Shillong: Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi, who is on a visit to the hill state, found interacting with the inmates of an orphanage overwhelming.

"Felt the true Christmas spirit in their smiles as the kids ate their cakes and sang Christmas carols! The joy of sharing, giving and caring!...," Vivek, who also visited an old age home here, said.

Praising the Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, who was with him during the trip, Vivek told the youth at a summit, "He is so progressive. He also sings and dance and if ever I become a politician, I want to be just like him."

Sangma sung Eddie Rabbit`s evergreen favourite `Room at the top of the stairs` and Jingle bells as Vivek swayed to the beat.

The actor was on a two-day visit here to attend the summit organised by the India Today group.

The `Saathiya` and `Shootout at Lokhandwala` actor, who called Shillong a cool place, said, "I am having a great time here."

Vivek chose a 105-year old woman as his dance partner at an orphanage party.
