Vivek Oberoi, who shot his introductory scene for the film recently in Vijayawada with 2,000 junior artistes.
He is all set to step into the shoes of a villain again with Boyapati Srinivas’ upcoming Telugu action drama.
The Telugu action drama will reportedly also star Ram Charan, in the lead role.
Vivek was previously seen in a villainous role in Siva’s 2017 Tamil action thriller ‘Vivegam’ where he locked horns with Ajith Kumar.
Last year, he also ventured into the digital space as an antagonist in Karan Anshuman’s sports thriller Inside Edge, Amazon Prime Video India’s first original.
He is crucial to the plot and the director believes Vivek who has impressed with his performances in films like ‘Company’, ‘Shootout at Lokhandwala’ and ‘Rakht Charitra’ in the past will do complete justice to the role which is why he has been signed for a sizeable sum.
Vivek was last seen in the Y Films heist comedy ‘Bank Chor’ last year, in which he starred alongside his Masti co-star Riteish Deshmukh.
