Actress Yuvika Chaudhary had found herself in a mess when she recently drew netizens ire for posting a video featuring her husband Prince Narula on YouTube where she made a casteist remark. In the video, Yuvika can be seen filming Prince as he gets a haircut and uses the B word to describe his looks. This led to the hashtag 'Arrest Yuvika Chaudhary' trending on Twitter.
Within a few minutes, Yuvika posted an apology on Instagram saying that she didn't know the meaning about that word and didn't mean to hurt anyone. Prince, too, took to his Instagram stories to apologise to fans. Later, Yuvika was booked under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act after a complaint was filed against her by a Dalit rights activist.
Prince has finally broken his silence over the casteist slur controversy and said that Yuvika and him don't believe in caste adding that it is the reason why they are married. "Aaj kal log kuchh bhi baat ko bahot bada bana dete hain. Bade cases hain jispe humein baat karni chahiye, uspe koi baat nahi karta. Bahot saari cheezein hain jispe actually action lena chahiye, ye toh bhot chhoti cheez hai,” Prince told the paparazzi.
He further said that they have nothing to do with the caste system as they don't believe in it. "Hum caste mein believe nahi karte. Main Punjabi hu aur woh Jat hai. Agar aisa hota toh humari shaadi na hoti, hai na?” he said.

Yuvika had earlier issued a public apology on her Instagram. "I would like to apologise to each and every one of you for my honest mistake which happened unknowingly. I didn't know the meaning about that word which I used in my last Vlog. I didn't mean to hurt anyone and I can never do that to hurt someone. This was a mistake I hope you understand and forgive me," Yuvika apologised in a video shared on Instagram.
