Playing super villain in 'Krrish 3' fearless decision: Vivek
New Delhi: Vivek Oberoi believes his decision to experiment with edgy roles in 'Shootout at Lokhandwala' and in 'Krrish 3' comes from his quest to becoming a fearless actor.
Vivek, 37, who essayed the super villain Kaal in 'Krrish 3' opposite Hrithik Roshan, said for an actor it takes some amount of courage to opt for a negative role especially when one has an image of a "hero" in the movies.
"When you have the image of a hero, a lead man in the movies, I think it becomes a brave and fearless decision to take on a super villain role. It took a lot of courage from my side. I always wanted to be a fearless actor. While doing 'Company', people said you should be doing something different like a love story or a launch pad film," Vivek told us.
"But, it was a brave choice to do that film because I had to turn myself as a dark character. People appreciated that. Every time I have made these fearless choices in my life, I think I have done well," he added.
Helmed by Rakesh Roshan, 'Krrish 3' saw Hrithik reprising his role as the superhero after 'Koi... Mil Gaya' and 'Krrish'. The film also stars Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut.
Vivek, who found the role challenging, is euphoric about the success of the movie.
"It is definitely the most challenging role in my career. It was a very difficult role to pull. It was a not a very easy task for me. The kind of response and craze I'm getting from people which is something like redefining the Indian villain, it's quite fabulous," he added.
Vivek is planning to celebrate his success by going on a holiday with his wife Priyanka Alva and his around 9-month-old son Vivaan.
The actor feels that it has been a lucky year for him because he became a father, saw the success of 'Grand Masti' and enjoyed his stint as one of the judges with Sonali Bendre and Anurag Basu in hit TV show 'India's Best Dramebaaz'.
"It has been a dream run, a golden run for me. My TV show was a big hit. This year's 'Grand Masti' earned 112 crores. And 'Krrish 3' looks positive to hit really high numbers. All thanks to the blessings of my family, the good wishes of my fans and my son. I think his coming has changed my life forever," he said.
