Vivek Oberoi?s portrayal as the dreaded gangster ?Maya Dolas? has been critically appreciated by the critics as well as the audience. SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA took the best opening of the year and is already being declared as a hit in the trade circles.
With the success of SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA, looks like Vivek's hard work and talent to understand the psychological traits and get into the skin of the character has paid off handsomely. Especially since he was playing the antagonist against the main protagonist Sanjay Dutt in the film.
Whenever Vivek has played a realistic character, the talented actor pulled it off effortlessly, be it his debut ground breaking performance in COMPANY or SATHIYA, YUVA, OMKARA.
Though Vivek missed the deserved applause, since he had to leave for the US, post the premiere, to perform at the Bollywood Award in New York, his thematic performance 'Shootout in New York' was a big hit too?
Vivek was back in town just before the release of a very special appearance in FOOL N FINAL. According to sources, Vivek considers Feroze Nadiadwala to be very close and readily obliged him when he was approached to do the special appearance in the film.
Though Vivek has been offered many films, he is taking his time to sign the right film, since he wants to be very selective in doing roles he believes in. .As he had rightly said, "In finding Maya, I have found myself."
Well the success of SHOOTOUT IN LOKHANDWALA only proves to trust his instincts and true calling!
