Vivek Oberoi awarded the WHO award

The World Health Organization (WHO) awarded Bollywood star Vivek Oberoi with the Special Director’s General Award. And that’s because the Masti bhara star encouraged the present generation Yuva and Company to take the anti-smoking Road and say Darna Zaroori Hai to the ill effects of tobacco by campaigning against the use of tobacco on the World No Tobacco Day on May 31. Vivek who played the WHO ambassador for tobacco control campaign featured in a video clipping last year, which was aired on various television channels and over 50 cinema halls. He was also involved with the Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA). Incidentally Vivek also inspired and encouraged his father Suresh Oberoi to quit smoking.
