Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi has been signed up to play the baddie in Ram Charan Teja’s upcoming film, which will be directed by Boyapati Srinu.
According to sources in tinsel town, the director was looking to rope in an actor to play this ruthless character and finally zeroed in on Vivek Oberoi. The last time the actor was seen playing the villain was in the 2015 Ajith starrer Vivegam, which was directed by Siva.
The shooting for this film, which has not been titled yet, began in Vijayawada recently. The director is reported to have shot the intro scene with nearly 2,000 junior artistes. This proves that Ram Charan’s magnum opus will be made on a grand scale.
Ram Charan is currently busy giving the finishing touches to the Sukumar directorial Rangasthalam that is gearing up for release on March 30. In this movie, Ram Charan is paired with Samantha for the first time and his different get-up would be a treat to watch, say sources. He will be joining the sets of Boyapati Srinu’s film soon after he is done with the shooting for this film.
Vivek Oberoi made his acting debut with the 2002 release Company, which won him the Filmfare Best Debut Award and Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. He then went on to star in films such as Road, Saathiya, Yuva, Kaal, Rakta Charitra I & II and so on. The last Bollywood flick he starred in was Bank Chor, in which he played a CBI officer. It may be mentioned here that Vivek Oberoi made his debut in Tollywood in 2010 with Rakta Charitra I, directed by Ram Gopal Varma, in which he played the villain. Sources say his performance in that film was one of the reasons for Boyapati to rope him in for the Ram Charan starrer.
