The Punjab and Haryana High Court had earlier this month dismissed Yuvika's plea to stay a case filed against her for allegedly using a casteist slur in her blog to define her 'messy look'.

In his complaint, Kalsan alleged that the actor made some derogatory and objectionable remarks about the Scheduled Caste community in the video.
