Mallika Sherawat requested Vivek to strip

Barring a few movies like Omkara and Shootout At Lokhandwala, Vivek Oberoi has mostly been seen in romantic movies. However, the actor is all set for a new innings in Bollywood with an array of different roles.

Ask him what he was busy doing during his long sabbatical from movies, and he is quick to reply, “I am getting back to the professional grind. But the long sabbatical was needed. When I met Priyanka, I wanted to get married to her as soon as possible. She was living in Bangalore and I was in Mumbai, and we could hardly meet and we missed the courting period. So, I started courting her after we got married. It was the other way round. I took time off and travelled around the world with her.”

As of now, Vivek has more than five films in his kitty and is excited about his future projects. But he reveals that it’s been tough work preparing to strip for his upcoming film, Kismat Love Paisa Dilli (KLPD). He has been hitting the gym regularly to pump up his muscles. Has his co-star Mallika Sherawat, with her super-toned body, been an inspiration? “No. She wasn’t the inspiration, but definitely the person who requested me to strip,” says Vivek with a hearty laugh, but hastily adds, “I am just kidding. Of course, it was the demand of the script and I am going to be at my best.”

That’s not all. All set to play a baddie in Krrish 3, Vivek aims to create a sensation with his new avatar, which he terms as the ‘super villain’. “Everybody is familiar with the concept of a superhero, but what I’m playing is a super villain. He will be the most interesting negative character that has ever been played in Hindi cinema,” claims the actor.

Of late, there have been reports that Vivek, who enjoys writing poems, might pen a few poems for his upcoming film Zilla Ghaziabad. However, Vivek denies it outright. “No way; poetry is something very personal. I do pen down my emotions, but only when something inspires me or influences my views about society, my emotional experiences. Right now, I don’t feel like writing for a film,” he clarifies. But Vivek definitely has plans of becoming a full-time poet one day. “When I grow old, I’ll sit in my rocking chair and write poems,” he laughs.
