A new chapter in the life of Vivek Oberoi begins now. The talented actor considered by many to be amongst the most eligible bachelors of Bollywood is all set to tie the knot. Vivek has found his soul-mate in the daughter of well-known danseuse Nandini Alva and late Janata Dal leader (U) Dr. Jeevaraj Alva, Bangalore based Priyanka Alva. The lady in question was chosen by Vivek’s parents Suresh and Yashodara Oberoi. The star, who holds strong values and respect for family and marriage, took his time before giving an emphatic yes to their choice.
Priyanka graduated with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration from Royal Holloway, University of London in 2003. She continued her educational pursuits in the multi-dimensional fields of her evolving interests including a non-certified course at the Martha Graham School of Dance in New York and a course in Administration and Fund Raising for Non-Profit Organizations from NYU. A spiritual, determined yet soft hearted personality, Priyanka is deeply committed to being a harbinger of environmental awareness and social change thus making her a very eclectic persona.
Overjoyed at their son’s union with the lovely lady, a beaming Suresh Oberoi said, “It is a very big day for us and we are extremely happy to see our son settle down. Priyanka for sure is the ideal girl for Vivek and we can’t be happier at her inclusion into the Oberoi family.” The obviously glowing mother, Yashodara Oberoi who has always had Vivek as her favorite is grateful to God as she sees her son settle down with the lovely Priyanka. Says Mrs. Oberoi, “I am happy we have found someone as gracious as Priyanka who is a perfect blend of traditional values and modern thinking.”
Says Vivek’s publicist, on his behalf says, “He is elated!! Overjoyed with the new developments in his life… 2010, his 8th year in Bollywood has certainly taken things upwards in his career and personal life. He thanks everyone for all the love, support and good wishes. All I can say is one of the most eligible bachelors will be hitched soon.”
