Vivek Oberoi celebrated his birthday in Delhi on 3rd September. On the occasion, he confirmed that he will be playing the deadly contract killer Virendra Pratap, directed by a yet to be revealed new director.
To Mumbai Mirror, Oberoi refused to reveal the name of the debutante director, but did confirm his presence in the film, saying, “It is a big budget gangster drama set in the 80’s and 90’s in North India.” Oberoi is flattered by the recognition he still receives from his debut film, ‘Company’,��and a sequel to the film has also been announced, but Oberoi��couldn’t comment as the film is��still in��its early stages.��He said, “I’m flattered that people still remember me as Chandu Bhai from Company and want to see me as a rough, rugged anti0hero. That’s what I will give them.”
Oberoi will be busy with the filming of ‘Great Grand Masti’ throughout October, and will be spending some quality time with his wife and kids beforehand.
