In 2016, the rumours of Laksh having differences with his Adhuri Kahaani Hamari co-star, Mahima Makwana, surfaced on the internet. There were also rumours about him being slapped by Mahima during a Holi bash. While clearing the rumours, Laksh said-
There were basic normal differences and nothing earth-shattering. Recently at the Holi shoot, regular things happened and were blown out of proportion. I came at the time for the media interaction. While applying colours, she got too excited and aggressive but I didn’t react as it was unintentional from her side. Then while giving another interview, after I applied colours on her face she vigorously rubbed her hands on my face due to which my sunglasses fell down. The colours went into my eyes. I got up and left as I was not in a state to give an interview . 20 minutes later I got back and completed the interview from where we left.” He further said, “The buzz of getting slapped by her is totally baseless and shocking. I wonder why people don’t even verify before writing stuff like that.”
