MUMBAI - Vivek Oberoi, who will tie the knot with Priyanka Alva Friday, is so much in love with his wife-to-be that he has started penning poetry about her.
One of his poems to Priyanka reads - “In a world of only two people who are each other’s world”
“I don’t know how you got that, but those are my lines to her,” said Vivek, 34.
“We’ve discovered a whole universe in each other’s life. I’ve found the love of my life. It was an arranged-cum-love-’zyada’ marriage. Every day with her is a blessing. In a world full of storms, she’s my anchor. I live in a world of masks. I needed someone as real as she is. She is my home. She’s the one I can come home to me. She has changed my life,” he said.
Vivek, who entered Bollywood with Ram Gopal Varma’s “Company” in 2002, was earlier engaged to model-turned-entrepreneur Gurpreet Gill. But they broke off and later the actor was linked to Aishwarya Rai.
Though Priyanka’s father is no more, her mother adores Vivek, who is the son of seasoned actor Suresh Oberoi.
“She’s (Vivek’s mother-in-law-to-be) a major exponent of art. Our two families have been friends for years. And if I may say so, my family has earned great respect and dignity beyond cinema.
“Even on a personal level, it has taken me a long time to overcome the cynicism about my work outside movies. If you are sincere about what you do, respect finally has to come your way,” said the actor who was recently seen in the biopic on slain factionist-turned-politician Paritala Ravi in “Rakta Charitra”.
