“I Am Only Doing Stuff That Excites Me” Says Vivek Oberoi
Vivek Oberoi states that he is ready to work on a “superficial movie” without emotion or depth and is completely “trippy”. He added that he loves movie ideas and screenplays. In a new interview, Vivek Oberoi talked about the different types of work he chose.
Vivek is now seen in Inside Edge. The third season of the series launched on Amazon Prime last week, with Richa chadha playing the leading role.
Talking about how he recently chose different projects, Vivek Oberoi, said, “I am only doing stuff that excites me. Or stuff that makes me feel like, ‘This is a kick, I want to do it’. I am doing a film which I will be shooting in England in the first quarter of next year. It is a full trip. It is a trippy movie, and it is completely superficial. It has got no depth, no emotion, but it is a trip. And, I just love it, I just love the script, I love the idea and I was like, ‘Let us take something trivial like this and let us have fun making a movie’.” He added that he is doing stuff that is at different ends of the spectrum.
He also shared some details about his upcoming show with Sunil Shetty, “I am super excited about the stuff that I am doing right now. I am shooting this very interesting show for MX Player called Dharavi Bank and my character, Jayant Gavaskar, is also a fascinating character. It is not something I have played before. It is the protagonist of the show and Anna, Suniel Shetty, is the antagonist. I absolutely love him (Suniel). It is a love-hate relationship with him. I love him in real life and hate him onscreen,” he said.
When asked if he wanted to play a character other than his own on the inside edge, Vivek said: “That’s like taking a kid to a candy store and asking him to pick one. I am a hungry actor. I am constantly thinking of characters. Now, as I grow into being a producer, being a writer myself – I have been creatively writing so much content. I am also realising that I often feel that as an actor I would love to play a role, ‘But I am not the best fit for the part’. ‘Maybe this part should be played by this actor.’ I am kind of growing up, in a way, in that journey too. I can say ‘This actor suits better for this role, and this story’. I know I want to do everything as an actor but I can’t, I will pick and choose the right ones.”
