Author Chetan Bhagat is recently making headlines when he remarked on Uorfi Javed and expressed worry about the youth being sidetracked by it. His comment, nevertheless, did not go over well with the internet community, who reacted negatively.

Uorfi Javed is best renowned for the eccentric dress choices she usually wears to different events. On the other side, Chetan Bhagat is a well-known Indian author whose books, such as 3 Idiots, Hello, Half Girlfriend, 2 States, etc., have frequently been turned into Bollywood films.

During a literature event, the author addressed the crowd and claimed that young people, particularly guys who spent hours watching Instagram stories, had found the phone to be a terrific diversion. He continued by expressing his thoughts on Uorfi Javed's photos and enquiring as to what everyone would do with them or her attire. Even more, he clarified the situation for the other kids who were seeing Uorfi's photos while hiding in blankets by using the analogy of soldiers guarding our country at the Kargil.

Chetan Bhagat said, “Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits?" The author further added, "On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.”

Uorfi Javed took to her Instagram stories to respond to Chetan Bhagat's remark and voice her ire at the author for attributing men's behaviour on her clothing. She wrote, “Men like him will always blame the women than accepting their own shortcomings. Stop promoting r*pe culture you sickos out there. Blaming women’s clothes for the behaviour of men is so 80s Mr Chetan Bhagat.” 

Additionally, she even shared screenshots of the author's allegedly leaked chats with the media amid the MeToo movement.

Numerous internet users attacked the author after Uorfi Javed responded to Chetan Bhagat's remark, and he then tweeted again to give his side of the story.

He wrote, “Have never spoken to/chatted with/met/ known someone where it’s being spread that I have done so. It’s fake. a lie. also a Non issue. Haven’t criticised anyone. And I also think there’s nothing wrong in telling people to stop wasting time on Instagram and focus on fitness and career.”
