When Vivek talked about the one thing he learnt from his past relationships

In the same interview, Vivek Oberoi talked about the learnings he has gotten from all the past relationships of his. He revealed how those phases of his life made him realise that having a hero complex in reel life had no relation with that in real life. In his words:

“Each serious relationship teaches you. It leaves you with something. The bad breakups, the really toxic relationships teach you your patterns. They teach you what you should stay away from. Like I discovered that some of us have a hero complex, where you come in like a knight in shining armour, and say, I will take care of this for you.”
