New Delhi, Nov. 9 -- He was touted as the next big thing when he debuted with Ram Gopal Varma's Company (2002). However, after Shootout At Lokhandwala (2007), Vivek has had a string of flops to his name. But with Grand Masti and now Krrish 3, his career seems to be upward bound.
Do you feel vindicated with two back-to-back '100 crore grossers?
In a way, I do. I've always tried to do my kind of films and it's a great feeling to have a good run. It has been nothing less than a golden year for me.
Who from the industry supported you during your rough patch?
Hrithik (Roshan). At a time when I felt low, with my films turning out to be flops, he would say, 'Never stop believing in yourself. That made a world of difference.
Films apart, what's kept you motivated?
This year, my most satisfying gift has been my son, Vivaan Veer Oberoi. He is my superhero in a diaper. It's a great feeling to be a father. I'm not a superstitious guy, yet, I feel like I'm the luckiest person in this world because of him. His smile makes me forget the world outside. He takes away all stress and tension - that is his superpower.
