Vivek Oberoi coaxes pan masala brand to donate to cancer organisation
Vivek Oberoi has apparently coaxed a pan masala brand to do charity for a cancer organisation
Vivek Oberoi has apparently agreed to be the face of a pan masala brand, but on one condition. The actor has asked the company to add another clause in his deal. He has asked them to donate a part of their profit to an NGO that he supports. The said NGO works for cancer victims.
A source says, "Vivek was in talks with the officials and after a few rounds of discussion, he said yes to endorsing the product. In fact, he will soon be shooting for a commercial, but wants them to donate money to the NGO."
Incidentally, the brand has also agreed to allot approximately Rs 25 lakh to the NGO apart from giving him his regular fees. Another source says, "Vivek has also requested them to put a precautionary warning on their product that this product is tobacco-free and consuming tobacco is not good for health."
So the whole idea about adding the clause was to spread awareness and also get attached to the brand.
Vivek remained unavailable for comment.
