Big Boss OTT winner Elvish Yadav has landed in hot soup, again, for slapping a man outside a Jaipur-based restaurant. In a video that went viral on social media, Yadav can be seen slapping a man, sitting at a desk, outside the restaurant. He, then, walks out of the scene but the man tries to argue back to which Elvish is seen going back to him in a fit of rage. The YouTuber was stopped by personnel around him and then he stormed out with his security team.
Elvish issued an audio clarification on the incident which was posted by his fan on X, saying, “Bhai, dekho, matter ye hai, na mujhe shauk hai ladai karne ka, na mere ko haath uthane ka shauk hai. Main apne kaam se kaam rakhta hoon. Main chalta hoon normal. Aur jo photo khichwane ko kehta hai, hum kichwate hai aaram se photo. Par, jo koi piche se comment pass karta hai, maa behen ki gaali deta hai, usko nahi bakshte (I am not interested in fighting nor slapping someone. I click photos with whoever asks me. However, if someone makes a personal remark, I don’t spare them).”

“There were police and commandos with us. It is not that we’ve done anything wrong. This was personal. He took a personal dig at me, and I went and slapped him. I don’t have any regrets. Aisa hi hoon main (I am like this only). He hurled abuses and I reacted in my style,” he added.
Elvish is a prominent figure among his fans in India. He has a trademark ‘Raosahab’ song and has become a cult figure across India. He rose to fame for his YouTube vlogs and gain even more popularity after winning Bigg Boss OTT 2. The Gurugram-native has 16.1 million fans on Instagram and 22 million on YouTube.
