Actors Vivek Oberoi and Aishwarya Rai were rumoured to be in a relationship with one another. In 2019, the actor had received a lot of social media flak for posting a distasteful meme about the actress.
It was in May 2019 when everyone was waiting for the annual general elections result, a meme shared by Vivek Oberoi was brutally slammed by celebs and netizens alike. For the unaware, Vivek was allegedly in a relationship with Aishwarya Rai and the reason behind his strained relationship with Salman Khan isn’t unknown to anyone. However, his 2019 meme involved Aishwarya herself, Salman, Vivek and her family, husband Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya Bachchan.

The meme was divided into three sections – the first part called “Opinion Poll” had Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Salman Khan’s photo on it. The second part of the meme was called, “Exit Poll”, that had Vivek Oberoi and Aishwarya’s photo on it. The third part named “Result” had Aishwarya, Abhishek Bachchan and Aaradhya on it. The actor had then tweeted the same with the caption that could be read, “Haha! creative! No politics here… just life.”
No sooner had he shared the tweet, netizens and celebs alike brutally trolled Vivek Oberoi. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja stood up for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and called the actor’s tweet “Disgusting and classless”.
Vivek Oberoi had deleted the tweet after getting brutally slammed on social media.
Later, in an interview with ANI, Vivek Oberoi had shared that he is ready to apologise but wasn’t sure of what he had done wrong. Also speaking about Sonam Kapoor’s comment, he had shared, “Aap apni filmon mein thoda kam overact karein aur social media pe thoda kam overreact karein. I’ve been working in women empowerment for 10 years now. I don’t think this is hurting anyone’s sentiments.” Take a look at Vivek’s opinion on the trolls pertaining to the Aishwarya Rai meme:
