Vivek Oberoi is in news as he has courted controversy by sharing a meme on Twitter that involved his alleged ex-girlfriend and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The meme, divided into three panels, featured Aishwarya with Salman, Vivek and her husband Abhishek Bachchan & daughter Aaradhya. The actor recived flakes for disrespectful towards the former Miss World.
The actor who was initially reluctant to apologise for the post, deleted it early Tuesday morning alongside issuing an apology on Twitter. “Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies, tweet deleted,” the actor wrote on the micro-blogging platform.
the director of Vivek’s soon-to-release PM Narendra Modi biopic Omung Kumar has reacted to the now-infamous meme.
In an exclusive conversation with ZoomTV.com, Omung said, “Delete kar diya, apologise kar diya, by mistake ho gaya. It was a mazaak, it happened in a wrong way. Sometimes you think it’s funny and you should share it par kisi ko funny lagta hai toh kisi ko nahi lagta hai. People objected to it and he deleted it...sorry bol raha hai. There is nothing big about it...ho gaya, ho gaya. People laughed at the meme when they saw it...agar koi [object] kar deta hai toh wrong lagta hai.”
The director said, “But did he find the meme funny like Vivek did? “I did not find it funny. There is nothing funny about it. But wrong judgement ho gaya, wo ho jata hai. Isse zyada disastrous things hue hain. This is nothing much,”
