Though Vivek Oberoi was a late entrant to Bollywood, as compared to his much senior colleague Salman Khan, there are many similarities between the two. They both made a stunning entry into Bollywood with their respective projects, COMPANY and MAINE PYAR KIYA (though Salman's debut was with BIWI HO TO AISI). The ups and downs in their career and personal lives have been quite similar and coincidentally due to the same individual!
In fact, last year saw both Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi overcoming their personal traumas and come up trumps via PARTNER and SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA respectively, it got their careers back on track, and that too in a lean 2007.
However, it seems that fate has something else in common for both of them. Yes, two very important projects of their lives, Salman Khan's GOD TUSSI GREAT HO and Vivek Oberoi's MISSION ISTANBUL are both listed for release on 11th July 2008. While release dates are unstable like nascent oxygen, here's wishing both of them another similar fate, that is big success!
