It seems the Prince of Bollywood is on a permanent – and well-deserved – high these days. With less than a month left for his much-awaited wedding to Priyanka Alva and the release of Rakht Charitra, for Vivek Oberoi, the next few weeks will be particularly life-changing.
During the last week, Vivek visited the UK to participate in a string of charity events for which he was a special guest. Oberoi is well-known for his social and charity work and has visited the UK many times in order to raise funds for Project Devi. Speaking to the BBC, Oberoi revealed his gratefulness to the people of the UK. “I love coming to the UK. The people here just love you and they have such big hearts. I always go back home on a high.”
When quizzed about his arranged marriage and his first meeting with his fiancee, the actor said, “This is something I’ve never really spoken about”. He talked about how his parents had been looking for a girl for him for some time and when they came across Priyanka, they encouraged him to meet her. He said that they began conversing over emails and some time later, their first meeting took place in Florence.
The actor described the dreamy and somewhat perfect first meeting between him and his love as they talked whilst watching the sunset on a bridge in the city. He said that it was at that point that he knew she was the one for him. “She is a prayer answered”, he mushily said. It seems like the perfect “arranged” love story!
During Oberoi’s weekend in London, the two lovebirds were spotted together. A source revealed that they both “looked very happy” and in total enjoyment of each other’s company. A long time coming? Yes! The actor had confessed in an earlier interview that he had almost given up on love…until Priyanka came along. We wish them much happiness! Keep it locked into BollySpice for news of the Oberoi wedding which will be taking place on 29 October.
