Talking to news agency ANI about legal notices issued by NCW & MSCW, Vivek said, “People are saying apologise, I have no problem in apologising, but tell me what wrong have I done? If I have done something wrong I will apologise. I don’t think I have done anything wrong. What’s wrong in it? Somebody tweeted a meme and I laughed at it.”
“I don’t know why people are making a huge issue out of it. Someone had sent me a meme which made fun of me. I laughed on it&I appreciated the person for his creativity. If someone mocks at you, you should not take it seriously,” he added.
“Those in the meme don’t have a problem, but everyone else has. Kaam karne jaate hain nahi non-issues ke upar netagiri shuru kar dete hain. Didi put someone behind bars for a meme, people are I be put behind bars too. They couldn’t stop my film, now they are trying this,” he further told the news agency.
Defending his tweet, he further told the news agency, “I’m waiting for National Commission for Women, State Commission for Women. I’d like to meet them, I’ll also like to explain myself because I don’t think I have done anything wrong.”
