Vivek Oberoi travels in local train

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Actor Vivek Oberoi took a local train after 15 years to launch his affordable housing project Karrm Brahmaand here.

He says his dream to provide affordable quality homes to the common man has been fulfilled with the project, a township situated alongside a beach. The project offers over 5,000 homes for people with limited means.

"I'm glad the dream of Karrm Infrastructure to provide affordable quality homes to the common man has been fulfilled," Vivek said in a statement.

The actor travelled in the second class of the suburban train on Saturday to Kelve Road, along with media persons for the launch.

Vivek last travelled by a local train 15 years ago for the 2002 film "Saathiya".

"The idea is to improve the living conditions of the poor and underprivileged and to provide their families a respectable accommodation and a safer environment. Like Kelve Road, the Shahpur plan has also met with a huge response. From 2018, almost 14,000 families will start living a quality life," he added.
