Actor Vivek Oberoi says he has
taken failures in career in his stride and is not worried about his
position in the industry.
"I am not worried where I stand in the industry... I
am very happy today. I feel in life people forget to be
appreciative and thankful. I want to be thankful to everyone
for giving me chance in their films. There are millions of
people who are so talented but don't get a break in the
industry," Vivek told PTI.
The actor who essayed memorable performances in films
like Saathiya, Masti, Omkara and Shootout at
Lokhandwala, has of late delivered a series of flops
including films like Mission Istanbul, Prince, Kurbaan,
Kismat Love Paisa Dilli and others.
"I am here in the industry for close to ten years now.
I have won praises for most of my performances, won awards,
made a lot of money and earned a lot of respect and love. I
have got so many things that I am thankful to everyone rather
than complaining for things that did not happen," the actor
Vivek, who entered Bollywood in Ram Gopal Verma's
Company, feels that happiness in Bollywood context must not
be linked to how much a film is raking in at Box Office.
"For me the important thing in life is to stay happy.
One must learn to be happy not depending on anything else and
not put conditions for being happy. I think one must not
connect things like if my film makes Rs 100 crore or Rs 200
crore then I will be happy. It is a silly thing now," the
When asked if he regrets doing some films in his
career, Vivek said, "I don't regret doing any films. If it is
a flop what can I do and if a hit what will I say. You can't
change your opinion on anything just on the success or failure
of a film. My films have been flop and I accept it, I worked
hard for all of them," he said.
Post Sanjay Gupta's Shootout at Lokhandwala, none of
Vivek's movie did well.
"After Shootout Lokhandwala, I partied for one
year... I did not do any work then I did Mission Istanbul
which was a flop, then I did 'Prince' it made money but was
not a hit, Rakta Charitra did well in south but not here. I
did Kurbaan, unfortunately it too did not do well," Vivek
The actor will soon be in Kumar Taurani's
romantic-crime home production Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story,

which is set to hit the screens on February 22.
He is also working with Rakesh Roshan in his
