An upcoming episode of MTV Big F, known for tackling issues considered taboo in the country, will dwell upon slut-shaming.

It will explore the story of Lavanya, played by Nia Sharma, a nerdy young college-going student, who joins a college and dreams of reserving the spot of the hottest girl in the hearts of boys.

Despite trying very hard to make her presence felt in the college, especially in front of the most popular boy Zeeshan, played by Yuvraj Thakur, and class topper Karan, played by Nikhil Khuarana, she fails miserably and ends up falling back upon her sister Meera's advice on how to become cool and stylish at college. 

After undergoing a makeover in order to ensure that she gets invited to the fresher's party alongside the boys in her college, she gets asked out by Zeeshan and Karan. A now confused and excited Lavanya employs a simple advice given to her by Meera, which is to kiss both of them and decide who she wants to go out with.

When the day arrives, Zeeshan and Karan at first fight for her but soon blame her for being a slut and manipulating them. 

Talking about the same, Yuvraj said: "It's another display of dysfunctional society. It's the reflection of crippling fear that resides in the deepest and darkest corners of the society. The people who point fingers at others or raise questions about someone's character are the ones living with a parasitic mental disorder. They perceive everything through their distorted perception." 

The actor says he feels bad for the people who live with such thought processes.

"I can't even begin to imagine their sufferings, because all of this noise and accusations are nothing but their own fears and confusion getting spilled out," he added.
