Vivek Oberoi’s flagging career is likely to receive a shot in the arm. Unconfirmed reports suggest that the Saathiya star has bagged the role to play the notorious baddie in Rakesh Roshan’s next, after Koi… Mil Gaya and Krrish .
While Hrithik Roshan will pick up where he left off in Krrish, there were more than one actors who were rumoured to have bagged the role.
We hear the role was first offered to Ajay Devgn. As per a source, the role demanded “an ultra-cool, stylish person with gray shades. He is intelligent, edgy, witty, smart and evil – somewhat like the Joker in the Batman series. It is a complete contrast to anything Ajay has ever done before.”
Apparently, King Khan’s friendship with Hrithik Roshan gave him an advantage and pitted him as a promising contender.
Even Rana Daggubati was rumoured to be confirmed, but the unlikely Vivek piped him.
Reports also say that Deepika Padukone will be taken on as the female lead in the next of the superhero series. But so far no one has signed any binding agreements.
Fingers crossed Vivek, this could be the opportunity you have been looking for.
