Vivek has collected stories based on his interaction with Maharashtra’s locals while researching for his charitable foundation Karrm Infrastructure. Rumor has it that he plans to make nine webisodes with nine unique stories out of these.
Currently, Vivek is on sky high for playing Vikrant Dhawan in Inside Edge. He said in a media interaction that digital media is free of the limitations of traditional Bollywood films.
