Vivek Oberoi funds a Robotic Centre in Nagpur

DSC_0292Nagpur: It’s been two years since Vivek Oberoi was seen on the big screen but the actor has a lot more on his plate that just diaper-duty for his baby daughter, Ameyaa Nirvana.

Vivek was today in Nagpur to involve himself with the Advanced Centre of Robotics in Nagpur. The idea came to him after a meeting with the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis, at a tech summit in Germany.

“The goal is to create a world class centre for the youth of India. Our students shouldn’t be left behind in leading the technological revolution through robotic applications,” said Vivek.

Being a Mumbai boy, what prompted him to fund the centre at Nagpur University? “What difference does it make if I sponsor Nagpur or Mumbai University?” he told media few days back.

“It ultimately benefits the country.” And since he will be funding the institute, the Robotic Centre will be named after the Oberois -his parents, wife and children. “But we haven’t taken a call on that yet,” adds the actor
