Vivek Oberoi has given tremendous performances in several films, whether it is a romantic character in the film, 'Saathiya' or a gangster in the film, 'Company.' Anyone could have judged his career after such successful hit films, but his life was more dramatic than any other television series masala drama. He has given award-winning performances, yet he was without for a period and faced several rejections. Still, he has stood strong and returned as a hero and given his best. In a recent interview, he opened up about his work-lacking days.
In an interview, he said he constructed the Meritocracy and faced rejections and a no-work environment even after delivering as an actor and a successful hit film. Lastly, he appeared in the film, 'Dharavi Bank.' He says, "I've tried not to; it's not that I've not done it. I've done it in the past and felt very disappointed in myself. I didn't like that because I was doing it on external advice, I was not listening to my heart. I don't do films for money, I do work for money, money is just the byproduct of art. For me, it’s pehle Saraswati uske baad mein Lakshmi. In cinema, I come from that culture. Everything I do, I try doing it consciously. After the success of Inside Edge, which offered me a new platform, I've been offered a show or film every month, every week. A kind of set-up had started building and I didn't want to get into the set-up spirit. I waited, from 2017 to 2022, in five-six years, I've only done Inside Edge 1,2 and 3, Dharavi Bank and now Rohit Shetty's Indian Police Force."
Vivek says his life has taught him several lessons, like not getting bound to the settle-up mentality and always trying to think out of the box. He mentions, "I've been very particular and very careful. Despite who's the producer or how big the set-up is, if I don't get a feeling, I say no. I think I have a commitment to my fans who've been there for me for 20 years through thick and thin. So, my commitment is that if excellence, at least I try. If I'm trying to do something new, I make it clear to them. If it doesn't work, then I apologize, and if it works, I say thank you. I've always been very transparent with the audience."
He was one of the early Bollywood stars who moved to the OTT platform, which is still looked down upon as the medium. He mentions that not his foresight but his open-mindedness landed him on that platform. Before other Bollywood actors, he also worked in Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu films.
