Vivek Oberoi might have been keeping a low profile of late, but he is soon going to surface in the much-awaited Krrish 3. Yes, the actor has landed the coveted negative role in Rakesh Roshan’s next.

Our source confirmed, “Rakesh Roshan has not directed a single film in the last five years. Initially, he was keen to have an outside director and had even approached Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra to direct the film. However, the filmmaker later decided to take charge himself. And he wanted a strong character to play the negative lead. There were various names being considered including the likes of Shah Rukh Khan. But Vivek Oberoi has bagged the role. The role has been kept under wraps as the dialogues of the film are still being penned, though the screenplay is ready.”

The source further added, “There have been various rumours floating in the industry about the casting of the film. The fact is that none of them have been signed yet. Talks are still on with a lot of actors as the film is scheduled to go on the floors in October this year.”

According to the source the initial talks have already taken place with Vivek, but he is yet to sign on the dotted lines. In spite of repeated attempts, both Vivek Oberoi and Rakesh Roshan remained unavailable for comments.

If all goes well, Vivek might see his career graph surge forward for the better.
