Vivek Oberoi to play villain in 'Singh is Bling'
Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi, whose portrayal of a handicapped evil genius in 2013 sci-fi flick Krrish 3 garnered lot of praise, is all set to play antagonist once again in one of his upcoming projects Singh is Bling.

If sources are to be believed then Oberoi will share screen space with Akshay Kumar in the film, which will be directed by Prabhu Deva. The action comedy drama will see Kriti Sanon of Heropanti (2014) fame as the female lead. If things go ahead, then this will be the first film in which Akshay and Oberoi will star together.

A source close to the development revealed, "Prabhu Dheva was looking for some actor with a strong screen presence to play a negative role with good comic timing. After considering a couple of other names, the director zeroed down to with Vivek Oberoi. The director is still in advanced talks with Vivek Oberoi and the actor has shown keen interest in the role."

Before Krrish 3, Oberoi was seen playing a baddie in some of his other movies - an underworld gang leader in Ram Gopal Varma's Company (2002), a gang member in Vishal Bhardwaj's [Omkara (2006), an underworld gangster in Apoorva Lakhia's Shootout at Lokhandwala (2006), and an ambitious college student-turned-murderer in Ram Gopal Varma's [Rakta Charitra franchise.

Apart from Singh is Bling, Oberoi will also appear in YRF's upcoming flick Bank Chor, which will see him alongside his Masti (2004) co-star Riteish Deshmukh.
