Vivek, in every aspect, is a true hero. He has planted nearly 4 million saplings, this man involved in a massive tree planting campaign in deference to the wishes of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.
Uner the Green Kalam project, his dream is to plant 1 crore tree saplings. Despite losing his beloved son to Dengue 5 years ago, this man has never stopped entertaining fans on screen and inspiring many off the screen. #RIPVivek.
