Actor Vivek Oberoi's 'meme' tweet about the Exit Polls featuring Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, Salman Khan and himself has gotten the actor into trouble. The National Commission For Women (NCW) has served a legal notice to the actor. 

The meme posted by Vivek draws a parallel between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's affairs and the Exit Polls. Earlier in the day, NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma had called the actor's tweet distasteful and disgusting and had mentioned that a legal notice would be served to the actor.

The meme shows three different phases of Aishwarya's life and compares it to the ongoing polls. It starts with Aishwarya's first affair with Salman Khan comparing it to opinion poll, then it shows her relationship with Vivek drawing a parallel to the exit polls, finally it shows her with her husband Abhishek and daughter Aradhya - which the meme calls "the end result."

Tweeple trolled Vivek on his carelessness and callous approach. Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor called the tweet "disgusting and classless", while sportsperson Jwala Gutta tweeted, "Extemenly absurd of you to tweet this!! Disappointing."
