Vivek Oberoi is now the father of two children -- son Vivaan (3) and daughter Ameyaa (1) - and the Great Grand Masti actor is enjoying playing the role of a father. He beams, “Fatherhood is an amazing experience. Fathers have to build bonds. When they are children, you are a superhero for them while mothers have to discipline kids and do the more difficult tasks. My son looks at me as a superhero and when my daughter looks at me, my heart melts. It’s a special bond.”

I Want.jpgUnlike many a contemporary actor, Vivek has steered clear of the social media. He has also never shared pictures of his kids online. He explains, “I want my kids to have a normal upbringing. I don’t want them to grow up like star kids. There are kids who travel in expensive big cars I wonder what difference it makes to a child if he travels in a car or not. I believe kids are special in general ... not because they are star kids. When I was a teenager, I asked my dad to give me a car but he asked me to travel by rickshaw, bus and train despite us being wealthy. I thank my dad because he made me value things in life.”
