Vikas Gupta has claimed that he had dated Pratyusha Banerjee for a short span of time. He said that Pratyusha found out about him being bisexual after they had parted ways. His revelation comes 5 years after Pratyusha’s death, and Kamya Punjabi disapproves of Vikas bringing up her personal life now. She slammed him for talking about the past, now when Pratyusha isn’t here to verify his claims. Pratyusha’s beau Rahul Raj Singh reacted to Vikas claims, and said that Pratyusha never dated Vikas.
While speaking to ETimes, Kamya said, “Why talk about past with her now?” She questioned whether this is just for publicity on his part, and whether he wants fame. “Pratyusha isn’t there to tell the world whether it's true or incorrect. She isn't there to verify these claims. Why is Vikas talking about his past with her now? Fame chahiye ki kya chahiye? I don't appreciate it at all. I didn't read or watch the interview. I don't want to know ki Pratyusha ke baare mein sach likha hai, jhooth likha hai ya tareef likhi hai."
She slammed him for dragging Pratyusha’s name, and for talking about her personal life. “She isn’t with us anymore. It was her personal life. Kisi ko haq nahi hai ki uske baare mein ab baat kare. Vikas koi doodh peeta bachcha nahi hai. Uske reasons honge, par jo apne beech mein nahi hai usko kyu drag karna,” she said.
Meanwhile, Pratyusha’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh told ETimes that she and Vikas never dated. Rahul said that Pratyusha had told him when they were doing the show Power Couple (2015) that Vikas had proposed to her, and that she had declined it as she was aware of his sexuality.
