Actor Vivek Oberoi must have felt the weight of the world upon himself while shooting for Krrish 3 in an outfit that weighed no less than 28 kgs.
The upcoming superhero flick Krrish 3 has Vivek Oberoi playing the villain. The actor, who has proved his mettle with films like Saathiya, Road and Shootout At Lokhandwala, gets into the skin of the villain Kaal for the movie.
Vivek Oberoi sports various looks in the movie, and one required him to wear a metal outfit that covers him from top to toe. A glimpse of that look was also shown in the trailer.
The actor’s costume for Krrish 3 is said to be the most expensive dress he’s ever worn, and also the most expensive in this film. The metal outfit for Vivek is quite heavy and weighed almost 28 kilos. Expectedly, Vivek had a tough time shooting in the scorching heat with this outfit on. But being a thorough professional, he took up this challenge and wowed one and all with his performance.
Interestingly, Hrithik Roshan initially wanted to play the villain in ‘Krrish 3’, but he couldn’t for obvious reasons. Hrithik said: “Our list was very small as it had only one name - Vivek. I wanted to play the negative character, but I was not allowed to. I could not have done what Vivek has done. He has done an amazing job.”
Director Rakesh Roshan once mentioned that the script of Krrish 3 was written with Vivek Oberoi in mind for the villain. According to him, Vivek had the right body and skills to make for a tough adversary for the superhero Krrish in the third part of the hit series.
The year 2013 seems an exciting year for Vivek Oberoi. His Grand Masti is up for release and Krrish 3 has him in a powerful role.
