For Vivek Oberoi home is where the heart is; the actor has taken time off from his busy schedule to spend time with wife Priyanka in Bangalore.

“I came here to surprise my wife. It’s going to be a packed year ahead and I wanted to spend some quality time with my family.

The first thing I did on my arrival was to visit a temple with my wife. We wanted to thank Almighty for helping us find each other. There has been so much stability over the past year in my life. On work front too there is so much happening. In fact I would call this my best phase career wise,” says Vivek.

With films like Krissh 2 in the pipeline, the actor is gearing up for a second innings in the big league. “I feel great to be a part of one of the most expensive Indian films. Also people who have worked on the sci-fi Avatar have been roped in for it. As for my character I’ll say till today India has seen super heroes, now they’ll get to see a super villain!”

Director Sanjay Khanduri’s Kismat Love Paisa Dilli is also proving to be a pleasure ride for Vivek. “It is a story that spans across a night in Delhi. It shows how the good and evil come to play at night even as the hero goes looking for love and money.”

His role as Satbir Gujjar in Zilla Ghaziabad also has him excited. “Satbir was a do gooder; a school teacher who had to give up his pen for a sword. He did that to eliminate certain gangs in Gazhiabad. Arsahd Warsi and Sanjay Dutt are also part of cast. An opportunity to act with Sanjay again comes as a perk.”

Incidentally, the actor is all set to rekindle another old association. “The sequel to Masti that I had so much fun shooting six years ago is also something I am kicked about.” But that’s not all, Vivek has also signed a musical love story with Tips and on top of that, Shootout At Wadala has also been offered to him.

Vivek’s production venture Watch Indian Circus winning critical acclaim at film festivals has only coupled his joy. “The film is being well received and this has encouraged me to remain committed to making responsible cinema. We are planning to release the film during summer so that children can see it,” he says.

The film is about the determination of a poor mother to take her children to a circus. It also highlights the circus called ‘Indian politics’.
