A few days ago, Yuvika Chaudhary landed in trouble after she was heard using a casteist slur in a vlog. The video has gone viral since then, and the word used by Yuvika in the video, is derogatory to a community of the society. She earned the wrath of Netizens after the video went viral, and she later issued an apology, claiming that she was unaware and ignorant of the meaning of the word. She was also booked under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act after a complaint was filed by a Dalit rights activist. Now, Prince Narula has reacted to the controversy, and said that it was blown out of proportion.
Prince Narula was spotted by the paparazzi today, and when asked about his wife Yuvika Chaudhary’s controversy over the word, Prince said that there are so many issues in the world that people should be talking about, but no one talks about that. “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,” he said. Prince further added that there are many bigger things against which action must be taken. “ Bahot saari cheezein hain jispe actually action lena chahiye, ye toh bhot chhoti cheez hai,” he said.
Prince further mentioned that Yuvika was not even aware that the word had any relation with a caste. He said that they don’t believe in castes, and that if they did, they wouldn’t have been able to get married to each other. “Hum caste mein believe nahi karte. Main Punjabi hu aur woh Jat hai. Agar aisa hota toh humari shaadi na hoti, hai na?” asked Prince. Take a look at the video below:
Meanwhile, in the apology issued by Yuvika, she had said, “I apologise to you all with folded hands. I used the word unknowingly and I didn’t know the meaning. Please forgive a mistake that happened unknowingly.” ALSO READ: Yuvika Chaudhary And Prince Narula Share Video Apology After Being Trolled For Using The Word ‘Bhangi’; ‘Anjaane Mein Hui Galti Ko Aap Log Maaf Kare’
