Vivek Oberoi

Actor Vivek Oberoi is planning a special screening of his new release,


, for underprivileged children in Vrindavan this week.“I want to have a special screening for the children of Project Devi in Vrindavan,” said Vivek. Project Devi is an NGO supported by the actor that keeps underprivileged girls who have been abandoned by their families “There are 1,200 children there but in Vrindavan there is no 1,200 seat theatre, so I will have to divide them into two groups for two shows. My 1,200 small angels are very excited to see the film with me,” he added.

The actor who is inundated by appreciation for his implausible stunts in


, is doubly happy to be able to make his parents proud by his performance. “My parents are very happy. I think nothing can be bigger than parents’ happiness,” said Vivek. “We saw the trial together and then I went up to my dad (Suresh Oberoi). I was a bit nervous because he is my biggest critic and I have a huge respect for him, not just as a father but as an actor too. He hugged me, kissed my forehead and said, ‘I am so proud of you. Well done’,” he added.

Vivek further mentioned: “He took me aside and said not to tell mom that those stunts were done by me and not any stuntmen, otherwise I would get a good beating from her."
