Actors are normally fierce competitors but here's one case of one actor supporting and encouraging the other. When Vivek Oberoi was going through a slump, Hrithik Roshan gave him a book, Power of Love A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment, written by Eckhart Tolle a book that VO admits has helped him in pulling his life together.
Vivek admits that Hrithik's gift has changed his life to a large extent, "Hrithik is one of my dearest friends. He's always been supportive of me in my most trying times. I was going through a very low patch professionally and personally and especially low in self-confidence when he gifted me this book. Hrithik told me 'I know it sounds cheesy but it has really changed my life.' He told me he had applied to his personal life and it had helped him a lot."
When Vivek first saw the cover of the book he started laughing, "I thought it was cheesy but gradually, when I started reading it helped me hugely and changed my life. The book is about a spiritual journey to find one's true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality."
Hrithik's gesture is not limited to the book, Vivek adds. "Many a time, when Hrithik has seen me in my lowest ebb, he has hugged me and offered me support. He's one of the few friends I can always count on to be always there for me. I love that despite being so young, Hrithik is so wise and zenned out peacefully blissful. Recently, Hrithik couldn't attend the IIFA in Bankok and watched VO's performance during a telecast and sent the Company actor an encouraging SMS, saying that he'd done a good job. "I was thrilled at such a compliment coming from him as I consider him the God of dancing."
