Elvish Yadav and Asim Riaz are currently at a tiff. This happened out of the blue and over what appears to be a misunderstanding. Both Asim and Elvish had major reactions in some situations, which could or could not be against one another. Wondering what the controversy between the Bigg Boss contestants is? We tell you everything that has happened so far…

The Elvish Yadav craze

Ever since Bigg Boss OTT 2 has ended, Elvish Yadav has been enjoying massive fandom. He created history by becoming the first wild card contestant to win Bigg Boss. The YouTuber was also felicitated by Haryana CM, Manohar Lal Khattar. Elvish has received love no matter where he goes.

Asim Riaz’s viral video from his concert

A video of Asim Riaz from his concert has been going viral. In this clip, Asim says that nobody could take his and Sidharth Shukla’s place. It is to be noted that Bigg Boss OTT 2 (the most recent version of Bigg Boss) saw a massive comparison between YouTubers Elvish Yadav and Abhishek Malhan. Back on Bigg Boss 13, Sidharth and Asim were on the stage with Salman Khan and this time, it was Elvish and Abhishek.

Where the misunderstanding (or not) began

Asim did not name anyone when he said that he and Sidharth cannot be replaced. However, the crowd started chanting Elvish’s name. Asim shared his opinion on Elvish and said that the YouTuber goes live and talks about his numbers and followers. After saying so, Asim showed the middle finger.

Elvish’s reaction

Elvish did react to the video when he went live on Instagram. The YouTuber did not name Asim either but said that regarding his recent controversy, the person involved is irrelevant and a clout chaser. Elvish said that he did not want to get into a controversy but Asim started it. He then said that he would have appreciated it if Asim said what he felt to Elvish’s face.

Fanclub wars

Asim and Elvish’s fanclubs are active since. While Asim’s fanclubs state that Asim did not name Elvish, the latter’s fanclubs say the same. Some fans have used images of both which has the internet divided in what exactly happened. Most netizens however support the statement that nobody can replace Asim and Sidharth on Bigg Boss.
