Vivek Oberoi's heart break:Later in a chat show with Farah Khan, Vivek poured his heart out. Farah asked Vivek if the lady he did all this for was grateful, "Lekin jinke liye aapne yeh sab kiya unhone kabhi bhi aap ka saath diya? Appreciated hua?" Vivek answered that he was called immature instead, "No! Ulta yeh hua ki "tum bahut immature ho." Apne industry mein ek dastoor hai - Jaise Tupperware jahan plastic ke dabbe banate hain ... usse zyada plastic hamare yahan hai. Plastic smile, plastic heart..plastic everything!

Farah asked if he was over Ash, "Kya aap poori tarah se unhe bhoola chuke hai?" Vivek laughed in agreement, "Unhe main bhula chukka hoon." And did he learn anything from the incident? "I've learnt that whatever you do, do it with your heart..listen to everyone but do what's right for you! Don't get frightened in difficult times and don't be overconfident or brash in good times - Maine yehi sikha hai ki 'jo bhi karna hai dilse karo, sabki suno khud ki karo, bure waqt pe ghabrana nahi aur acche waqt pe paglana nahin'."
