Actor Vivek Oberoi has the uncanny knack of landing himself in controversies. It is this trait of his which has played havoc with his career, despite making a sensational debut in Ram Gopal Verma’s Company. The actor has recently been confirmed to play the lead in the next film by Kumar Taurani of TIPs. But the film’s producer seems to have come across a major stumbling block, which is all due to Oberoi and his errant ways.
It seems that this yet-untitled film by Taurani was to have three heroines and the producer had approached the top heroines to rope them in for the project. But after learning about Oberoi’s presence in the movie, all of them seem to have backed off, Intially Harman Baweja was to play the hero and Bipasha had been approached for the heroine’s role. But once Oberoi stepped in , the producers spoke to Katrina for the role. She turned it down because of the long-stand feud between him and Salman Khan. The production house has approached other leading actresses, all of who have turned down the offer due to the presence of Oberoi. Finally, the producers have been forced to rope in three newcomers, who are believed to be NRIs. Oberoi’s famous pangas have been with Salman Khan, then the Bachchans, and more recently, it was with Apoorva Lakhia, the director of Mission Istanbul.
