In an interview with PTI, Massey mentioned like a lot of his contemporaries, he has a plan for his profession however he’s not “chasing” it.
“In bits and pieces, yes (I have a plan). Nobody survives without a plan, but I”m not chasing the plan now. Now, that”s the thin line. If I want to break it down, my plan is to go out there and entertain people with good performances…
“But I have been right here and not using a plan and really early in my life, I realised this factor that how can my plans be better than his plans, whoever is up there,” the actor said.
Massey said his journey in life and cinema has been beautiful so far.

Massey alternative of roles — be it the kindhearted Rana in “Dil Dhadakne Do”; bullied Shutu in “A Death in the Gunj”; activist Amol in “Chhapaak” or the reluctant gangster Bublu Pandit in “Mirzapur” — have at all times struck the appropriate chord.

The actor is happy that the film, written by Navjot Gulati and Sumit Arora and directed by Puneet Khanna, has been received well by the viewers.
“I suppose it was destined to be this manner. With this pandemic, the final seven months have been so tough for the general public out and so to have an out-and-out, straightforward breezy household entertainer is sweet for them.
