Vivek Oberoi Confessed Seeing Aishwarya Rai While She Denied Being In A Relationship With Him

Vivek Oberoi made headlines in the early 2000s for his personal life. While he was hailed as the hottest newcomer in the industry back in those days, his relationship with Aishwarya Rai had an adverse effect on his career. It all started after Aishwarya Rai broke up with Salman Khan and started dating Vivek Oberoi. However, Salman wasn't happy about it, but things took an ugly turn when Vivek jumped in and did a press conference against bhai and called him out for abusing and threatening him and his then-ladylove, Aishwarya.

Recently, we stumbled upon an old clip of Vivek Oberoi from Koffee With Karan season 1 (2005). In the video, the host of the show, Karan asked Vivek if he was seeing Aishwarya. To this, the actor happily gave out a big 'yes'. Karan cross-questioned Vivek and asked why Aishwarya never admitted it. This left Vivek visibly upset, and he added that maybe he never asked her. Vivek was quoted as saying:

"I don't think you asked her on the show. Did you ask her on the show?"

Further in the video, Karan asked Vivek about his famous press conference against Salman Khan and how the media bashed him. To this, Vivek said that it had good repercussions on his life. He added that he faced a lot of media bashing, and the entire industry turned against him. Vivek was quoted as saying:

"I didn't had anything against Salman Khan. In fact, I liked the guy. I thought he was quite interesting when I met him before. But yeah in terms of the way he behaved and within the framework of my personal life at that time, trying to protect the lady in my life. I did what I thought was right."

"Wonderful, wonderful friend and truly been there."
