Bollywood has roles for everyone: Vivek
Actor Vivek Oberoi (right) says Bollywood is a dynamic industry and has enough work for everyone. “With so many people (actors) around, it is not difficult to get exciting work. “
He explains with an example, “Like (actor) Riteish Deshmukh is known for comic roles but he was approached to play a villain and he was brilliant in Ek Villain (2014).”
Oberoi feels, despite the competition, actors should appreciate each other’s work. “We should celebrate the good work of others,” says the actor.
The 39-year-old’s latest film, third in the Masti franchise, brings back the essence of Masti (2004) — the first part in the franchise, says Oberoi.
“I told (director) Indra Kumar that I’d have preferred to retain the spirit of Masti. It was a conscious decision to bring the third part closer to first one so we brought this element of ghost. The three guys who were behind this girl try to run away when they learn she is a ghost. It’s all situational humour,” he says. The film also stars Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani and Urvashi Rautela.
Recently, the actor also announced that he will undergo a supervised physical transformation, and also train in voice modulation to sound every bit the gangster-turnedbusinessman in his upcoming film.
“From adopting a disciplined diet, he is also training in getting the right South-Indian accent.”
