As he turns 39, here's taking a look at his professional and personal life.

Vishal Bhardwaj's critically acclaimed Omkara (2006), which was a remake of Shakespeare's Othello, was a much-needed hit for Vivek, who played the role of Kesu, based on Cassio from the play.

But his critical acclaim for Omkara's was undone by Naksha (2006) which was deemed as a disastrous remake of The Rundown. Vivek was believed to have been going through a rough patch, both in his personal and professional life during the time this movie was released.

The controversial Kurbaan (2009) had Vivek playing the role of an American-Indian man. His acting was appreciated by many. It was obvious that he had graduated as an actor over the years.
