Bol­ly­wood has roles for ev­ery­one: Vivek

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.”
