“The actor was arrested on Saturday and ordered by the Haryana High Court to be released on interim bail if he is arrested, so he was released on bail after questioning.” Hansi SP Nitika Golot clarified. Meanwhile, there are reports that Yuvraj’s phone has been seized. Yuvraj was arrested on a complaint lodged by Rajat Kalsan, a Dalit activist and lawyer.
The tragic incident took place in April 2020. Yuvraj made the controversial remark during an Instagram live chat with Rohit Sharma. Cricketer Yusvendra Chahal was addressed with a word used to ridicule the lower castes. Though the actor said it jokingly, Yuvraj’s choice to make fun of Chahal provoked dalit organizations and a section of fans.

After this, there was an argument on social media that action should be taken against Yuvraj. Hindi hashtags urging Yuvraj to apologize were also widely circulated on social media. Despite being a cancer-stricken star, she has been criticized on social media for not being able to defeat such racial sentiments.
Chahal was an active presence on social media, making tic-tac-toe videos while the country was on lockdown due to the spread of Kovid. Chahal often made videos with the participation of members of the household. When the matter was discussed during a live chat with Rohit Sharma, an unintentional word from the mouth of the comedian led to a big controversy. Yuvraj had publicly expressed regret after the controversy among fans and dalit organizations. Yuvraj said he did not believe in caste distinctions.
