Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi is all set to turn a father soon. The actor’s wife Priyanka Alva is currently two months pregnant.
The joy’s for the Oberoi family don’t end there as Vivek Oberoi’s sister Meghna Oberoi too is pregnant and due around the same time as Priyanka.
“Vivek is elated with this happy coincidence. Both Priyanka and Meghna are due around the same time (February-March). The entire family is very happy especially, Vivek’s parents — veteran actor Suresh Oberoi and Yashodahra Oberoi,” said a close friend of the family to a daily.
“He (Vivek) is in a happy place. Not only is he preparing to become a father, he also has some big films lined up over the next couple of years,” he added.
Vivek Oberoi is currently on a career high as he has big movies like ‘Kismat Love Paisa Dilli’ (with Mallika Sherawat), Kumar Taurani’s ‘Jayantabhai Ki Love Story’, ‘Krrish 3’ (alongside Hrithik Roshan), ‘Zilla Ghaziabad’ (alongside Sanjay Dutt) and Indra Kumar’s ‘Grand Masti’ lined up for this and upcoming year.
The actor has requested all his directors to give him time off in February so that he can spend time with his wife and new born.
“He’s requested everyone to give him time off for around 20 days in February, so he can be with Priyanka at that time. Since he is shooting for back-to-back films, he wants to finish work in advance,” the source said.
“Indra’s film might release around February-March. Vivek’s already had a word with him about taking leave,” the source added.
Vivek Oberoi is excited to turn an uncle too as he close with his sister, who married Amit Bama in 2008.
“Vivek is very close to his sister. But he isn’t talking about any of the pregnancies,” the source concluded.
Vivek Oberoi tied the knot with Priyanka Alva, daughter of Karnataka Minister Jeevaraj Alva, in Bangalore in 2010.
We congratulate the couple.
