Sushmita Sen is promoting Matrubhoomi

The grapevine is abuzz with the rumours that Suresh Oberoi is all set to don a new robe. Perhaps taking a cue from his peers, who turned to film production and direction subsequently, it is learnt that Oberoi Sr. is planning to start a film with son Vivek Oberoi and ‘good friend’ Aishwarya Rai essaying principal roles.

Though Oberoi Sr. has been maintaining a low profile of late, he did make it a point to issue a clarification on this development. I’ve taken a 3-year break from work, he enlightens me, I want to enjoy my golf before I return to the studios.

So what happens to the film production and direction plans? Believe me, there’ve been offers aplenty to start a film. People have approached me time and again to take the plunge; they’re ready to back the project financially. But I don’t have the temperament to either produce or direct a film, he clarifies.

The actor, who left an impression with his very first film EK BAAR PHIR [with Deepti Naval; 1980], is also taking it easy on the acting front. Just recently, Anil Sharma approached me to enact a key role in his new film AB TUMHARE HAWALE WATAN SAATHIYO, since he felt that whenever we’ve worked together [SHRADDHANJALI, GADAR], the films have worked in a big way. But I excused myself since I’ve decided to stay away from studios for the time being, he divulges.

In the meanwhile, Oberoi Sr. is busy concentrating on the careers of his two children, son Vivek and daughter Meghna. While Vivek is already acting in a string of prestigious projects currently, Meghna is busy pursuing a career in singing. After cutting a remix album VADA KARO, the youngster has recorded her first song under Anand Raaj Anand’s baton in MASTI. The song will be filmed on Tara Sharma.
