New Delhi: This Valentine's weekend Vivek Oberoi is set to be back on the silver screen to repeat his 'Saathiya' act in his upcoming film 'Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story'. The comedy caper will see shades of Aditya from 'Saathiya' and Chandu from 'Company' in Vivek's new film. 'Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story' revolves around the life of a small time gangster who falls in love with his biggest enemy. Vivek Oberoi will reprise his popular 'bhaigiri' avatar in the film .
The film has an underline theme of romance and shows how two people unknowingly fall in love. The film also stars Neha Sharma, who was last seen in 'Kya Super Kool Hain Hum'. Vivek Oberoi and Neha Sharma have been paired up for the first time for a romantic-comedy.
Vivek Oberoi catapulted to success after his first release 'Company' and later 'Saathiya' did wonders for the actor at the box-office. But, with only a handful of hits in his kitty, Vivek Oberoi has been struggling to find his foot in the industry yet again. Will Vivek be able to do justice to his role in 'Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story'? Will debut director Vinnil Markan be able to give Vivek Oberoi his hit after a long time?
