Embracing the dark side


After playing a negative role in both Shandaar and Yariyaan, actor Vikas Verma revisited his inner fascination to play another negative character ‘Mom’. Talking about his allure for negative characters, Vikas says that they give him a chance to showcase his acting abilities on screen. “It’s not that I am fascinated with a negative image but I love doing something which is more challenging and out of the box. It’s very difficult to make people hate you. The satisfaction you get out of doing challenging things is immeasurable,” he says.

The actor played the role of Charles in the Sridevi starrer, which was directed by debutante director Ravi Udyawar. “These three films will be always special to me and close to my heart. Every film gave me a different experience, some unforgettable moments and beautiful memories to cherish forever. Like in Yaariyan, all of us bonded really well on the sets and shared a great rapport with each other. Shaandar was a totally different experience altogether. I got the opportunity to work with super talented actors of the industry like Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Pankaj sir, Sanjay sir,” he says.
