Indian actor Vivek Oberoi, who is in Sri Lanka for the International Indian Film Awards (IIFA), said that he will be embarking on several projects in the island to promote tourism and also help children affected by the conflict in the north.
The actor, in a short interview to Daily Mirror online, also praised Sri Lanka and its people including the women saying they are beautiful and makes him feel thankful to God to be single.
“I was here about 14 years ago for the Singer cup. I loved the hospitality, the warmth, the lovely people. And experiencing that again this time around is great. The beaches are still beautiful. The women are just lovely. These are times you thank God your single,” the actor said.
Oberoi also praised the Sri Lankan government for its support to some of his humanitarian projects which he will be doing in Sri Lanka in collaboration with the IIFA foundation.
The Indian actor will attend the main IIFA awards on Saturday and also take part in several side events including a fashion show and charity cricket match. (Daily Mirror online)
