Throwback: The Infamous Salman Khan-Vivek Oberoi Controversy. Here’s What Happened

The Salman Khan-Vivek Oberoi clash, which took place back in 2003, is one of the most controversial episodes in the history of Bollywood.

The love story involving Vivek, Salman, and Aishwarya Rai took an unfortunate turn when Vivek accused Salman of abusing and harassing him.

Apparently, Vivek called in a press conference where he revealed that Salman had called him while drunk and accused him of having relations with various actresses.

During an appearance on the talk show Tere Mere Beech Mein, Vivek Oberoi revealed a number of details related to that incident.

While talking to host Farah Khan, Vivek revealed that as soon as he faced the media persons for the conference, he realised that he had made a mistake. He realised that he should have handled things differently and taken care of the matter ‘man-to-man.’ He also mentioned that Sohail Khan had asked him to wait so that he (Sohail) could solve the issue.

Vivek agreed that he acted impulsively and ended up being outcast from the industry.

Vivek said that Salman had abused him and accused him of having physical relations with several actresses. He had also said that Salman even passed lewd remarks about these actresses and their bodies. In Vivek’s words, the language Salman used was “badtameez, wahiyaat and gandi.”

Vivek went on to say that he took such a stern step (of calling a press conference) even though Arbaaz and Sohail were his good friends because Salman had threatened him. Apparently Salman had lost all control and had called Vivek about 41 times in just a few hours.

Farah asked him whether his efforts were appreciated by the person who was the reason why everything happened in the first place, he said “Nahi hua.” In fact, he was told that he acted immaturely and shouldn’t have done what he did.

Calling out the film industry for being ‘fake’, Vivek said that Bollywood had more plastic than Tupperware (the company). “Sab hain yahan pe, plastic smile, plastic heart, sab,” he added.

This Tere Mere Bech Me episode aired back in 2012. Take a look at this video clip by ABP News:
