Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi married Priyanka Alva, daughter of Karnataka minister Jeevaraj Alva, in October 2010. Before marrying Priyanka, Vivek went through a phase in his life when he was not interested in having serious relationships since he felt ‘let down’ in love.
But the Saathiya actor admitted the more flings he had, the lonelier he felt in life. “I explored that path and the more the girls I dated the more lonely I felt,” Vivek said.
Recently, Vivek completed 20 years in the film industry and on the special occasion he interacted with indianexpress.com. During the interaction, the actor opened up about facing rejection during his early years in the industry.
He recalled how an ace filmmaker told him that he will never be able to make it big. “He kept looking at me and he said, ‘You can never make it.’ He then opened a drawer, pulled out a picture of a model, who was making his debut that year, placed his picture on the table and said, ‘Look at him. This is a star.’ Ironically, nothing happened to his career. But I remember that audition so clearly because it was so harsh. It was very personal. But yes, that made me stronger,” Vivek shared.
Vivek Oberoi was last in the 2019 film PM Narendra Modi, in which he essayed the titular role.
