From Heath Ledger To Chowkidaar-In-Chief: Vivek Oberoi Loves To Be The Bad Guy
Vivek Oberoi is trying to claw his way back into stardom with 'PM Narendra Modi'. Let's take a look at his career at large.
Vivek Oberoi has a lot to look up to when it comes to our Pradhan Sevak - Narendra Damodardas Modi. Modi has refused to host any press conference and that has played a huge role in keeping his political career intact. Maybe, Vivek should have done the same.
Keeping your mouth shut is a great defence when your intellect isn’t sharp enough to form cohesive sentences that make sense. Modi has shielded himself from any criticism by refusing to comment on anything and everything of national importance.
Back in 2013, Vivek had compared his role in Krrish 3 to Heath Ledger’s Joker. Jokes aside, this comparison has made Vivek and his three grey matter cells the butt of all jokes on social media.
Had Modi been introduced to his life earlier, he would have kept his mouth shut and the world would never know about Vivek’s masterclass in acting.
BJP is turning into the 'Avengers' Initiative for every B-tier celebrity
The irony shouldn’t be lost on anyone that the Bhartiya Janta Party has time and again become the plan B for actors who’ve basically run out of projects and are at the twilight of their career.
But calling this the end of Vivek Oberoi’s career would be graceful as his ‘best’ bit of acting involves mumbling a few words in a dark room where Ram Gopal Verma sticks the camera under the glass table.
The curious case of the missing 'Godhra' reference from the trailer
When the trailer of PM Narendra Modi was released, Vivek Oberoi finally became relevant. It was only the second press event where journalists seemed to be interested in what the ‘Saathiya’ actor had to say.
Playing the role of our Chowkidaar-in-chief, Vivek makes a passing reference to the Gujarat riots. According to Scroll.in, a dialogue referencing the Godhra carnage has reportedly been removed from the final version of the trailer.
Maybe Vivek loved his morning walks a little too much, but picking up this project goes to show his determination to claw his way back into celebrity status.
The Election Commission of India has banned Vivek Oberoi’s last hope and has put a stay on the release of the movie till the elections are over. Will the BJP still make a PR push once the elections are done? Maybe. But one thing’s certain - people who review art have to watch a lot of propaganda features.
To say that Vivek Oberoi has always been an awful actor would be wrong. He knows how to play characters of a certain mould. It's his choice of films that's questionable.
