Vivek Oberoi recalls getting rejected and insulted by an ace filmmaker 

It is a well known fact that under its glitz and glamour, Bollywood is a highly competitive place and it is extremely tough to make it big here. It is not surprising that even the biggest and most popular of celebrities have faced multiple rejections in their career. Recently, in a conversation with The Indian Express, actor Vivek Oberoi recalled the time he was rejected and personally insulted by an ace filmmaker.

The actor stated, "He kept looking at me and he said, ‘You can never make it.’ He then opened a drawer, pulled out a picture of a model, who was making his debut that year, placed his picture on the table and said, ‘Look at him. This is a star.’ Ironically, nothing happened to his career. But I remember that audition so clearly because it was so harsh. It was very personal. But yes, that made me stronger."

Further talking about how he wanted to become successful without his father Suresh Oberoi's influence, Vivek stated, "My father didn’t come with a sifaarish ki chitthi. He came to this incredibly difficult industry with his own merit. So, when my father offered me to star in this film, I kept feeling wrong about it. So, I took this critical decision and told him that I cannot do this. He looked at me with the concerned eyes of a father but there was a sense of pride too."
