Vivek furious with media over Salman’s issue


Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi on Friday rubbished all reports of Salman Khan snubbing him at the ongoing International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards, saying there were better things to talk about during the ceremony than just spread rumors out of the blue.

“Who told you this?” questioned Vivek when asked what he had to say about the whole episode.

On the inaugural day Thursday, Vivek and Dia Mirza were the host of “IIFA Foundation Fashion Extravaganza”

There were reports that Salman refused to be introduced by Vivek, the anchor of the night, and got Anil Kapoor to introduce him instead.

“Aap log kyun itni chhoti si baat ka itna bada issue bana rahein ho?” (Why are you making fuss about such a small incident) Vivek asked the reporters here.

“Even when I will be a 70-year-old man, you will ask me such questions that have nothing to do with me or you will create situations to write about it,” he added.
The actor said the media should concentrate on so many good initiatives and talks taking place at IIFA and not on such silly stuff.

The war between the two actors started when Vivek called a press conference in 2003 to announce that he had been receiving threatening calls from Salman over Aishwarya Rai. Vivek was dating Aishwarya that time.

Ever since that episode, Salman has not forgiven Vivek despite several public apologies by the latter.

    Well said Aniha (#7) – agree wholeheartedly with yr comments!!! As much as I like SK and admire him for his good deeds, its not good to remain unforgiving (and cold). We’ve read countless times that Vivek apologised and tried to make amends – can SK not accept even 1 apology? Doesn’t he know that “to forgive is divine”? I too think that he will be even richer in health, happiness and respect if he chooses this route.

    Well I am a huge fan of salman and I have heard a lot how salman has been misunderstood all the time. Salman if u are very genuine n beautiful human being from inside n out you should have the power of forgiveness. Common we are not in a high school anymore and by forgiving you will only gain more love n respect from other you won’t lose anything. So be a big boy as you claim to be…
