Getting a gangster demeanor right may be a cakewalk for Vivek Oberoi, who has worked in multiple movies in that genre. But being cast as former underworld don, Muthappa Rai, in Ram Gopal Varma's next demands intense prep.
Along with a major physical transformation, Vivek will have to learn Kannada. Luckily for him, he found a tutor at home for learning the Kannada language. Vivek's wife Priyanka Alva Oberoi, who hails from Karnataka has been helping him get nuances and innotations in Kannada right.
“Since Vivek plays a gangster turned businessman based in Bangalore, scenes require him to speak that language fluently. He will also be dubbing for the movie in Kannada,” says a source.
Vivek Oberoi says, “Muthappa Rai is a larger than life character who belongs to Bangalore and I have to get his mother tongue right. Learning Kannada is tough, but I am happy and blessed to have an instructor right here at home.”
Will this be another successful Maya Dolas kind of character for Vivek, well time alone can tell!!
