Vivek Oberoi has had a good year in Bollywood so far. Shootout
at Lokhandwala was a huge hit just like Omkara. He seems
to have found his place back in Bollywood. This has either got too
much into his head or he is too humble to speak about it. At the
screening of Omkara at the Osian Film Festival, he gave the media a
pass by slipping into the auditorium from the back door and not the
entrance where the media were waiting for him- on top of coming in
an hour late.
In the hurry that the media was, one journo was pushed over and
wouldn't have any of it. A similar incident happened when actress
Manisha Koirala dodged the press on the first day of the festival.
In order to control the media frenzy, the PR team at the festival
had him met the press after the screening was over.
took their chance and were all over him. And while they questioned
(pestered) him, he kept saying that he was feeling claustrophobic.
Well only if you hadn't dodged us in the first place, the media
seemed to say.
