Everyone knows that Vivek Oberoi doesn't like to smoke, either in
personal life nor onscreen. But, finally director Apoorva Lakhiya
has convinced Vivek to smoke on screen for their upcoming release
"Shootout At Lokhandwala".
Vivek, who plays the gangster Maya Dolas in the film, was
initially quite apprehensive about doing smoking scenes because he
hates smoking. However, he obliged Apoorva keeping in view the
requirement of the script and the character, which is based on the
life of a real gangster.
Being an anti-smoking ambassador, Vivek was initially
hesitating to do smoking scenes on screen but he has taken this
chance for the role. He is actively involved with a number of NGOs
and has been working for them. Everybody on the sets was aware of
his anti-smoking nature and nobody has ever found him taking one
cigarettes during the break.
Though Vivek has done smoking scenes in this film, he does not
endorse smoking, as he hates smoking. Good boy, Vivek!
