Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi today paid tributes to slain TDP MLA Paritala Ravi, whose character he essays in Ramgopal Varma's recently released movie, Rakta Charitra.
Oberoi paid homage at Paritala Ravi ghat at Venkatapuram village in the district.
He met Ravi's wife and TDP MLA Paritala Sunita and had lunch with her. He praised the Rayalaseema delicacies served for lunch.
The actor arrived in Anantapur district from Bangalore to a warm welcome from the supporters of Paritala Ravi.
Reading out a few lines in Telugu, Oberoi said he came to Anantapur district to offer homage to Ravi.
"I consider it my privilege to play the character of Ravi. I am at loss of words to explain my happiness over the response the character is getting. It is a very very special experience for me. I am thankful to all of you," he said.
Sunita said the actor expressed willingness to help in fulfilling the Ravi's wishes to build schools in the region.
"He (Vivek Oberoi) went to a temple which was built by Ravi for conducting mass marriages. He asked me if Ravi had any other wishes in the service of the people. When we told him that Ravi wanted to build schools, he said he is ready to offer his help for the purpose," she said.
