Speaking to an entertainment website, actor Vivek Oberoi elaborated on several issues including Salman Khan. He even asked, "Do you believe in forgiveness?"
It's been more than a decade since the infamous press conference that was called by Vivek Oberoi. He had then accused Salman Khan of threatening him. Now, 16 years later, Vivek is still seeking forgiveness from the Dabangg actor.
During an interview, where Vivek was promoting his movie PM Narendra Modi, he spoke about work and life.
Bollywood Hungama asked him if Salman Khan was given a truth serum, what would he ask him. To which, Vivek replied, ''Do you truly believe in forgiveness?'' According to reports, Vivek on many occasions tried to speak to Salman and seek forgiveness, but to no avail. He also tried a couple of times to bridge the gap between the two, but Salman refused.
A few months ago, in an interview with Farah Khan, titled Tere Mere Beech Mein, Vivek had opened up on the entire controversy. Talking about calling the press conference, Vivek said he recognised that he had made a mistake as soon as he sat in front of the media people for the press conference. He realised that he should have handled it man-to-man and not this way. He also stressed on the fact that his close friend, Sohail Khan, had indeed asked him to wait so he could intervene and solve the matter. But Vivek acted instinctively and was outcaste overnight after the episode.
Not just that. In the same interview, Vivek took a dig at Aishwarya Rai, by calling her 'plastic'. "Sab hain yahan pe, plastic smile, plastic heart, sab," Vivek had said.
It was said that post-Aishwarya, Salman breakup, she started dating Vivek, but after the much-controversial press conference, the actress washed her hands off and called it quits.
Post that controversy, Vivek revealed that the press conference cost him a huge deal in Bollywood. He was an outcast in the industry overnight.
