12th Fail

Helmed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, 12th Fail revolves around UPSC aspirants and is based on real-life experiences. The film highlights the struggles of millions of students, who attempt the UPSC entrance exam and chronicles the life of Manoj Kumar Sharma (played by Vikrant), who overcame poverty to become an IPS officer.

When Kangana called Vikrant ‘cockroach’

In 2021, Kangana had called Vikrant a ‘cockroach’ after he playfully called his friend, Himachali actor Yami Gautam ‘Radhe Maa’ in one of the pictures from her wedding with Aditya Dhar. Reacting to this, fellow Himachali, Kangana was annoyed at him and had called Vikrant names on Instagram, which grabbed everyone's attention.

After Yami had posted photos of her all-red bridal look, Vikrant teased her and commented, “Pure and pious like Radhe Maa.” Kangana was rather offended and wrote back, "Kahan se nikla ye cockroach. Laao meri chappal (Where did this cockroach come from, bring my slippers).”

Talking about the incident, Vikrant had later told Bollywood Bubble, “I really don’t pay attention to all these things. I try to very consciously negate toxicity in my life. That’s why I don’t go to Twitter much and I have been very vocal about it. That is one of the worst public discourse platforms that we have. But individually, I generally don’t tend to pay attention to these things. So, to wrap it up I will quietly quote one of my favourite writers Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. You really pray for the ignorant. The only thing you can do for the ignorant and unaware is to pray for better sense and wish them the best in life.”

Meanwhile, Kangana will be next seen in Emergency. It stars her as former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. It also marks her official solo directorial debut.
