He says he likes to do one or two films a year

Vivek Oberoi, who has been acting for over 15 years and has been a part of memorable films such as “Company”, “Saathiya” and “Rakht Charitra”, says he is choosy about the work he does as he likes to distribute his time between family and his philanthropical activities.

Last seen on screen in heist comedy “Bank Chor”, he is gearing up for the release of his Tamil debut film “Vivegam”.”I’m still choosy about my work. I like to do one film a year and sometimes even two, but not more. I’m enjoying watching my children grow. I like to spend more time with them. I also have my businesses and charitable organizations that keep me busy,” Vivek said.


He picks his films after considerable thought. Asked what drew him towards “Vivegam”, he said it is director Siva’s passion.”It’s not the first south film I have been offered. I have turned down projects from all the south industries in the past. But when Siva approached me with ‘Vivegam’, it took just fifteen minutes to get convinced. I was moved by the passion with which he narrated and I wanted to work with him,” recalls Vivek, adding that he was initially hesitant about foraying into Tamil industry.
