Vivek Oberoi on how cruel and brutal film industry can be 

It is quite obvious how competitive the glamorous and glitzy world of Bollywood can be but not many people realise that it can be cruel and destructive as well. Actor Vivek Oberoi, who has seen some really tough times in his career, opened up about the same in a recent interview. Despite making an amazing entry in Bollywood with films like 'Company', 'Dum' etc, Vivek failed to sustain his career for long although now he has bounced back by starring in web shows like 'Inside Edge' and 'Dharavi Bank'.

Vivek told Bollywood Bubble, "This place can be cruel, brutal, trying to crush you.” Sharing how his family helped him, the actor continued, “The little prayers they make for me every now and then, that’s what kept it together for me. I just lost it otherwise. I am just constantly so upset with the negativity around me and maybe that was the agenda. The agenda is sometimes to break you mentally. But I think Priyanka had a big role in creating a haven for me now."

Giving example of late Sushant Singh Rajput, Vivek said, "Which is why I related to unfortunately what happened with Sushant or what happens with other people. I felt that darkness and pain. This place can be pretty cruel. They can be brutal with trying to crush you and when lies are spoken so many times, so loudly and so many, they become the truth. They force you to start believing that’s the truth about you but in hindsight with a lot of calmness, strength, and inner happiness, you realise that your truth is your truth and no one can take that away from you but you."

On the work front, Vivek is currently working on Rohit Shetty's web show 'Indian Police Force'.
