Vivek Oberoi: Nervous to play a 25-year-old in `KLPD`
New Delhi: Vivek Oberoi says he was apprehensive to take on the role of a 25-year-old Delhi guy in his upcoming film ‘Kismat Love Paisa Dilli’.
The 36-year-old, who is returning to the big screen after a gap of two years, will be seen opposite Mallika Sherawat in the romantic comedy.
"I was nervous enacting this part. I have done many films over the years but still I was very conscious that I had to play the character of a 25-year-old. The character has his own traits which are very distinctive to him," Vivek told PTI.
"He has this boyish charm even as he does these quirky, mad things and finds himself in the craziest of situations. To get the part right, I also had to modulate my voice so that it doesn`t come across as too strong," he added.
This is the first time Vivek and Mallika have been paired together on the big screen. The movie also marks the comeback for both, as Vivek was last seen in 2010 film ‘Rakta Charitra’ and the actress in ‘Double Dhamaal’, which released last year.
The movie is directed by Sanjay Khanduri of ‘Ek Chalis Ki Last Local’ fame and will hit the theatres on October 5.
Talking about the movie`s story line being similar to that of Abhay Deol-starrer ‘Ek Chalis Ki Last Local’, Vivek said, "It is an extension to `Ek Chalis Ki Last Local` in a way. It was an adventure film and that`s about it. It didn`t really have any deeper thing to say and was basically on the periphery."
The actor says what he likes about the movie is its different title.
"What I love about the film is that it transitions through the whole title. The meaning of all four is well integrated into the narrative due to which you get the symbolism of `kismat`, `love`, `paisa` and `dilli` in a person`s life," he said.
