Vivek Oberoi Refuses To Talk About His Ex-Girlfriend Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi recently opened up about his career and his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai.

In a recent interview, Vivek Oberoi was asked about his past with actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Vivek was further asked if he hadn’t gone public about his relationship during the initial years of his career would things be different? To this, Vivek told Bollywood Bubble, “Not that I am going to answer this question because it’s done and dusted.”

Talking about how his career was affected by big names in the industry Vivek told Indian Express, “They’re extremely fond of me, proud of me, because they’ve seen me go through such a phase where there was a whole lobby, a whole powerful set of people who were trying to push me down. That was the time I went out and gave a Shootout at Lokhandwala, where I got a lot of praise and won awards. People were saying ‘oh my God, this is amazing!’ and then for one and a half years, I was sitting at home, nobody was coming to me with films, it defies all logic. As an actor I was delivering, box office was delivering, there were awards, critics were praising me but there was no work, kaam hi nahi tha.”

Vivek further mentioned Sushant Singh Rajput and stated that lobbying destroys hardworking and talented kids like him. He said, “It is breaking. Look at what Sushant Singh Rajput went through, or so many other kids go through, so much talent gets crushed because it was somebody’s decision, for reasons other than work, to just destroy someone. There is so much power in some people’s hands, there is a God complex, which needs to go. We can’t have too much power in their hand where they can think that they can make or break someone, and ensure that people don’t work in this industry again. People have said this to me and they actually believe it. It’s our fault as an industry that we’ve given that kind of power to them. That pedestal should be given only to talent — new, old, upcoming, established, that is the most important.”
