Vivek Oberoi Talks About his Wife-to-be Priyanka Alva

Vivek Oberoi, who will tie the knot with Priyanka Alva on Friday (October 29), is so much in love and is so besotted with his wife-to-be that he has started penning/writing poetry about her.

One of his poems to Priyanka reads - "In a world of only two people who are each other's world…"

Vivek Oberoi With Priyanka Alva

Vivek Oberoi has turned into a hopeless romantic. Vivek says, "We've discovered a whole universe in each other's life. I've found the love of my life. It was an arranged-cum-love-'zyada' marriage. Every day with her is a blessing. In a world full of storms, she's my anchor. I live in a world of masks. I needed someone as real as she is. She is my home. She's the one I can come home to me. She has changed my life," he said.

Though Priyanka’s father is no more, her mother adores Vivek. “She’s (Vivek's mother-in-law-to-be) a major exponent of art. Our two families have been friends for years. My family has earned great respect and dignity beyond cinema.Even on a personal level, it has taken me a long time to overcome the cynicism about my work outside movies. If you are sincere about what you do, respect finally has to come your way," said the actor who was recently seen in the biopic on slain factionist-turned-politician Paritala Ravi in 'Rakta Charitra'.

Though Priyanka was horrified with the actor’s performance in the recently-released Rakht Charitra. It seems after watching the violence in the film, Priyanka hoped aloud that she would never want to see such anger in Vivek. The actor assuaged her worries saying that mindless anger usually fades away as one ages and matures and that he had realised the consequences of anger from his past experiences.

Priyanka has been in and out of Mumbai lately overlooking the construction of the couple’s dream house in Juhu. Says Vivek, “The process of building a home has brought us much closer. She’s really good at aesthetics. Of course, I will continue to stay with my parents. That can never change.”

About the marriage, Vivek says, “It was arranged kam love zyada. Within 20 minutes I felt I had known her all my life. She belongs to Karnataka’s closely-knit Bunt community. Her grandfather fought the Freedom Movement side by side with Gandhiji.”

That’s the past and about their future, Vivek adds, “Priyanka has her dancing. I have my acting. But our social work is the food for our soul.”

The wedding will have limited attendance though, Vivek tells us. “It’s in Bangalore but the reception in Mumbai is for all my friends within and outside the film industry.”

A honeymoon has not been planned yet. Vivek adds, “I’ve the most understanding wife. I requested her to postpone the honeymoon because of my workload. We will be going on a really special honeymoon in December.” And Vivek is a new person now

Deepika Padukone and Sidhartha Mallya Judge Models at Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar Girl Hunt 2011

Hunt for the Kingfisher Calender Girl 2011: Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone and Sidhartha Mallya, the owner of Kingfisher Airlines, judged models for the Kingfisher Calendar 2011 in Mumbai on October 26. The scion to a leading liquor business empire, Siddharth Mallya made sure his gal, actress Deepika Padukone looked her best as they made their way to a suburban five-star, where they would judge 15 girls vying to be a calendar girl on the Mallyas' prestigious annual swimsuit calendar.

Many aspiring models took part in the contest with the hope of appearing in the limited edition Kingfisher swimsuit calendar.

This year, too, ace lensman Atul Kasbekar will shoot the entire calendar.

Padukone said models have to be not only good-looking, but also intelligent. "I think apart from just a great body and a great face, it's also very important for the girls to be smart, witty and intelligent, because at the end of the day it's not just the way you look, I think it's the entire package. And I think that's what really takes one forward in life, if you really want to become successful. So I am looking for someone who is, you know, not just good looking but also very, very intelligent," said Padukone.

Mallya said that it was one of the biggest platforms for aspiring models. He also complimented the models, saying they were bold and beautiful.

In addition to Deepika, Sidhartha and Kasbekar, Milind Soman was also on the judging panel. "My company, Face Entertainment is the co-producer, so I'm also playing judge at this Kingfisher 2011 Calendar Girl Hunt," he said.

The calendar, introduced in 2003, was the first of its kind in India, and promises twelve months of glamour and visual appeal. Padukone added that she had also been a part of the calendar and empathised with the aspiring calendar girls.

"When I was there in the calendar, there was no hunt for the girls. I think I was just lucky that I had already started modelling and these people (Kasbekar) noticed me and I was a part of the calendar. I think I am really fortunate that till today I have never really been part of a contest or never been part of a Miss India. So I think somewhere I feel a lot of, I mean, I feel nervous for these girls because I know what it feels like to sort of go through judges, and to be judged for the way you look and things like that. So, it's definitely tough on them," added Padukone.
