We are just a few days away from the release of Great Grand Masti and Vivek Oberoi is excited to be back on the silver screen after a hiatus. But spotting him in the limelight makes everyone think about his controversial press conference.
At a recent press con Vivek was asked about Salman Khan, to which he swiftly replied, “I don’t dwell in the past, and I believe negativity helps no one. I’m someone who has always had a positive outlook towards life. I move on, rather than mull over the past. What I’ve learnt in my 14-year journey in Bollywood is that no matter how successful you are, nothing is better than humility. The way Amitabh Bachchan saab and Jeetendraji meet you with warmth and humility is exceptional. I want to imbibe that from actors like them. When I praise someone’s work, I do not have any vested interest. Likewise, when I celebrate someone’s success I feel genuinely happy because it means that the film fraternity is doing well. I was very happy when Tiger Shroff’s ‘Baaghi’ became a hit. I have known him long before he became an actor, so I am proud of him. I love the energy of the new breed and I am happy that they are doing so well.”
He was also asked if he was upset because his attempts at a truce weren’t even acknowledged. Vivek replied, “No! Unfortunately, some people are stuck in a time warp about an incident that happened 13 years ago. I’m celebrating my life every day. I have a beautiful family and I wake up to bliss every day. I’m blessed with more than I could dream of. The respect I get is something I had never imagined I would get 10 years ago. I feel so much gratitude.”
