Vivek Oberoi stated in recent reports that while it is not derogatory to talk about past affairs; he also added that he apologized to Salman Khan. However, he asserted that he won’t apologize to Sonam Kapoor and further commented that she should stop overacting in films and overreacting on Twitter!
Vivek Oberoi speaks on Sonam Kapoor’s reaction to his tweet (on exit polls), “…Aap apni filmon mein thoda kam overact karein aur social media pe thoda kam overreact karein. I’ve been working in women empowerment for 10 yrs now. I don’t think this is hurting anyone’s sentiments” pic.twitter.com/pOWAwO29N6
