Vivek Oberoi On The Ugly Dark Side Of Bollywood: The Rejection Here Is So Personal

|

Today
(April
12,
2022),
Ram
Gopal
Varma’s

Company
,
which
marked
the
Bollywood
debut
of
actor
Vivek
Oberoi,
turned
20.
In
his
recent
tete-a-tete
with
a
leading
daily,
when
Oberoi
was
asked
how
he
looks
back
at
his
journey
in
Bollywood,
he
said
that
it
has
been
full
of
ups
and
downs.

While
speaking
to
Hindustan
Times,
Vivek
said,
“I
still
feel
like
that
same
child
who
first
stood
on
the
stage
at
the
age
of
five
at
a
function
in
school,
and
just
fell
in
love
with
that
experience
of
a
live
performance.”

“My
dad
was
putting
all
his
life’s
earnings
on
my
debut
film,
which
was
unacceptable
to
me.
But
I
wanted
a
job
on
my
own
merit
rather
than
my
last
name
because
my
father
also
didn’t
find
his
way
with
sifarish
and
struggled
for
18-29
months,” added
the
45-year-old
actor.

In
the
same
interview,
Vivek
also
opened
up
about
the
dark
side
of
Bollywood
and
said,
“The
rejection
here
is
so
personal.”

He
further
revealed
that
he
was
at
the
receiving
end
of
many
rude
and
means
comments,
but
it
made
him
a
stronger
person.

“When
people
think
you
are
struggler
with
no
connection,
they
just
tell
you
all
kinds
of
stuff,
which
is
very
personal.
They
said
I
can’t
be
an
actor…
but
everything
which
broke
me,
made
me
stronger,
which
set
the
tone
of
my
20
years
in
the
industry,”
shared
the

Saathiya

actor.

While
looking
back
at
his
journey,
he
said
that
he
has
nothing
but
gratitude
towards
his
fans.
He
further
recalled
that
there
was
a
time
when
he
gave
several
hits,
won
awards
and
then
sat
at
home
for
one
and
half
years,
because
nobody
wanted
to
work
with
him.

“I
was
told
I
will
never
get
work
in
the
industry
again,
no
matter
how
you
perform
to
be
at
the
position
where
I
am
today.
The
journey
is
filled
with
gratitude…
And
I
still
have
miles
to
go
before
I
sleep,”
concluded
Vivek.
