I play 'super villain' in Krrish 3: Vivek Oberoi

Vivek Oberoi

His career may have been lying low lately but actor Vivek Oberoi says he has a lot to look forward as he gears up for three big releases this year.

The 36-year-old's past few releases like Prince, Rakht Charitra and Kismat Love Paisa Dilli did not do well at the box office but Vivek thinks it is not a time to dwell on the past.

"I don't look back, what has happened is done. It is not my time to look back just yet, probably when I am too old in the industry I will do that. But right now I just want to look forward and concentrate on good work. 2013 has lot of good work in store for me. I don't have time to look back," said Vivek.

The actor, who was recently seen in Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story, has gangster drama Zilla Ghaziabad, Krrish 3 and comedy Grand Masti releasing this year.

He plays "super villain" in Rakesh Roshan's Krrish franchise and a school teacher-turned-rebel in Zila Ghaziabad.

"I play this super villain in Krrish 3 and it is a very dark and intense character. I have never done anything like this before. In fact, on the first day of the sets, Hrithik told me that he wanted to do this role initially so it was a huge compliment. I think I am very lucky to get that part.

"In Zilla Gaziabad I play a school teacher, who focuses on improving the lives of children around him. But he is dragged into gangster trouble and that is when he drops his pen and picks up the gun. It is more of a rebellious role." Besides movies, Vivek is busy with his new born son these days and he says it is difficult to leave his family and concentrate on work.
