Vivek Oberoi recalls the dark phase of his career

In a recent interview, actor Vivek Oberoi has opened up about the struggles he had to endure in his Bollywood career. The actor revealed how he was left without work despite giving good performances in acclaimed movies. For the unversed, Vivek dated actress Aishwarya Rai early in his career and this created a rift between him and actor Salman Khan. It is alleged that Salman later threatened Vivek and tried to sabotage his career.

Recalling those times, Vivek told The Indian Express, "People were saying ‘oh my God, this is amazing!’ and then for one and a half years, I was sitting at home, nobody was coming to me with films, it defies all logic. As an actor I was delivering, box office was delivering, there were awards, critics were praising me but there was no work, kaam hi nahi tha.”

Talking about how his family supported him during these trying times, Vivek shared, “They’re extremely fond of me, proud of me, because they’ve seen me go through such a phase where there was a whole lobby, a whole powerful set of people who were trying to push me down. That was the time I went out and gave a Shootout at Lokhandwala, where I got a lot of praise and won awards.”

On the work front, Vivek was last seen in MX Player web series 'Dharavi Bank' and currently he is working on Rohit Shetty's 'Indian Police Force'.
