Though everyone associated with the film is tightlipped, news about stars jumping into Vishal Bhardwaj's Shakespearean bandwagon Othello continues to leak out.

The director has zeroed in on Viveik Oberoi to play Cassius in the Shakespearean tragedy.

Viveik has just completed Indra Kumar's Pyare Mohan and is gung-ho about his second comedy with the filmmaker.

"It going great," says Viveik. "Some people had a problem identifying with the risqué humour in Indu-ji'sMasti. In Pyare Mohan there'll be no such problem."

The vibes between Pyare and Mohan Viveik and Fardeen Khan are perfect. Nowadays, Viveik makes sure he hits it off well with his male co-stars. John Abraham in Kaal, Aftab Shivdasani and Riteish Deshmukh in Masti are some of his lately acquired pals.
