Actor Vivek Oberoi says Hrithik Roshan, who features in a triple role in "Krrish 3", has delivered his career's best performance in the sci-fi movie. Krrish 3 is one of Hrithik Roshan's career's best performance," Vivek said here in an interview. "To play three characters - Krishna, Krrish and Rohit and to play them so differently in one film...especially there are scenes where they (Hrithik's characters in the film) are talking to each other and the performances are so beautifully done that they look like different people...It is an outstanding performance," added Vivek. 


Directed by Rakesh Roshan, Krrish 3 is the third film in the franchise that began with "Koi Mil Gaya" in 2003. It also features Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut. Vivek even recalls an incident when during the dubbing of the film, he became teary eyed after watching Hrithik's performance in one of the scenes from the movie. "When I was dubbing for the film, there was a very emotional scene of Rohit, being played by Hrithik in the film and his performance and emotion in that scene was so deep, so beautiful that it touched my heart deeply. I was choked in that moment," recalled the 37-year-old. "I couldn't speak, there were tears in my eyes. I remember stopping the dubbing (in between), came out and called up Hrithik and said,' I love you man, what a performance'," he added. 


"So to all the fans of Hrithik out there, I would like to say watch out for Krrish 3. It is probably the best performance of his career as yet," Vivek said.






"It is challenging to play a bad guy" - Vivek Oberoi

The prodigal has been tamed and how. Even during the lowest of lows in his oscillatory career and private life, Vivek Oberoi had rarely let go of his cheeky streak to court controversies. But to his credit, the man squarely bore the brunt of all his fall outs. His return to top flight can best be described as inconsistent. However, the second half of 2013 looks good for the actor – what with him being appreciated in Grand Masti and the Krrish 3 trailer getting such a great response. It’s clearly a welcome breather for this talented guy. He’s forcing the industry to reconsider his status as a film lead. Vivek Oberoi is regaining lost ground.

Professionally rehabilitated, personally too Vivek couldn’t be in a happier place. The once reckless lover recently became a father to baby boy, Vivaan. As an individual, fatherhood has made him calmer. He reflects, “I really enjoy bonding with my baby. Plus, I get free brownie points from my wife. She says, ‘Awww… so cute. I’m so tired and you’re taking care of the baby.’ I think I only draw the line on poop diapers. Otherwise, I am a hands-on father. And Priyanka’s a great mom. I am truly lucky.”

That Vivek is wholly and solely in love with his wife is evident when he says, “There was a gap of six to seven years between my last relationship and Priyanka. But the minute I met her, the void disappeared. She was an incredible anchor and she got me stable. She comforted me and made me feel that I belonged. Trust me, it’s the best feeling in the Universe because you can finally breathe. You feel like the search is over and you’re finally home,” he pauses. “In Spain, they have an incredible attitude. Whether there’s an accident or a fight, they simply say, “Tranquillo!” It means harmony and peace. After being with Priyanka, I feel Tranquillo!”
 Prod him about whether he is a hen-pecked husband or not and pat comes his reply, “You know, Saifu (Saif Ali Khan) once shared this story with me of his father, the late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi saab. After which, I decided that whenever I get into a relationship or get married, I’m going to live by this philosophy. He told Saif, ‘Son, learn to pick your battles. You’ll never win all of them.’ And that is so true. I live by that. I pick my battles.”

When I ask him if he’s happy that he didn’t marry an actress, a considerable pause ensues. “I don’t know. I only know that I’m happy to have married Priyanka. I’m happy that I share my life with someone as incredible as her. She completes me in every way.” Vivek is equally enthusiastic about Krrish 3 and rightfully so. The first look of the film has received a roaring response. With great pride he claims that Kaal (his character in Krrish 3) is one of the most phenomenal characters he’s ever come across. Says Vivek, “He has a layered personality. It was challenging and exciting to play the bad guy. I was ecstatic when I read it because I was bored of playing the same old roles. I wanted something that gave me a kick and Kaal did. I love superheroes, this character is trippy and fun and gives the term ‘bad guy’ a new definition. His stature is that of a hero. He has reason to be a villain and isn’t just being bad for the sake of being bad.”
