Vivek shows his bad side
Krrish is a new high for the actor and this time he has his mouth shut and his tact well in place…
Once upon a time Vivek Oberoi was slated to be a star, but a series of bad choices in films and a few badly timed personal issues sabotaged his blooming career. But after a long time in the filmi wilderness, he bounced back with a good performance as a bad man in Shootout at Lokhandwala. And he is, to a great extent, back in business, new wife, new attitude and new resolve firmly rooted. He has Zilla Ghaziabad in his now carefully chosen roster, and in this one he plays Satbir Gujjar, the most educated gangster in Indian history , a man loved by the public and feared by his enemies. But more exciting for Vivs is Krrish 2 - a follow-up to Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish - with Hrithik Roshan in the lead and Vivek as the baddie. And while we heard from our resident birdie that the villain is actually stuck in a wheelchair for the first half of the film, all we can get out of the actor is that “He’s like a crazy, comic book villain.” And he is very happy playing that part, he insists. Now we can’t wait to see what this one will be like!
