Widespread condemnation for Vivek Oberoi after he likens relationship with Aishwarya Rai to Exit Polls

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi on Monday faced social media wrath after he sensationally likened his past relationship with actress Aishwarya Rai to exit polls. Vivek shared a meme that had three photos of Aishwarya at different phases of her life.

In one of the pics of the collage, Aishwarya was seen with Salman, who she reportedly dated before being romantically linked with Vivek Oberoi. Right at the bottom of the collage, Aishwarya could be seen with her husband Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya. The meme termed Aishwarya’s relationship with Salman an ‘opinion poll’ and likened her association with Vivek as exit poll while her marriage with Abhishek was the proper result.

While sharing the meme, Vivek wrote, “Haha! creative! No politics here….just life.”

His decision to have a laugh at the expense of his former girlfriend did not go down well with social media users. Journalist Pallavi Ghosh wrote, “Shameful .. shows lack of class .. too much to expect an apology even.” “That’s quite in bad taste… Show some respect for women !,” wrote journalist Kamlesh Suttar. Badminton star Jwala Gutta wrote, “Extremely absurd of you to tweet this!! Disappointing!”

Here’s how other social media users reacted”

Vivek had famously slammed Salman after he reportedly started to date Aishwarya. However, their relationship was short-lived and she’s now happily married to Abhishek, with whom she has a daughter.

Vivek’s meme allegedly degrading a woman came hours after the exit polls predicted big wins for the BJP with many questioning the authenticity of exit polls.
