Popular YouTuber Elvish Yadav was recently arrested in the snake venom case. The Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner, who is known to have a short temper, has been involved in public showdowns where he has been accused of assault and attempted murder. As his personal and professional life unravels in the public eye, we take a look at 5 infamous controversies surrounding the popular YouTuber.

Snake venom case

Elvish recently got arrested and was sent to 14-day judicial custody in a snake venom case. The Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner was booked under the Wildlife Act and his arrest comes after BJP MP Maneka Gandhi-led NGO People for Animals conducted a sting operation revealing a snake venom smuggling racket. Elvish is alleged to have been involved in this racket. The YouTuber was arrested by the UP Police after a sample confirmed the presence of snake venom of the Cobra Krait species in his parties earlier this month.

Rift with Maxtern

Earlier this month, YouTuber Maxtern accused Elvish Yadav of assault and an attempt to murder after a video of them being involved in a public showdown went viral. Maxtern had filed an FIR against Elvish, although he withdrew it later on after announcing on social media that the duo had made peace with each other.

Public showdown

Elvish was also accused of misbehaving with a journalist when he grabbed a mic after being asked about his Vaishno Devi temple visit in December 2023. However, Elvish’s team has claimed that the person pretending to be a journalist misbehaved first after he was denied a picture.

Fallout with Abhishek Malhan

Elvish made his OTT debut with Bogg Boss OTT Season 2, along with fellow YouTuber Abhishek Malhan. This resulted in a friendship that was loved by many. But the bond did not last long, as after the completion of the show, Elvish accused Abhishek of using negative PR stunts against him, while Abhishek accused Elvish of using fake PR.

Breaking friendships

Elvish was rumoured to be dating former Bigg Boss contestant Manisha Rani, with whom he shared a close bond during Bigg Boss OTT 2. The YouTuber was also seen picking up Manisha from the sets of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 11, further adding fuel to the rumours. According to recent updates, both Elvish and Manisha have unfollowed each other on Instagram.
