Ac­tor Vivek Oberoi (top) be­lieves in do­ing things dif­fer­ently and that’s why, when most ac­tors take in­spi­ra­tion from in­ter­na­tional artists and trends, he de­cided to fol­low his fa­ther Suresh

Oberoi’s (be­low) foot­steps. The 40-year-old, who will play the role of a cop in his next film, will sport a thick mous­tache in it. For his char­ac­ter, Vivek wanted to look tough and re­alised that his fa­ther’s dis­po­si­tion from his yes­ter­year films would be per­fect. “My fa­ther has played the role of a po­lice of­fi­cer in sev­eral films. I was in­spired by his tow­er­ing per­son­al­ity, his rich bari­tone, and the ex­e­cu­tion of th­ese roles. Since I play a cop in my next, watch­ing few of his films helped,” says Vivek.

Ac­cord­ing to a source, Vivek dis­cussed this idea with his fa­ther, who was sur­prised to know that his ca­sual look had in­spired him so much that Vivek de­cided to em­u­late his style.
