Vijay was unnecessarily roasted because earlier in the year he had taken names of Perry and Shikhar Dhawan when asked whom would he like to take on a dinner date.

Here is how Twitterverse roasted Vijay:

“Ellyse Perry. She is very beautiful. I want to have dinner with her,” he said.

In reply, Perry, in an Instagram chat with anchor Ridhima Pathan had said: “I hope he’s paying. That’s very kind of him. I’m flattered.”
