Vivek Oberoi recently opened about how he started several businesses when he was not getting roles in film despite being part of some successful films like Saathiya (2002), Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007) and Omkara (2006) among others. He claimed that he has been a victim of the lobby culture in the film industry.

In an interview with India News, he said, “I have been doing other businesses for a while now. There was a phase in my life where my movies were hit, performance was appreciated, yet for other reasons if you are not getting any role at all, when you become the victim of a system and lobby, you are left with just two options where you get all depressed or take it as a challenge and write your own destiny. I chose to walk on the latter path and ended up starting several businesses.”

In 2003, Vivek held a press conference where he had accused Salman Khan of threatening him. The two had a major conflict in public and Vivek maintains that he stopped getting much work after that because of Salman.

He was last seen in the Rohit Shetty’s web-series Indian Police Force which released on Prime Video earlier this year.
