If you have wondered why in spite of his talent Vivek Oberoi made little headway with his career , his latest antic gives an indication of his foot-in-the-mouth approach to matters of life and career
In a Twitter entry on Monday which has disgusted the entire film industry Vivek has put three pictures ofAishwarya Rai Bachchan with three men in her life. The first marked ‘opinion poll’ shows the happily-married actress with Salman Khan. The second picture marked ‘exit poll’ shows Aishwarya with , ahem, Vivek Oberoi and the third picture marked ‘end result’ shows Aishwarya with her husband Abhishek Bcahchan and daughter Aaradhya.
For those who came in late Vivek was in a relationship with the lady for a couple of years after she broke up with Salman Khan.
The sheer tackiness of the political parallel vis-à-vis an entirely personal scenario has taken the film industry aback.Sonam Kapoor has been quick to respond describing the meme as “disgusting and classless.”
For those expecting a response from the Bachchans there is disappointment . They are all too classy to react to such cheap provocation.
A source close to the Bachchans told this writer, “It is obvious to all that he is doing this to get mileage for hisNarendra Modi bio-pic. His marketing team should be sacked, What the meme has done is to alienate even that minuscule section of the population which may have been curious about Vivek Oberoi playing the Prime Minister.What an undignified thing to do for someone who is playing the most important person in the country.”
In a bizarre twist to a bizarre misuse of the social media space, Vivek Oberoi’s PRO claims his twitter account was hacked , while Vivek, contradicting his publicist’s defence. defiantly proclaimed he had done no wrong and would not apologize.
Oberoi even took a potshot at Sonam Kapoor for criticizing the offensive meme.
