MUMBAI: Actress Yuvika Chaudhary in a recent media conversation said that she and her family were mentally affected by the casteist slur she used in a video on social media and said she felt like she murdered someone.

Last month, Yuvika Chaudhary was booked under the SC/ST Act over the alleged use of slur and was later granted interim bail by the Punjab and Haryana High Court. A case was filed against her by the complainant Rajat Kalsan in Hansi after using the objectionable word in her vlog.

In an interview with PeepingMoon, when Yuvika was asked if the FIRs registered against her affected her mentally, she said 'it definitely did'.

She explained, "Whatever happens with you for the first time, you get affected by that. I am happy that my husband and my family are a big support. It took me time to be normal. I have done nothing wrong." 

"Mujhe aisa lag raha tha ki maine kisi ka khoon kar diya hai (I felt like I murdered someone). Being artists, we are not here to hurt anybody. I strongly feel strict action should be taken against people who drop in illogical or abusive comments on social media posts."

Speaking on having been called to the police station, she said, "It is like I paid the price for being a celebrity. There are people who abuse celebrities on social media but we cannot file a case against everyone. For me, humanity comes first so saying sorry repetitively doesn’t harm. I don’t believe in caste, I only believe in humanity."
