"You castiest 'Modern Indians'...we will never forgive, we will never forget. Now You guys have only one place, that is jail. #ArrestYuvikaChoudhary."
After such comments, Yuvika Chaudhary issued an apology on Twitter and said that she didn't know the exact meaning of the word. The actress tweeted, "Hi guys I didn't kw the meaning about that word wt 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 n every one I hope you understand love you all." (sic)
For the unversed, earlier Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actress Munmun Dutta had been booked for using the same term on social media. She was booked under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
We think actors should be a little more careful before using certain sensitive words.
