Vivek Oberoi, at the event, said, "This is a fantastic initiative. I'm very happy to see so many films sensitizing the public towards the differently abled people in our society and we are talking about inclusiveness. I request the Honorable Ministers to consider changing the term Disability to differently abled special people".

Vivek also narrated a personal story and said, “My niece Pashmina is a special child and as a family we went through a lot of struggles to admit her in a school. We wanted to give her a normal childhood and upbringing. She's ten years now and she is a star her school today. She competes with all the normal children athletics and beats them all. She's the no. 1 gold medalist in her school and her friends and teachers help her in her studies. It's beautiful to see her grow up in that environment and we need to create the same environment in our country for the specially abled people.”

Vivek Oberoi had very recently come out for a social cause – that of raising funds for cancer patients. He will be seen in the Bollywood movie GREAT GRAND MASTI (a sequel to MASTI and GRAND MASTI), the shooting of which wrapped up a few days back.
