The interview, published on an online portal, Vikrant Massey revealed that boys need to accept rejection with much more maturity. He, who plays an important role in Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, believes faltered parenting and male ego is the stem to the rising acid attacks in the country.

He further said that the majority of acid attackers are boys, who get rejected by a girl. Vikrant Massey, who will be sharing the screen space with Deepika Padukone, for the first time, felt enamoured by Padukone's energy on set and dedication. Chhapaak, that narrates the tale of Malti, an acid attack survivor, is slated to hit the marquee on January 10, 2020.
