VIVEK OBEROI,

Ac­tor Vivek Oberoi (above) is go­ing the Johnny Depp way. In­spired by the Hol­ly­wood ac­tor’s prep for his crit­i­cally­ac­claimed film, Black Mass (2015), Oberoi is work­ing hard to not just look but also sound like a dif­fer­ent per­son in his up­com­ing film, a gang­ster drama.

To play the tit­u­lar role of Muthappa Rai, the ac­tor will un­dergo a su­per­vised phys­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion, and also train in voice mod­u­la­tion to sound ev­ery bit the gang­ster-turned­busi­ness­man. He will en­rol in a voice mod­el­ling and mod­u­la­tion course.

This is the third time after Shootout at Lokhand­wala (2007) and Rakht Char­i­tra (2010) that Oberoi will play a gang­ster on screen.

“Di­a­logues and voice tone can make a huge dif­fer­ence in the char­ac­ters we play. I will try to dif­fer­en­ti­ate my­self in this film from the char­ac­ters I have played so far,” he says.

A source close to the project tells us, “This is a genre that au­di­ences love see­ing Vivek in, and he’s go­ing all out to get un­der the skin of his char­ac­ter. From adopt­ing a chal­leng­ing fit­ness regime and dis­ci­plined diet, he is also train­ing in voice mod­u­la­tion and ac­cent since Rai is known for his in­fa­mous in­tim­i­dat­ing southIn­dian ac­cent.”
