The National Commission for Women on Monday issued a notice to actor Vivek Oberoi and asked him to explain a tweet that linked the exit polls to actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's private life. Now, here's what Vivek Oberoi has to say on the meme shared by him. I don't think I have done anything wrong. Mr Oberoi suggested that the protests against his tweet were actually targeted at his new film, a biopic of Narendra Modi in which Mr Oberoi plays the lead and which will release this Friday, a day after Lok Sabha election results. The meme compared Aishwraya's relationships to poll results. "No politics here... just life". While filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar said, "Dear @vivekoberoi, never expected such tweet from u". I have no problem in apologising, but tell me what wrong have I done. "Somebody tweeted a meme and I laughed at it".

Urmila Matondkar shared on Twitter, "Very disgraceful and in extreme bad taste of #VivekOberoi to put up such a disrespectful post".

Another user wrote, "You tweeting this pic is a sign that Aishwarya made a sensible decision".
