Vivek Oberoi BREAKS Silence on Being ‘Victim of Lobby’ in Bollywood: ‘My Movies Were Hit Yet…’ – News18


The 2003 feud between Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi remains one of Bollywood’s most talked-about controversies.

Vivek Oberoi’s career hit a slump after he had a public feud with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan and accused the latter of threatening him.

Vivek Oberoi, who was last seen in the Rohit Shetty directorial web series Indian Police Force, has got candid about his entrepreneurial journey despite delivering successful movies like Masti franchise, Saathiya, Shootout at Lokhandwala, and Omkara, among others. In a recent interview, Vivek claimed that he stopped get any movie offers due to lobbying in Bollywood.

He told India News, “I have been doing other businesses for a while now. There was a phase in my life where my movies were hit, performance was appreciated, yet for other reasons if you are not getting any role at all, when you become the victim of a system and lobby, you are left with just two options where you get all depressed or take it as a challenge and write your own destiny. I chose to walk on the latter path and ended up starting several businesses.”

Vivek Oberoi’s career hit a slump after he had a public feud with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. During a press conference in 2003, Vivek had even accused Salman of threatening him, owing to his then relationship with Aishwarya Rai. Following their alleged breakup, Aishwarya tied the knot with Abhishek Bachchan in April 2007. They welcomed their daughter, Aaradhya, in November 2011.

Two decades later, Vivek opened up about a lot of ‘unnecessary stuff’ which discouraged him and left him with no work.

“In hindsight, I went through a lot of stuff that was unnecessary,” he said, speaking with Hindustan Times. Talking about lobbying and ‘repressive stories’ in Bollywood, Vivek dubbed it as dark sides of the industry and said he was at the receiving end of it all.

Speaking about how Vivek handled himself during that time, Suresh Oberoi recently told Bollywood Hungama, “It is his strength that he got through this. If it was someone else, they would have become an alcoholic or perhaps a drug addict. People were really against him. Media, and the people in the film industry, even the actors… sometimes when people get successful very quickly, others can’t take it.”
