Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Ac­tor Vivek Oberoi (left), who was shoot­ing for his forth­com­ing film in a vil­lage near Ma­ha­rash­tra, was greatly im­pressed by a farmer’s fam­ily who make or­ganic sweets and eco-friendly lanterns with re­cy­clable and for­est ma­te­rial. The 39-year-old gave them a pre-or­der of 7,000 lanterns and 50 dozen til lad­doos (sesame sweet­meats), which he plans to dis­trib­ute among the pa­tients of the NGO, Can­cer Pa­tients Aid As­so­ci­a­tion, and girls of his Devi foundation in Vrin­da­van.

“I strongly be­lieve that we need to en­cour­age th­ese ini­tia­tives. En­cour­age­ment is the best way to sup­port,” said Vivek, who walked the ramp for the cause of can­cer pa­tients on his fifth wed­ding an­niver­sary ear­lier this month.
