Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi recently attended wedding of an acid attack survivor Lalita. The actor, who was shooting in Serbia since last month, came back to India recently and being a man of his word, he not only attended Lalita’s wedding but also gifted her, her new house key!
Yes, Vivek gifted her an apartment in Thane Mumbai. Vivek praised Lalita and said, “Lalita is a true hero because she has proved to thousands of acid attack survivors and given them a new hope to live their life like a normal human being.” Well, we think that it is incredibly sweet of him to support an acid attack survivor and giving back to the society.”
Vivek’s presence made things special for the couple. Not just that, Bollywood designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla prepared Lalita’s wedding dress and also gifted her a necklace.
According to sources, “Vivek had met Lalita at a function in March where he got to know about her problems and the fact that she was homeless. The actor had promised her that he will gift her a house in his affordable housing project, Karrm.”
Lalitha got a wrong number by Rahul Kumar who works as a CCTV operator in Mumbai. The duo found love in each other and two months after the wrong number, they decided to tie the knot.
In 2012, Lalitha was allegedly attacked with acid by her cousins over a family dispute. She has so far undergone 17 surgeries. There are 12 more surgeries she needs to undergo. She became a member of Acid Survivors Saahas Foundation in 2016. The Foundation got the marriage registered in a Thane court on April 13.
