Digital is the new king and a great way to communicate. But there are two sides to a coin and the same is the case with the digital world. WhatsApp, one of the most widely used messaging applications can prove to be both a boon and a bane. Have you ever been a victim of WhatsApp miscommunication? Case in point - you're gossiping about A to B and accidentally end up texting A the said conversation, only to later realise the mistake. That seems to be exactly what happened to Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi. He may have been having a bad day, given that his name cropped up in a Cobrapost sting, because he accidentally shared his damage control plan with us.
We reached out to the actor for his reaction and to get his side of the story. But looks like the actor, who is currently busy shooting for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s biopic, was already in damage control mode. We dropped Vivek a message on WhatsApp and he replied with what seems to be messages that were meant for his team. We responded to Vivek informing him that he was sending us messages meant for his team, to which he didn’t respond.
In a shocking video released by the independent media outlet which ran the sting operation, over 30 celebrities from the Bollywood and television world were exposed after they agreed to write posts supporting political parties in return for money. Vivek’s name too cropped up as he was seen in conversation with a person discussing money and politics.
We are yet to get a relevant response from Vivek or his team on the matter.Speaking of the Cobrapost expose, Abhijit Bhattacharya, Kailash Kher, Tisca Chopra, Jackie Shroff, Shakti Kapoor, Koena Mitra, Sonu Sood, Rohit Roy, Minissha Lamba, Evelyn Sharma, Rajpal Yadav, Shreyas Talpade, and TV actors Deepshikha Nagpal, Krushna Abhishek, Aman Varma are all part of the video that has been published by the outlet.
