On Tuesday, Vivek tweeted that something that may appear to be amusing at first glance to one may not be so to others. Oberoi also added that he had spent the last 10 years "empowering more than 2,000 underprivileged girls".
The National Commission for Women sent a notice to Oberoi, asking him to give an explanation for sharing the "insulting" and "misogynist" tweet.

Vivek Oberoi has come under fire for a post made in bad taste.
Vivek, who reportedly dated Aishwarya in the early 2000s, shared the "creative" meme with due credit, he wrote that there's "no politics here, just life". "I would meet the Women's Commission and if they explain to me what is wrong in it, I would apologise", Vivek told the media here on Monday.
"People told me that we are making this film to showcase Modiji as a hero. I think these things shouldn't be taken seriously". When I don't tweet like before, how will I see all these memes? I laughed at it and I appreciated the person for his creativity.
"Those in the meme don't have a problem, but everyone else has".
