Reminiscent of yore during his Company days, Viviek is coming back again with his perfectionist zeal. In Vishaal's Bharadwaj's Omkara, adaptation of Othello which is set against the rustic backdrop of Bihar, Viviek essays the character of Casio named as 'Kesu Phirangi' here.
In the film there is a sequence where Kesu Phirangi strums the guitar. Viviek wanted to get so much into the character that he started learning to play the guitar. His musician friend used to travel all the way to Wai, near Mahableshwar for the guitar lessons.
Vishal Bharadwaj, the director of the film says, "Viviek is a very dedicated actor. He started learning to play the guitar only to get into character for the sequence in the film. He has done a fabulous job in Omkara"
And since the promos of Omkara are out, all eyes are set on him. There is a big buzz on him since he is coming back with Ajay Devgan in a realistic set up since Company. Says Viviek, "I would rather let my work speak for itself. Vishal Bharadwaj has an excellent vision and I am looking forward to Omkara".
