For one, there’s Vivek Oberoi who will take the plunge soon. Having played characters with grey shades like Chandu from ‘Company’, Maya Dolas from ‘Shootout At Lokhandwala’ or Kaal from ‘Krrish 3’ with great aplomb on screen, the actor will be once again seen playing a powerful character with grey shades in his next, a web series based on IPL cricket.
Vivek is said to play the central character in the series and everything rotates around him. When Vivek heard the script, his character reminded him of Hollywood star Kevin Spacey’s performance from ‘House Of Cards’. Vivek has always been a huge fan of Kevin and his character from ‘House Of Cards’, so when this character came to him, he thought of incorporating some elements from Kevin’s character from the film, says a source.
Vivek says, “I am a fan of Kevin Spacey’s work and I enjoy watching ‘House Of Cards’…I think I could incorporate a lot of his character in the show into my performance in this particular role which again is very sharp and powerful.”
