Vivek Oberoi Lauds Priyanka Chopra For Talking About Bollywood’s DARK Side; Says, ‘I Know How Frustrating It Is, She Got Out Of The Rut’
Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi was once considered the chocolate boy of Bollywood. His chemistry with his female leads was often lauded by the audiences. However, it all went downhill when in a press conference he spoke about how he was being threatened by Salman Khan, as he was reportedly dating Aishwarya Rai Bahchcha. For the unversed, it was alleged that Salman and Ash were dating during the early 2000s. Now, in a recent interview he has praised actress Priyanka Chopra for opening up about her own experiences.

In his interview with Hindustan Times, Vivek goes on to mention the dark side of Bollywood that has always been there and even recalled his own journey in the entertainment industry. He shares how even he had to go through a lot of unnecessary lobbies and repressive stories, something that Priyanka in her recent interview spoke about. He went on say that this has been one of the industries darkest sides and he has also been on the receiving end of it.

The actor, who has been making a name for himself through his amazing performances on OTT platforms, called Bollywood an insecure place. He adds, “Whether it was the MeToo movement, the casting couch, or just bullying, lobbying - all of these things take the joy out of creativity. I’m glad these things are being spoken about and slowly will go away.”

He went on to speak about how now that people are getting more vocal about their experiences and unfair treatment “less people can play God and the fans are now aware.” Vivek went on to remember late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide in 2020, and expressed that he not have lost his life.
