Vivek Oberoi keen to play custom officer


Actor Vivek Oberoi wants to play an officer of the Customs and Excise department as he finds they have interesting stories to share.

"When I interact with some of the customs officials, they are always in their attractive uniform and I feel to play the role customs official in one of my movies. 

"I think their uniform is attractive and they have interesting stories to share like how they trapped the accused, how they got a tip off a certain illegal activity or how they catch smugglers," Vivek said at the Central Excise Celebration 2017 on Friday.

The actor added that it will be a fascinating on screen performance.

During the media interaction, the Saathiya' actor commented on CBFC controversy relating to banning film "Lipstick Under My Burkha".

"In a democratic country, censorship should have a guideline. People should be allowed what they want to communicate as long as it is not hurting anybody's sentiments and doesn't provoke any anti-national feeling," he said.

At the professional front, Vivek Oberoi will be seen next in Rai which is an upcoming biographical film written and directed by Ram Gopal Varma.
