Mumbai: After a dull 2011, the New Year looks promising for actor Vivek Oberoi who has ‘Krrish 2’ and ‘Zilla Ghaziabad’ in his kitty.

And more so, with 2012 starting off for the actor on a cashing note!

Reportedly, Vivek Oberoi walked away with a cool Rs 80 lakh cheque from the organisers of a New Year`s Eve bash without even having to groove to a single beat of the music. The actor was supposed to perform at a new year’s bash which never happened.

Over 2,000 people had gathered at the Country Club in Andheri to see Vivek in action. But with cops stalling the party, the audience returned home disappointed.

Talking to a daily, an eyewitness said, "Vivek had rehearsed for his show all day on December 30 and he was at the venue with his dance troupe by 3.30 pm on the 31st. The show was supposed to start around 9 pm, but the cops barged in claiming that the club hadn`t acquired necessary permissions."

Vivek, nevertheless, got his fee that was promised to him.
