    Vivek was quoted as saying, "I went up to my father, I think I was 22 or 23 when I said I don't want to do this. I don't want you to produce films for me and he was like 'Are you mad?' And I was like no, I don't want you to do it. You made it on your own and he said 'but I had to struggle'. Struggle very difficult. And I said, 'No, even I will struggle'. And he said, 'Arey, how can you struggle? You are Suresh Oberoi's son'. And then, I said I will drop your last name. I will just be Vivek Anand and I will struggle. I will go door-to-door, I will go office-to-office. I will stand in queues. I will go and take my portfolios, awards and certificates that I had won in inter-college and national youth festivals. I had done so much theatre."
