Boman Irani pens a long note praising Vikrant Massey, Vidhu Vinod Chopra for 12th Fail: “You have inspired a whole bunch of young actors, me included”

On Thursday, February 8, the 3 Idiots actor wrote an elaborate note to Vikrant Massey, which recently earned him a Best Actor award at the Filmfare Awards 2024. The caption read, "You heard it before Vikrant Massey I know. Once more won't hurt.”

An excerpt reads, “You got it right Massey.. The truth is, the real preparation happens inside the soul of the character... You can't rehearse for that, can you ?  You can only live it through a belief that goes way beyond your stupendous external preparation for the role. You don't have to do for the camera. You have to be in front of the camera..."

He added, “You can't rehearse for that, can you? You can only live it through a belief that goes way beyond your stupendous external preparation for the role. You don't have to DO for the camera, you have to BE in front of the camera. That is exactly what happened. More strength to you, Massey; you have inspired a whole bunch of young actors, me included.”

Boman Irani went on to praise 12th Fail director Vidhu Vinod Chopra, stating, "I would be remiss if I didn't mention the amazing, wise, and astute direction that may have mentored you through your journey..."

He concluded, “VVC, to whom I owe my career, has made a film that seemed like something a young, fiery filmmaker created. Not taking anything away from your work, Massey, but with VVC in top youthful form in your corner, you could not have asked for more. You got it right, Massey. The movie was about honesty, and that's exactly what every angle of your face and eyes displayed.”

To this, Vikrant replied, “I’m extremely touched by your words Sir. Thank you for showering me and our film with such wonderfully warm words. We don’t just read them, but feel them deep within. Thank you for your generosity.”

12th Fail, based on a true story, draws from the struggles of the millions of students who attempt the UPSC entrance exam. But at the same time, it goes beyond that one exam and encourages people not to lose heart in the face of failure and to restart.
