Vikrant Massey in Blackout

Vikrant Massey starrer comedy-thriller Blackout is streaming on Jio Cinema. Blackout takes you on a roller coaster ride of laughter and thrilling car sequences where Vikrant appears to be driving all night long. Sharing the insights into the challenges faced during the shoot, particularly highlighting the difficulties of night-time filming Vikrant says, “We had a lot of fun while shooting, but it was also a daunting task as we had to shoot all through the night. It was challenging as there’s heavy rainfall and your entire car is rigged. It’s very difficult to shoot sometimes when it’s raining heavily and you’re filming at night. Additionally, sometimes the wiper wouldn’t work. Every time before entering the car, I used to make a 360-degree check to ensure each camera was properly mounted and every piece of equipment was in place. The main stress was to protect the equipment.”

Massey adds, “It wasn’t challenging just for the actors but also for the crew because the whole night you’re shooting which is both mentally and physically exhausting and changes your body cycle. Road blocking, shooting action sequences, and crashing the cars was difficult.”

Vikrant expressed his reaction upon receiving the script, he says, “When I learned about the film and the person behind it, I was intrigued; I had a strong desire to meet him. I have heard of stories like this but never had a chance to work in such projects before, you don’t get to read such beautifully written characters. Devang has built quirky yet very realistic world. When we finally met, there was an instant connection; we both knew the direction we wanted to take. Shooting with him was a truly enjoyable experience.”
