Be it Maya Bhai from Shootout at Lokhandwala, gangster-turned-politician Pratap Ravi in Rakht Charitra, gangster Chandu in Company or the evil Kaal in the superhero franchise Krrish 3, Vivek Oberoi has always managed to pull off grey characters with élan.
Making bad look so good, the versatile actor is back in the grey zone this year as he will be portraying two distinct characters, something that nobody has seen before.
Vivek will be seen locking horns with Ajith Kumar in the biggest Tamil film this year, Vivegam and will also be making his debut on the digital platform with his much-awaited web series, Excel Entertainment’s Power Play to be released globally on Amazon, in which he plays the pivotal character.
The kind of response and reactions Vivek has received for anti-hero roles has been unprecedented. While he enjoys doing comedies as well, he finds negative characters or roles with grey shades more challenging that are drastically different from the kind of person he is in real life.
