Mumbai: Actor Vivek Oberoi, who was away from the arc-lights last year, says that being offered a role in Krrish 2 was one of the most memorable moments of 2011 for him.
“A very special memory for me of 2011 was that I got a chance to be a part of such a big film, Krrish. The first time I went to meet Rakesh (Roshan) uncle in his office and he gave me the script. I read the script there in his office only. After reading the script, I went up to him, hugged him and received his blessings. Then I signed the film,” the 35-year-old actor said while talking about his performance at the Country Club of India on New Year’s Eve.
Meanwhile, Vivek has started shooting for his latest film Kismat Love Paisa Dilli with Mallika Sherawat. The film requires Vivek to spend a lot of time in the capital and the actor has called over his family to stay with him till the shoot schedule ends.
“I am very family-centric. So, I like living with my family. When I live in hotels, I miss that a lot. Hotels at the end of the day feel like a hotel. So, I prefer that where ever I go, I get an apartment or rent a place. So, I can call my entire family and it feels like home,” said Vivek, whose co-production Watch Indian Circus in 2011 won awards at the Busan International Film festival and the 47th Chicago International Film Festival.
After a dull 2011, the new year looks promising for Vivek who has Krrish 2 and Zilla Ghaziabad in his kitty.
Vivek debuted in 2002 with Company and his prominent films include Saathiya , Yuva, Masti and Omkara.
