Actor Vivek Oberoi says he got to relive two of his past characters - Chandu of Company and Aditya of Saathiya, in one character itself in Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story.

"(Filmmaker) Kumar Tauraniji called me and said, 'There is a perfect script for you'. Vinnil Markan narrated the story. What I liked the most in Jayantabhai Ki... was that there is a goon similar to Company and a loverboy similar to [the one I played in] Saathiya," the 36-year-old said on Friday in an interview.

"I found this very exciting that I will get to play both shades and [so] I said yes," he added.

Vivek also spotted one similarity between his real life and his character Jayantabhai.

"I am a simple boy in real life. But one thing is similar between the character and me - when [my wife] Priyanka tells me something to do, I can never say no to her. She also knows that I will never say no to her. It is the same is in the film - when Simran asks for something, Jayanta cannot say no," Vivek said.

Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story, releasing on February 15, features Neha Sharma opposite Vivek.
