Actor Vivek Oberoi says director Ram Gopal Varma is a 'genius' when it comes to making gangster and underworld crime drama films. The 39 year old actor, who made an impressive debut in 2002 with "Company", is once again teaming up with Varma for its sequel, "Company 2".
"I believe he is an eccentric genius. I am not worried about doing ''Company 2'' with him. Even I have seen the highs and lows in my career but we all bounce back. He is a genius when it comes to dealing with gangster and underworld films. I am fan of his such work," he said.
"Company" was a fictional expose on Mumbai's underworld loosely based on Dawood Ibrahim's terror outfit, D-Company and had actors Ajay Devgn, Manisha Koirala and Mohanlal. "It was 14 years ago he gave me a great beginning in the film industry with 'Company'. He brought out the best in me...It is one of the milestones of my career. The first part had achieved cult status. We want to make sure the second part is equally exciting. We are taking every step carefully.''
"It is too early to give out details about my role as he is working on the script." Vivek is also turning a producer with "Company 2" and apprised that the film will be made in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, casting for which is currently underway. "It is my first production and I don't want to disappoint people. So we are working very hard on getting everything correct.'' The film will go on the floors in mid of this year.
