Vivek Anand Oberoi

Vivek's career graph, at best, can be described as 'rocky'. The actor had once tried fiddling with the spelling of his name and altered it to 'Viveik', in search of luck, we believe. But, even the changed name couldn't find him the luck he was aiming for. He is back to being 'Vivek' now. The actor, born as Vivek Anand Oberoi, had initially omitted 'Anand' from his name as romancing heroines around trees, carrying a name like that, to him, was belittling the Hindu saint of the same name, Swami Vivekananda. However, he now likes to be known as 'Vivek Anand Oberoi', as evident from his social media handles.
