However, Vivek’s tweet did not go down well with a section of social media users.
One user wrote: “Mr. Oberoi, be mature otherwise people will always take you lightly.”
Another netizen requested him to show respect to Team India: “At least they fought for nation and reached the semi finals not like you who’s just getting knocked out with every flop movie. Show some respect to team india.”
Yet another Twitter user wrote: “And the same thing happened to you while chasing your career aspirations. Let me know if any of ur films crossed Rs 50 crore profit mark. I would love to watch.”

The Masti actor received major backlash on social media during exit polls in May this year, when he shared a distasteful meme on actors Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Salman Khan.
Meanwhile, on the work front, the actor was recently seen essaying the role of PM Narendra Modi in the leader’s biopic. The film was directed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sandeep Singh. While it first went down into controversies and could not be released due to the Election Commission’s instruction, the film opened to critical reviews later. After hitting the theatres on May 25, PM Narendra Modi faced criticism for being a propaganda film and Vivek’s performance.
