National Commission for Women sends notice to Vivek Oberoi over Aishwarya tweet
Vivek Oberoi will be seen next in ‘PM Narendra Modi’ which has been embroiled in controversies for a few months. It seems the actor has now landed himself in another controversy after he tweeted a meme of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan and himself. He’s now been sent a notice by the National Commission for Women (NCW).
The NCW asked for an explanation from the actor, according to Hindustan Times, on the “extremely offensive and unethical post that shows disrespect towards the dignity and respect of women in general”.
NCW chairperson, Rekha Sharma, stated, “We would like him to apologise on social media and personally to the person concerned. If he doesn’t, we will see what legal action can be taken. We will talk to Twitter to remove the tweet”.
Oberoi reacted to the backlash he’s faced after the tweet. As reported by ANI, he said, “People are asking me to apologise. I have no problem in apologising, but tell me what wrong have I done. If I have done something wrong, I will apologise. I don’t think I have done anything wrong. What’s wrong in it? Somebody tweeted a meme and I laughed at it”.
