Vivek Oberoi is perhaps one of the most interesting celebrities in the Hindi film industry, making a dynamic debut with the critical and commercial success Saathiya (2002) and then doing unique roles cementing his name as a good actor.

However, everything changed when his relationship with Aishwarya Rai became public and the resulting controversy it created with Salman Khan led to a decline in roles and general popularity. Now, Vivek Oberoi opened up about his time experience in Bollywood during an appearance at the India Global Forum in London.

What Did Vivek Oberoi Say?

Vivek Oberoi appearing on a panel for a segment called ‘Adversity into Opportunity’ spoke about his struggles in his professional career as an actor and how the impact of industry power dynamics affected him quite strongly.

He also talked about his Project Devi standing for Development and Empowerment of Vrindavan Girls Initiative and how it has managed to empower 15,000 girls over the years so far.

Oberoi spoke about how it initially started with just rescuing a group of girls but eventually transitioned into rehabilitation.

“I said ‘how do we Empower them?’ We empower them with free food free education free health care and their ability to think, now that the primary needs are taken care of, to start to think differently,” he commented.

He spoke at length about how it’s important to start making girls believe in themselves.

Further, he also spoke about how girls usually want to be like their mothers, however, that was not the case with these girls.

He said, “I have a 9-year-old daughter who wants to be just like my wife. She wants to be just like Mom. But all these girls, I haven’t seen a single one of them when they come into our organisations, who want to be like their mom. They want to be anything but their mom. They want anything but their life, the story, the journey of their moms.”
