“I am not a product of nepotism. I don’t have a star parent or a relative in this film industry to back me or take me forward in my initial days and now. I am creating a niche for myself in this industry with my own dedication and hard work.”
This is what actor, model and singer Vivek Jaitly said to CineSpeaks on Friday, speaking on the sidelines of Valentine’s Day and the occasion of release of teaser of his latest romantic single ‘Teri Meri Gal Ban Ju’ as a singer, lyricist and actor. The single that has been exclusively shot on beautiful beaches of Thailand, will be released on 22nd of this month by ArtCart Media on various online channels including YouTube.
The single has music by Riyaazi and features Eshanya Maheshwari opposite him.Vivek Jaitly is a well-known name and face in print and electronic advertisement world, and has also done many TV serials. But since last few years he has been saying no to any offers for television productions and presently is fully concentrating on his film career. His perseverance has paid off sweetly; he has recently completed shooting for a horror romantic film in a lead role, and this film is expected to be released in July this year.”It is a very good movie with a different kind of approach to the horror element in it. Though I can’t reveal the name of the film as yet owing to some professional commitments. I am surely marching ahead in my career with my dedication and I believe in my dreams. I am confident that one day I will shine like a star,” Vivek added further.
Having commercials for brands like Lux, Chevelrot, Racold, Blackberrys Menswear and many more under his belt as a model, Vivek has done many print ads also for various national and international brands, and also given voice for a number of TV commercials. And before ‘Teri Meri Gal Ban Ju’, he has released two singles featuring as lead actor. The single ‘Akela Hoon Main’ was sung by noted Bollywood singer Mohd. Irfan and was shot exclusively in beautiful locales of Maldives. It gave Vivek a different identity in the industry. His other single titled ‘Naina Tere’, released on Zee Music, had him not only as a lead actor but also as lyricist and singer of the song.As a strong-willed and level-headed person, Vivek has his priorities cut out very clearly. He has been regularly getting offers for films and TV serials, but he says he is not in any hurry. “For me, good work matters more than any numbers,” he asserts.
