After Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi Takes A Dig At Bollywood; “Industry Is A Very Insecure Place”

After Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi has opened up about his own experience in Bollywood and the actress for sharing her story.

Priyanka Chopra has been in the headlines for the last few days after she spoke about the politics of Bollywood. And for this courage, she was praised by many, including Kangana Ranaut, Shehkhar Suman, Neetu Chandra, Amaal Malik, and others. Now actor Vivek Oberoi has also come out in support and is applauding the actress. For the unversed, he reportedly was dating Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, but when Salman Khan knew about them, he threatened him. Oberoi revealed this in one of the interviews. Now, he has applauded actress Priyanka Chopra for sharing her personal experiences in a recent interview.

In a conversation with Hindustan Times, Vivek discusses the shadowy side of Bollywood that has always existed and even reflects on his own career path in the entertainment business. He describes how even he had to endure numerous pointless lobbying efforts and oppressive tales, something that Priyanka recently discussed in an interview. He continued by saying that this has been one of the darkest parts of the industry and that he has also experienced it firsthand.

He praised Priyanka for finding a new space and called the actress’ words motivating. According to him, “something beautiful happened for her personally and professionally” after she ventured out and tried something new. Vivek continues by saying that he is aware of “how frustrating it is, how it may leave one feeling completely worn out and fatigued.” He continued by recalling the instance when, following an outstanding performance in Shootout at Lokhandwala, he went 14 months without receiving any employment (2007).

The Saathiya actor described Bollywood as an insecure environment. “Whether it was the Me Too movement, the casting couch, or simply bullying and lobbying,” he continues, “all of these things take the joy out of creativity.” I’m glad these issues are being discussed because they will eventually fade away.”

He went on to say that as people become more vocal about their experiences and unfair treatment, “fewer people can play God, and fans are now aware.” Vivek then paid tribute to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide in 2020, and expressed regret that he had lost his life.
