Om Shanti Om fame actress Yuvika Choudhary today faced backlash from the Twitter community after her Vlog showed her using a casteist slur. The video shows Yuvika shooting a video on her cellphone. She seems to be inside a salon and is accompanied by her husband Prince Narula.
The actress is shooting the clip as her husband is getting a haircut. The former Bigg Boss contestant is complaining that she never gets to show herself while she does all the hard work of filming the video. Yuvika Chaudhary says, “Yeh Dekhiye! Hamesha jab mein blog banati hoon, main kyun hamesh xxxx ki tarah khadi ho jati hoon aake? Muzhe itna time milata hi nahi hain ki mein apne aap ko sahi dhang se dikha saku. I’m looking so bad and he is not giving me time to make a blog.”
In the same video, she refers to a particular community indicating that she does not want to look like them. It has certainly not gone well with the Twitter users who immediately started trending #ArrestYuvikaChoudhary the instance the video went viral.
From calling her a casteist termite to criticizing her as a narrow-minded person, social media users have slammed Yuvika badly on Twitter.

In the second week of this month, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Munmun Dutta who plays the role of Babita in the famous comedy serial was also booked for using casteist slur. She immediately issued an apology but a case was registered against her in Indore and Haryana.
In her apology, Munmun said, “Because of my language barrier, I was genuinely misinformed about the meaning of the word. Once I was made aware of its meaning I immediately took the part down. I have the utmost respect for every single person from every caste, creed, or gender and acknowledge their immense contribution to our society or nation.”
Yuvika Choudhary is yet to respond to this uproar against her on Twitter but is expected to soon come out with a statement.
