Actors are judged instantly; should take criticism positively: Vivek Oberoi
Vivek Oberoi is no stranger to successes and failures and the actor said that in a world where a person is judged instantly, he tries to take criticism positively. Since his debut with Ram Gopal Varma's "Company", Vivek delivered hits like "Saathiya", "Masti", and "Shootout at Lokhandwala", and at the same time faced box-office disappointments in "Kyun! Ho Gaya Na" and "Great Grand Masti".
People love or hate you just by seeing 3-hour-movie: Oberoi
Oberoi believes that artists must try to protect themselves from both love and criticism. "The judgment of work for actors is brutal and also immediate. You may be working on a film for a year, but someone walks into a theatre for three hours and can say they hate you or love you. It is that personal," the 41-year-old actor said.
Vivek says scrutiny on star kids was always there
"Same thing applies for goodness. You have crazy fans, sometimes there is praise that's undue and that also you don't take to your head," Oberoi said. There is a lot of scrutiny on star kids, but Vivek, son of veteran actor Suresh Oberoi, said it "has always been there". "Now the discussion is on social media, so you know it's about you," he added.
