'Plastic smile and heart': Vivek on Ash, films

September 11, 2009 09:47 IST

In a revealing interview to Farah Khan on her show on Star Plus, Tere Mere Beech Mein, Vivek Oberoi spoke his mind about his ex -- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, films and his infamous tiff with Salman Khan.

The revealing promos of the show were aired on many news channels on Thursday night. Tere Mere Beech Mein will be aired on Sunday.

When Farah quizzed him on what triggered him to call a press conference to vent his anger against Salman, Vivek replied, "Uss waqt mere aaspas bahut log the aur woh apni 'RAI' dete the.' Farah interrupted Vivek saying, "Accha word chunna aapne, 'RAI' (You choose a good word 'RAI' (Opinion)

Vivek amended the word saying, "Mashwarra dete the and I went by their word. Moreover I was young that time and my father (Suresh Oberoi) too was not in town when I took that decision."

Vivek also said that it hurt him when people whom he trusted didn't stand by him during his hour of crisis.

Vivek was dating Aishwary Rai in 2003. She had just split up with Salman Khan, who then called Vivek and threatened him to stay away from Aishwarya. In response, Vivek called a press conference in April 2003 and told the media about how Salman misbehaved with him.

Post the debacle of their film, Kyon Ho Gaya Na and then Vivek's Home Delivery, Aishwarya broke off with Vivek.

On a final note, Vivek said, "There is less plastic in Tupperware factory than our film industry. People with plastic smile and plastic heart."
