New Delhi: After actress Yuvika Chaudhary was booked by the Haryana Police on a complaint by a Dalit rights activist for allegedly using a casteist slur in a video, her husband Prince Narula recently came out in support for her during an interaction with shutterbugs.
In a video by ace photographer Viral Bhayani, Prince Narula expressed that people have made a mountain of a mole hill referring to the flak Yuvika received on Twitter for using a term derogatory to lower castes and that there are bigger issues in the country that people need to focus on.
He also mentioned that both, Yuvika and him don’t believe in caste. Prince said, “This is a small thing. People don’t talk about the big problems and take action. She didn’t know the word was offensive to that specific caste. We don’t believe in caste. I’m Punjabi and she’s Jat, so if we believed in caste, we wouldn’t have gotten married.”
Check out the video:
