Oberoi wrote, “Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others. I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 unprivileged girls, I can’t even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever.”

Finally, he concluded the meme with actor Abhisekh Bachchan and Aradhya as “Result”. He had posted this collage of pictures captioning it as “Haha creative! No politics here…. just life”

The Bollywood personalities like Sonam Kapoor, Urmila Matondkar and others lambasted Vivek Oberoi of being “disgraceful and distasteful”. Oberoi has been served notice by the National Commission for Women (NCW).

Later, Oberoi deleted the mischievous tweet from his twitter account.
