Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi is shown here dancing with former LTTE cadres (and their teachers). These former fighters and members of the LTTE have been receiving dance, drama and vocational training at a rehabilitation center near Vavuniya. Vivek Oberoi visited Sri Lanka during the Indian International Film Awards in early June and has taken an interest in social projects in Sri Lanka, including supporting a school.
The cadres at the camp treated the chief guests – including Vivek Oberoi, MP Namal Rajapaksa, Ministers Bathiudeen and Devananda and Northern Province Governor Chandrasiri – to a dance performance. They have been receiving dance instruction from the Abhina Academy Of Performing Arts which assisted them in choreographing the days event. At the end, the boys troupe threw plastic flowers down and left the stage.
Vivek Oberoi got up from the chief guests pavilion, picked up a flower and handed it back to a dancer. Then, after some encouragement, he took the stage and showed them some of the latest moves.
