Vivek Oberoi wants to bring up his children without any privilege

In an interview with B4U Entertainment, Vivek Oberoi opened up about his parenting style. The Saathiya actor shared how he wants to bring up his children without any privilege as he doesn't want them to feel entitled. Revealing the reason behind the same, Vivek shared that he has seen many star kids growing up entitled in the film industry and added:

“We don’t want to bring them (their kids) up with privilege. We don’t want to make the mistake of making our kids entitled. I have seen a lot of my friends while growing up in the industry, growing up entitled. That whole attitude, which I’m so sorry to say, but it’s so prevalent in my friends in Delhi."

Vivek Oberoi wants his kids to have their own identity

Speaking along the same lines, Vivek Oberoi opened up about how his kids are not aware that he is famous and instead have a sense of their own identity. The actor further mentioned that he wants his kids to know the value of who they are as individuals, their values, their friends, their relationships, and what they contribute to society. In his words:

"Your sense of identity should come from who you are, your values, your friends, your relationships, and what you contribute to society. It shouldn’t come to the fact that ‘you don’t know who my dad is.’ That shouldn’t be. That’s not the way I want to bring up our children.”
