Rekha's tweet came after Vivek Oberoi shared a viral meme that draws comparison between poll results and Aishwarya Rai's personal life.
The Krrish 3 actor brought up the fact that Aishwarya had once dated Salman Khan (calling it opinion poll), but later moved onto him (exit poll) and finally settled down with Abhishek Bachchan (the end result).
As soon as Vivek shared the tweet, he was torn apart on Twitter for unnecessarily degrading a woman. If some called him a "loser", others expressed anger over his insensitive tweet.
Even actress Sonam Kapoor, who is currently in Cannes, called Vivek's tweet "disgusting and claseless."
For the uninitiated, the Salman-Aishwarya-Vivek triangle had made headlines back in the early 2000s. It was on the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam that Aishwarya and Salman fell in love. But after dating for a while, their relationship ended on a sour note. Aishwarya, then, found love in Vivek Oberoi. Though Aishwarya never openly admitted to being in a relationship with Vivek, the Company actor openly did.
It was in 2003 that Aishwarya ended her relationship with Vivek Oberoi after his infamous press conference.
While Aishwarya married Abhishek Bachchan in 2007, Vivek tied the knot with Priyanka Alva in 2010.
