Vivek Oberoi encourages farmer’s recycling initiative
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.
