Elvish Yadav is famous for locking horns with celebrities. He loves passing his blunt comments on others. Recently, Khusha Kapila reacted to Elvish Yadav's comment by calling her sasti Kareena Kapoor. In an interaction with The Lallantop, Kusha Kapila called it wrong for Elvish to compare her with Kareena, as he didn't get the Jab We Met actress' consent before it. Kusha can be quoted as saying:
"What does this mean? Kareena Kapoor has not consented for this, first ask her, she is the begum. How can you use her name anywhere? It’s wrong. Aapne meme nahi dekha, ‘Ye Elvish bhai ke aage koi nahi bol sakta.'"
