Vivek Oberoi is slated to make an appearance on the show MTV Stunt Mania — where contestants prove themselves through a series of stunts on motorbikes. Says a source close to Vivek, "Vivek was holidaying in the Greek Islands when he got a call from the producers of his forthcoming film Prince to inform him about the tie up with the channel and they urged him to return to shoot for the show. The actor boarded the next flight out, and reached Mumbai at 3.30 the following morning. He headed straight for the shoot, which was to begin at 9 am on the outskirts of Mumbai.

Stunt Mania is a fun, racy show where contestants prove themselves through a series of motorbike stunts. VO loves bikes; this made him a perfect fit for the show. The actor has a surprise appearance and a special role to perform on the show. As Prince is a high-adrenaline action thriller, producer Kumar Taurani thought that the connect would be great."

It is believed that Vivek's entry on the show is with a stunning act performed on a bike, and he will wear a specially designed helmet, used by stuntmen. Vivek says, "I don't have a bike anymore though I used to have one. I love the heavy bikes like the Suzuki Boulevard which was the one I used to have. But my all time favorite is the Rune — it's the ultimate machine — like a piece of art. Now I am waiting to buy a new one next but I can't make up my mind as to what to buy."

Vivek is extremely excited about Prince and the show. He says, "Prince is a joyride filled with adrenaline-pumping stunts and a fantastic edge-of-the-seat thriller. It's a perfect combination of thrill through story and high-end action stunts." Apart from Prince, Vivek's next releases are Karan Johar's Qurbaan and Ram Gopal Varma's Rakta Charitra.
