While it has just been revealed that Vivek Oberoi character in KRRISH 2 would be on lines of JOKER that was played by Heath Ledger in the last offering from the BATMAN franchise - THE DARK KNIGHT, there is more that our sources have managed to dig out. As per them, Vivek is taking a step forward in the Rakesh Roshan directed affair by learning how to gamble. Reason being that this is one of the core traits that his character carries in the film.
'Vivek likes preparing to the largest extent possible for his films, especially when they are character driven,' says a source, 'Remember how he made round of slums when he had to prepare for the role of 'Chandu' in his debut film COMPANY ? He maintained a scruffy look all the while since he wanted to make sure that his director Ram Gopal Verma was impressed enough with his preparation.'
'Now for KRRISH 2, he is playing the game no less,' he continues, 'It is the biggest film ever of his career and to make sure that Rakesh Roshan gives him brownie points before he hits the sets, Vivek is going all out in his preparation. He isn't taking the film lightly at all.'
To ensure that this indeed happens, Vivek is in fact maintaining a diary of his daily progress so that he masters at least on skill every two days.
'Yes, he is doing that and in fact more,' the source adds, 'Every day he makes sure to go through the bound script and note down the finer nuances in his diary. He is jotting his thoughts judiciously and formulating the character's psychology, body language and mannerisms. He has played a criminal before in quite a few films, the other notable flick being SHOOTOUT AT WADALA. However a criminal of the kind of intensity in KRRISH 2 is a different ball game altogether.'
Well Vivek, here is hoping that this intensity indeed comes alive on the big screen when we see you in KRRISH 2.
