Mumbai: 2012 seems to be Vivek Oberoi's year, with the actor to be seen yet again as an action hero in several films this year. But he regrets not being part of Bijoy Nambiar's debut film "Shaitaan".

But, now he has signed Nambiar's next, titled "David".

"Whoever has seen 'Shaitaan' knows Bijoy is phenomenally talented. Bijoy invited me to see his film and when I went, I told him it's a fabulous film... something new and something different. Bijoy turned around and said I pursued you for three months to act in this film," Oberoi told reporters here.

"And that's when I realized that with the whole system, unfortunately a lot of good things, unnecessarily at times, get filtered. You don't get actors to some genuinely talented people. Apparently, he (Nambiar) sent me the script and the script never reached me. That time I committed whatever he was doing next, I will be the part of it."

"It was very sweet of him that the minute he was ready with the script, he called me up I read the script and I loved it," he added.

Besides "David", Oberoi is currently shooting for "Krrish 3" and is getting positive response from his co-star Hrithik Roshan. He couldn't stop praising Roshan.

"Hrithik is very loving and warm person. When he saw me performing he made a gesture and said 'I want to give you a hug, man'. When I was done with my shot he said it was an awesome performance. When you get that kind of encouragement from your co star who is doing so well, it feels great. There is no insecurity, no negativity on sets."
