Vivek Oberoi has always been closely associated with his mother's NGO (Yashodhara Oberoi Foundation) and apart from providing care for the sick and the unfortunate. But for a young girl from Delhi, he went that extra mile.

Old hands
While travelling on the Delhi Metro, the girl met with an accident, and lost both her legs. When Vivek heard about the unfortunate incident, he decided to get her back on her feet with prosthetic legs. His research showed that German company the Otto Bock Corporation was the best in the business and is responsible for several innovations in prosthetics. The company has even provided relief action for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

A source reveals, "Vivek personally spoke to people connected to Otto Bock in India and arranged to get prosthetic legs for the girl." Vivek remembered meeting Sameer Jhaveri who lost both his legs in a train accident and had prosthetic legs; on Farah Khan's TV show Tere Mere Beach Mein.

He was very impressed with Sameer for overcoming with his handicap and gaining control of his life, and becoming a successful businessman. He decided to fly Sameer to Delhi to encourage and inspire the girl who was feeling down and out after the accident. They leave on May 21.

Vivek has also been talking to her and offering emotional support. When contacted he simply said, "I don't like talking about such things till things are done. I would rather do than talk."
