Yuvika Chaudhary, who is known for being a participant in shows like Bigg Boss, Splitsvilla and Nach Baliye, has been in the news since morning after she used a casteist remark in one of her videos. #ArrestYuvikaChaudhary has been trending on Twitter since then.
In the video shared by her, she is seen with her husband Prince Narula, at some point in the video she says, ‘main bhangi jaisi dikh rahi hoon’. This didn’t go well with some of the netizens and Yuvika has to face some massive trolling because of that. There was a flood of comments and memes soon after she shared the video.
In an interview with BT, Yuvika shared her take on the situation and said, “I used the word not knowing the exact meaning of it. I said it more in fun and soon this started trending on Twitter. I immediately apologized, but by the time I did that, it had already been picked up across social media. It was not intentional; I didn’t mean to hurt anyone. And one can see in the video too that I didn’t say it seriously.”
She further adds, “This is the first time I got trolled like this. I don’t even engage in things like these which may take a wrong turn. But there are times when one doesn’t realize and ends up saying something.”
Celebs getting trolled for what they say is not new. Recently Munmun Dutta from Tarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashmah was also trolled for using the same word.
Yuvika says that she likes to keep away from any kind of controversy.“I don’t know about others but I keep away from things, whether it’s reacting to a political situation or anything else for that matter. Main apni life mein mast rehti hoon and I do my work. I always support the good things happening in society. In the video too I was only saying it to myself and not to someone else. I realised people were hurt and hence I apologised. I love peace and I’m not the kind of person to ever trouble others,” she says.
