Vivek out of Shootout At Wadala
AFTER keeping Sanjay Gupta, the director of Shootout At Wadala, waiting for long, Vivek Oberoi is finally out of the film. The actor has now signed on to essay a role in Bejoy Nambiar’s David.
“Me and my co-producer of Balaji Telefilms just got tired of waiting for Vivek to make up his mind. What we didn’t understand is why Vivek chose to give us the impression he loved the script and that he was available.
Anyway, we already have a very strong alternative in mind. We’ll make the announcement soon,” said Gupta.
Now the role of Dawood Ibrahim lies vacant in Gupta’s film. So far the actors on board are John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Tusshar Kapoor, Ronit Roy and Shakti Kapoor’s son Siddhant, who makes his debut.
In the meantime, Vivek has signed Shaitan director, Bejoy Nambiar’s, David, in which he will play one of the protagonists. However, contrary to reports, Vivek doesn’t play a gangster in David.
Nambiar confirmed the development in his film, which already has Tamil star Vikram and Tabu in the cast.
Gupta has wished the director good luck for the movie.
“We’ve the highest regard for Bejoy. In fact, I loved his film Shaitan and rooted for it when I was part of an awards jury this year. I wish him well with Vivek,” he said.
