According to Vivek Oberoi, Bollywood has always had a lobby, which has influence and power in a huge way. They have used it to enrich and benefit themselves. In an interview, the 44-year-old actor said he himself has been a victim of this lobby culture.
“When people said – sorry I can’t work with you”
Vivek says, “I saw the time when people said to me, ‘Sorry man, I can’t work with you, because XYZ forbids us to do this, how can you abuse them.’
‘Letting lobby stand out’
According to Vivek, he had long ago tried to stand up against this lobby approach. However, he did not get any support then. “I stood up against the system and said it was not unfair and cool. But it was premature and I didn’t find anyone. I had to pay for it,” he said.
Vivek added, “Then I decided that the right way to live is to separate myself from all this. I decided that I would not be a part of this circus. I just kept making good movies. Either become a crook or a guardian. Your nature changes. I have taken another path.
