Vivek Oberoi right before the release of his film took some very distasteful measures in attempt to gain some press and the most recent was an alleged unintentional meme on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her three relationships. It didn’t just lead the actor being called out it, but also caught National Commission for Women (NCW)’s attention. The actor was sent a notice demanding an explanation over his tweet and seeking an apology for his actions.
Many took to the social media shaming Vivek for the act, but it didn’t include hubby Abhishek Bachchan’s name. Apparently the actor did lose his calm as any sane person would, but Aishwarya who was at 72nd Cannes Film Festival at the time managed to calm him down asking him not to react on the matter.
The actress suspected this was in poor light to gather cheap publicity for his controversial PM Narendra Modi biopic.
“Abhishek for once was ready to fire back all cylinders ‘go’. It takes a lot to get him angry. But this disparaging tweet really got his goat. She is in Cannes and when she heard about it she was bemused and baffled. She had to calm Abhishek down. She cannily saw through Oberoi’s ruse to get publicity for his pitiable Narendra Modi biopic. She told Abhishek not to play into his hands,” a source close to the Bachchan family was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.
Vivek later on did delete the tweet and apologised for his actions on Twitter.
