Vivek Oberoi’s no smoking zone
Mumbai: Bollywood star Vivek Oberoi is known to have his own style at sets and is respected for that. It is known in Bollywood circles that Vivek Oberoi is the brand ambassador for World Health Organisation’s anti-smoking movement. He not only stays away from smoking but also avoids passive smoking and says that when someone smokes on the movie sets, he leaves that place.
Vivek on World No Smoking Day which is on May 31st said “There is absolutely no smoking allowed on my sets. If anyone smokes, I always leave the set and go out” Vivek told reporters Friday at an event to celebrate the World No Tobacco Day, which is on May 31. It was organised by Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA). When reporters asked him what does he do when his co-stars smoke, he said that he doesn’t enter their van.
The 35-year-old, who has a decade-long association with the CPAA, said: “I always try to help whatever good organisation, which is serving the cause of humanity selflessly. I have been with CPAA for 10 years now”. Vivek spellbound viewers with his performance in films like ‘Company’, ‘Saathiya’, ‘Yuva’ and ‘Raktha Charitra’. Vivek says his mother is his inspiration. He says “She is my hero. She has been serving cancer patients since so many years now. She goes to hospitals, makes homemade food for the patients and talks to them.”
