"My father told me, 'I am very proud of you for being so brave. Being a hero, you accepted the role of a super villain and that too opposite a superhero like Krrish, a favourite in India'," the 37-year-old said here Friday at a special screening of "Krrish 3" for children.
His father also appreciated how, while Hrithik Roshan has played Krrish by jumping from buildings and doing all kinds of stunts, Vivek, as Kaal, performed very well with his face and fingers.
For Vivek, his praise was special.
"It felt good because he is a father and when such a talented and senior actor praises you it always feels good," he added.
