Now, the actor has issued an apology, tweeting, “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 underprivileged girls, I cant even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever.”

In another post, he wrote, “Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies.”

Yesterday, the actor posted a meme on his Twitter, which featured photos of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan with actor Salman Khan, with Vivek Oberoi and with her husband Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya. The pictures were captioned “opinion polls”, “exit polls” and “results”.

Earlier, when asked about the controversy over the tweet, Oberoi told reporters, “I have no problem in apologising, but tell me what wrong have I done? If I have done something wrong I will apologise, I don’t think I have done anything wrong.”
