Vivek to do dark intense love story with Balaji

By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, Oct 15 Actor Vivek Oberoi will be seen in filmmaker Ekta Kapoor's upcoming film, a dark intense love story. "I have signed it actually (with Balaji Telefilms). I don't think they have made an official announcement about it. All I can say is the film is a dark, intense and
interesting love story. I can't talk much about it as it is too early," Vivek told PTI.

Vivek's recent release Kismat Luv Paisa Dilli with Mallika Sherawat did not do well at the box office. However, the 36-year-old actor has a host of films in pipeline including Krrish 3 with Hrithik Roshan, Zilla Ghaziabad alongside Sanjay Dutt, Sher again with Dutt and Grand Masti, a sequel to the 2004 film Masti.

"I have nine films or so in hand. Jayanta Bhai Ki Love Story is about a goon falling in love, Sher is set in the 60s and is based in Gujarat. It is about gold smuggling. Zilla Ghaziabad is out-an-out action film. In Krrish 3 I am playing a super villain," Vivek said.

"I am doing one film with Balaji and another with Tips company. I feel I am doing good work. I am very much happy," he said.

Vivek feels this is the happiest phase of his life professionally as well as personally.

"I surely feel it is the happiest phase of my life. I have never been so mentally sorted and happy. I have my wife to thank for that. The day I got married I felt there is so much more to life," Vivek said.

"Now that I am going to become a father, the excitement is at its highest. I want to take her out for a romantic holiday while she is expecting," he said.

Vivek had earlier turned co-producer for Dekh Indian Circus that had Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tannishtha Chatterjee in the lead roles. The film won award at the 16th Busan Film Festival and 12th annual New York Indian Film Festival.

On if he will produce more films now, Vivek says, "I think I will produce as many films as I can. Films that I like to make, small and different kind of."

When asked if he will act in the films that he will back, the actor says, "May be I will, may be I won't, that is the beauty of life. There are no rules, no decisions."
