Salman and Vivek are gearing up for their forthcoming projects ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Sher’ respectively. Salman Khan’s not-so-good friend Vivek Oberoi has signed “Sher”. So who will prove to be “sher pe sawa sher” (one up) at box office? Vivek says ‘sher’ (lion) is bigger than a tiger.
Tell us: Who is bigger — Sher or Tiger? “We are all wildlife enthusiasts. As far as my knowledge is concerned, ‘sher’ is bigger than a tiger,” Vivek Oberoi told reporters in a light-hearted remark when asked about the two films.
Salman would be seen playing the role of a RAW agent in the Yash Raj film. The theatrical trailer is out and has garnered positive response. The movie is directed by Kabir Khan is slated to release in August.
Vivek’s ‘Sher’ is an action-thriller directed by Soham Shah. When reminded about Salman’s yet another upcoming film titled ‘Sher Khan’, Vivek said, “It is a good thing… the city is filled with ‘Sher(s)’.”
Relationship between the two actors soured a few years ago after a huge fight over Aishwarya Rai, when Vivek had called a press conference to say Salman had threatened him. Vivek was speaking today on the sidelines of launching the ‘Cigarette Bujhao Life Banao’ campaign to mark World Tobacco Day.
On smoking habits of actors like Salman and Shah Rukh Khan, Vivek said, “I know that they acknowledge that smoking is bad habit. But it’s an individual decision. Whatever you do, people take their own time to quit cigarette”
