Ace Action choreographer Ravi Verma is currently busy shooting Rustum which marks his debut as a director. The film has super star Shivarajkumar in the lead role. On Friday, Ravi Verma tweeted and announced Bollywood star Vivek Oberoi has been roped in for the project.
However the details of Vivek Oberoi’s character were kept unknown. Considering his previous outings in films down south, namma Gandhinagar also made presumption that he may play the antagonist. Last year, he made his debut in Tamil with a negative role in Vivegam which had Ajith Kumar in the lead.
But from our sources, we have found out that Vivek Oberoi is not playing the Antagonist or Villain in the film but he is enacting a very powerful role.
“How can Vivek play a Villain or an Antagonist when he was supposed to be a Hero by Ram Gopal Verma in Muthappa Rai’s biopic? Though the film is stalled but Vivek knows very well to fire his shots. You will see a different Vivek Oberoi in Rustum”. said a source.
Mean while, namma Shivanna apart from Rustum is also awaiting The Villain’s release and he is also presently shooting for Kavacha which is Malayalam’s blockbuster Oppam’s remake.
