Amid the heavy outrage on social media, Yuvika's husband Prince Narula came out in her support and shared a series of videos on his Instagram stories. Prince also took the blame for not knowing the meaning of the word. Prince, in Hindi, said, "None of us knew the meaning of the word. When we received your messages, we looked it up online and we felt really bad. Yuvi immediately edited it after learning the meaning of the term. I hope you guys understand nothing was done intentionally. We didn't know the meaning of the word. Even I was there, if it is Yuvi's fault, it is my fault as well. We both didn't know the meaning of the word. We are really sorry if we hurt anyone, we love you guys." He further slammed haters for trolling Yuvika.
