Vivek Oberoi in Vivegam

There can be no denying that Ram Charan is one of the most popular and charismatic stars in Telugu cinema today. During his reasonably eventful career, the ‘Mega Powerstar’ has won the love of movie buffs thanks to his gripping performances, charming personality and effective screen presence. Moreover, he has impressed fans because of his humble nature and bindass attitude. At present, he is shooting for ‘Rangasthalam’ which is one of the biggest films of his career. A Sukumar directorial, it features him in a rustic avatar and will see him share screen space with Samantha Akkineni for the first time in his career. The film’s first look was released sometime ago and it created a buzz amongst fans. Interestingly, ‘Rangasthalam’ has received the received the thumbs up from Chiranjeevi and could turn out to be hit upon release. SAometime ago, a source had recealed that the megastar found it to be a classic in the making.

“Recently, Chiranjeevi along with Rajamouli and others saw the rushes of the film and were surprised to see that the film has come out beautifully, almost like a classic. He is satisfied with the way the film has shaped up,” the source had told a leading daily.

After wrapping up ‘Rangasthalam’, Charan is likely to begin work on a film with Boyapati Srinu. Now, it seems the curiosity surrounding the film is set to receive a shot in the arm. According to a leading daily, the makers have approached Bollywood star Vivek Oberoi to essay as key role in the film. Talking about this, a source said that talk are on, however, it is known whether the ‘Omkara’ actor will actually sign the dotted lined.

“The makers have approached Vivek, but it’s still unknown whether he’s signed on the dotted line,” said the source.

Interestingly, Vivek is no stranger to Telugu cinema. A few years ago, he received rave reviews for his portrayal of factionist-turned politician in ‘Rakht Charitra’. A Ram Gopal Varma directorial, it impressed fans courtesy its hard-hitting presentation and gripping plot. It will be worth watching if he is able to impress movie buffs yet again.

On a related note, earlier this year, Vivek was seen in the much-hyped ‘Vivegam’ and delivered a sincere performance. In it, he played the antagonist and shared screen space with the phenomenal Ajith Kumar. A Siva directorial, it opened to a good response at the box office despite receiving a mixed response from critics. Besides Ajith-Vivek, it also had Akshara Haasan and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead. Talking about ‘Thala’, Vivek had said his dedication to work is truly inspiring.

“When we started shooting, he had told me that he was fat in Vedhalam but wanted to be fit for Vivegam. Throughout shoot, he was so committed to his diet and workout. In Serbia, I used to hit the gym at 5 in the morning to train and Ajith anna was there before me every morning. While I was feeling cold even after layers of clothing, Ajith anna shot a bare body shot in freezing temperatures. We shared good chemistry but I started looking up to him as my elder brother only due to his values. That is what makes him special,” he had told a leading daily.

Well, we hope that things work out that Vivek agrees to do the RC-Boyapati Srinu film. We are sure he will make a mark.

So, are you looking forward to seeing Vivek and RC lock horns on the big screen? Comments, please!
