The National Commission for Women (NCW) has sent a notice to Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi for posting a meme about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s personal life and comparing it with the Lok Sabha elections exit polls. 

Vivek Oberoi posted a meme featuring her with husband Abhishek, daughter Aaradhya and Salman Khan.

“Haha! creative! No politics here… just life,” Vivek captioned the photo. 

NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma called Vivek Oberoi’s tweet “distasteful” and “disgusting”, but also said that a legal notice will be served to the actor.

“This tweet is absolutely Disgusting, distasteful, and degrading a women. @NCWIndia will be serving notice to @vivekoberoi,” Rekha tweeted.

Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal slammed the post for being “distasteful” and “crass”.

“It is hardly hilarious. It’s crass, disgusting and reveals the sick mentality of its ‘creator’@vivekoberoi. Evident that the man lacks everything – political as well as life skills,” Swati Maliwal, said.
