VivekActor Vivek Oberoi, who is inundated by appreciation for his implausible stunts in Prince, is doubly happy to be able to make his parents happy by his performance and feel proud of him.

"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.

Directed by debutant director Kookie Gulati, Prince narrates the story of a thief (Vivek) who wakes up one morning to realise he has lost his memory and that his life is at stake.

Actors Nandana Sen, Aruna Shields and Neeru Singh play the female leads in the film.

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."

Vivek runs a school in Vrindavan, named Project Devi, for underprivileged girls who have been abandoned by their families and he is planning to make a special screening of Prince for them.

"I want to do a special screening for the children in Project Devi in Vrindavan. 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 shows. My 1,200 small angels are very excited to see the film with me," said Vivek.

Asked if he believes that the blessings of those children have brought him success, he said: "Most definitely. If you do some good work, being true to your heart, the blessings you get for it are incomparable. More important than any thing else, that take you to another level, at least spiritually you are very happy by that."
