As the entire nation is waiting with bated breath for Lok Sabha Elections 2019 results, actor Vivek Oberoi decided to share a meme on exit polls involving Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan, Vivek, Abhishek Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan. While tweeting it, he would have never imagined that it would land him in trouble. As soon as he shared the meme, netizens started condemning him for taking a jibe at Aishwarya’s past relationships. Bollywood celebs like Sonam Kapoor, Madhur Bhandarkar and many more slammed Vivek for stooping low.

Sonam lashed out at the actor calling him ‘disgusting and classless’. However, he gave her back by saying, “Aap apne filmon mein thoda kam overact karein aur social media pe thoda kam overreact karein.”

Urmila Matondkar and Madhur Bhandarkar also criticized Vivek for sharing the meme. 

The matter became murkier when the National Commission for Women issued a notice to him for his remarks. However, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel came to Vivek’s rescue and reacted to it by asking the reason NCW didn’t support the actress and is now focusing on Vivek’s meme. 

Many celebs have come out and spoken on the matter but Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan have maintained a dignified silence on it. The actress is currently attending the Cannes Film Festival. In fact, people on social media also requested Abhishek to stand up for his wife. However, it is yet to be seen if Junior Bachchan talks about it in the coming days. Interestingly, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted something just an hour before Vivek’s controversial meme which was a piece of advice for netizens on how to use social media.

If Vivek had read Big B’s words, he might have saved himself from this controversy. Meanwhile, he has not only deleted the tweet but also issued an apology. Check out his tweets below: 

Here in Bollywood, people don’t forget things easily especially if it comes from lesser mortals who have been out of the limelight for some time. We have to wait a little longer to see if Vivek faces any trouble because of this controversy. He will next be seen in PM Narendra Modi biopic. It is all set to hit the screens on May 24.
