Actress Yuvika Chaudhary who has also been the winner of 'Nach Baliye 9' has been trending on social media for the wrong reason. The actress is embroiled in a new controversy after she used the word 'Bhangi' in one of her recent videos (vlog) that she posted on her Instagram without understanding the consequences. And now, the actress has posted an apology for hurting people's sentiments and also mentioned that she didn't know the meaning of it.
In her apology post, Yuvika Chaudhary writes, "Hi guys I didn't know the meaning of that word that I used in my last vlog. I didn't mean to hurt anyone and I can never do that to hurt someone. I apologise to each and everyone. I hope you all understand and love you all.” Also read: Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah's Munmun Dutta Says, 'I Don't Want To Look Like A Bhangi'; Twitterati Demands #ArrestMunmunDutta
