Kamya Punjabi, a close friend of late Pratyusha Banerjee didn’t appreciate Vikas dragging her name and making claims now.
New Delhi: Popular television actress and former Bigg Boss contestant Kamya Punjabi blasted producer Vikas Gupta for his recent statement claiming that he dated late Balika Vadhu actress Pratyusha Banerjee.
In her interview with ETimes, Kamya Punjabi slammed Vikas Gupta. She 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 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 added.

For the unversed, Vikas Gupta opened about his bisexuality and told Etimes, “Pratyusha got to know about it after we broke up. We were together for a short span. The break-up reason would be that some people spoke bad about me to her. But I don’t want to get into the details as she is no more. I was very angry with her after the break-up. I avoided her when I saw her on the road once. She called me to ask that how could I do that. I liked Pratyusha. I wanted to do a big project with her. Alas!”.
He also disclosed that she got to know about his sexuality before they broke up.
In fact, Pratyusha Banerjee’s ex-boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh also dismissed these claims made by Vikas Gupta. He too stated that Vikas and Pratyusha never dated each other.
Vikas Gupta is a renowned TV producer, creative director, screenwriter and host. He is best known for his appearance in Bigg Boss 11 and hosting the show MTV Ace Of Space.
