Actor Vivek Oberoi, who will be seen in Sanjay Khanduri’s Kismat Love Paisa Dilli (KLPD), that released yesterday, says he has tried to challenge his acting skills in the film and that he is ready to bear the consequences.

“Some of my films are challenges,and some are safe bets. With KLPD, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone. I knew it might not work and people might laugh at me, but I was ready for it,” says the 36-year-old.

Oberoi, who plays a Delhi guy in the film, says that essaying the role was not easy. “The character was totally new for me. I have never played such a role before. He checks out girls, flirts with them. I had never done all this. Even in my college days, I had not been like this. In Mumbai, we are a little more polished. I had to learn all this, I had to go to the Delhi University. I spent time with the hostel boys. I learned their whole vocabulary and the way they talk,” says Oberoi, who’s been part of hit films such as Saathiya (2002), Omkara (2006) and Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007) in the past. Oberoi will feature in KLPD along with Mallika Sherawat.  IANS
