service Commission's entrance exam - including the real Manoj Sharma, who’s life has inspired the film.

Vikas Divyakirti is widely recognised and respected for mentoring students for the rigorous UPSC examination. Now, he joins a select group of individuals who have played themselves on the big screen.

Reflecting on his experience of portraying a professor on the silver screen, Vikas expresses his gratitude, stating, "This is a historic occasion. Perhaps for the first time, Hindi cinema has tried to touch the pulse of Hindi society at such a deep level. The story of Manoj Sharma, who became IPS despite once failing in 12th class, actually shakes every person who has accepted failure as his destiny in life. The film forces him to give himself another chance, to 'restart' his journey!”

The trailer features Vikrant Massey in the lead and has glimpses of the protagonist’s journey from a small village in Chambal to the bustling nerve centre of UPSC preparation in Delhi’s Mukherjee Nagar. Based on a real story, the movie draws from the gritty struggles of millions of students who attempt the UPSC entrance exam. But at the same time, it goes beyond that one exam and encourages people to not lose heart in the face of failures and to keep fighting.

12th Fail, a film by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, is set to release worldwide on October 27 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.
