In a recent interview with IANS, Vivek Oberoi who will be seen playing a cop in the upcoming streaming series Dharavi Bank spoke about playing the character of a cop with sense of dignity.

"It is important to dignify men in uniform. It's a noble profession that commands respect from the artistic community. As writers, creators and even in the audience, we need to make the extra effort to get it right on screen. I wanted to bring in gravitas to the part. I researched extensively and spoke to my friends who are cops about their experiences, their challenges," he said.

"In the end every fiction series is indeed a dramatic retelling but it is upon the actor to ensure it's as close to reality as possible. From getting the day-to-day cop jargon right, to getting the body language, the walk, the psyche, I went all out to ensure that this depiction of what a cop from the Mumbai Police force is like doesn't resemble past and present screen renditions. I am glad that the response is so positive and heartwarming. It truly makes all the work feel worth it," Oberoi added.

Directed by Samit Kakkad, Dharavi Bank also stars Suniel Shetty in his streaming series debut, along with Sonali Kulkarni who plays a politician, it is a gangster versus cop story and is currently streaming on MX Player.
