Sharing a meme on Lok Sabha exit polls has landed Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi into some serious trouble. The NCW is contemplating sending a legal notice to him even as trolls are bashing him on social media.
The National Commission for Women (NCW) has termed Vivek Oberoi’s tweet “distasteful” and “disgusting”.
The Saathiya actor has posted a meme about Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s age-old affair back in 2002, and compared it to the ongoing elections. He took a sly dig, stating that once Aishwarya dated Salman Khan (referring to it as opinion poll), but later moved on to Vivek Oberoi (exit poll). However, she ended up marrying Abhishek Bachchan (the end result).
Vivek Obeori shared the meme on Twitter saying, “Haha! creative! No politics here….just life”

Ever since Vivek Oberoi posted the tweet, he is being savaged on social media. Actress Sonam Kapoor and sportsperson Jwala Gutta reacted to his tweet with disdain.
“Disgusting and classless,” Sonam wrote, while Jwala said “Extremely absurd of you to tweet this!! Disappointing!”

Some other asked the actor to grow up and move on.
The curious case of #VivekOberoi
Since their break-up, Salman has never uttered word about Aishwarya Rai.
Vivek Oberoi, on the other hand, called her a plastic doll,
repeatedly blamed her for manipulating him & destroying his career.
And now this crass meme! Move on, Vivek. pic.twitter.com/S8CtewOmDL

Vivek Oberoi had campaigned for the BJP earlier this month. The biopic of Narendra Modi, in which he stars, releases this Friday, a day after the Lok Sabha results are out. The movie “PM Narendra Modi” was forcibly pushed back from its original release date before polling began last month.
