'Krrish 3' role chance of a lifetime: Vivek Oberoi
New Delhi: Vivek Oberoi's super villain look in sci-fi franchise 'Krrish 3' has been kept under wraps but the actor, who has not tasted success at the box office for sometime, is confident that the role will be a game changer for him.
"It's once in a life time character. He is a super villain and an aristocratic prince of darkness. He hates human race because he is not accepted in the society. His vengeance is so strong that he has created his own universe to fight against them. It's one of the scariest baddies onscreen," Vivek told PTI in an interview.
The 37-year-old actor said he did not face any problem in playing a dark role because he feels he got maximum appreciation from audience by portraying such edgy roles in films like 'Company' and 'Shootout at Lokhandwala'.
"I enjoy doing such characters. I am constantly looking for roles which are new for me and challenging to do. With 'Krish 3' I jumped at it. I was very impressed with the script and character," said Vivek, who was here to support a cause for underprivileged girls in Vrindavan.
Directed by Rakesh Roshan, the film will see Hrithik and Priyanka reprising their roles while Kangana Ranaut is the new addition. It is slated to hit theatres this Diwali.
Vivek designed the look and mannerism of his character in the film and he opted not to watch any sci-fi film to bring originality to the role.
"I wanted to stay away from taking any inspiration from other films because I felt there will be no originality. It is a tricky character. Rakesh uncle gave me enough space to experiment with my role. It's my interpretation right from its costume to mannerism," he said.
