For the third time in the recent past, the actor has been unceremoniously ousted from a project
Looks like Vivek Oberoi has lost yet another project. After losing out on Shiva's Bloody Paki, Sanjay Gupta's Shootout At Wadala, this time it is Bejoy Nambiar's second project David. Apparently the actor had problems with the role from the beginning.
The film is a three-story feature on three different characters all named David. Says our source, "Vivek had problems with his role from Day One. He kept wondering who were the actors playing the other roles. Then he even suggested that he play all three Davids. The suggestion was politely turned down by the director."
Finally, in a meeting held by the film's producers resulted in the decision to axe Vivek. Buzz is that efforts are on to replace Vivek with Neil Nitin Mukesh. While Vivek remained unavailable for comment, his business managers maintain he is still a part of the project.
Director Nambiar however said, "I can't say anything at the moment. My schedules for the film have gone for a toss. So I think there's some problem with Vivek's dates."
The young debutant from Speedy Singh, Vinay Virmani, might be cast as one of the three Davids in the film.
