Controversy With Vikas Gupta

A rumour of Priyank being Vikas Gupta’s boyfriend was floating around but was never confirmed. In 2020, Vikas Gupta blamed Priyank and Bigg Boss co-contestant, Parth Samthaan for blackmailing and bullying him into coming out as bisexual. He said,

I am putting a stop to all this and filing a defamation suit against him and also want #ParthSamthaan and #Priyanksharma to give clarity on the same and issue a public apology by Tom otherwise the same will follow suit and will prove it as well that they are lying. I have been forced to take this step cause it’s affecting my work, personal life, and more.” [2]News18

Vikas Gupta alleged that he was in a relationship with Priyank for about one and a half years. Speaking of the trouble he faced due to Priyank, Vikas said,

He lived with me in this house for 1.5 years and then went on to Bigg Boss 11 with me. After BB, he worked with me on one of my shows. But after the completion of the first schedule, he started harassing me. He stopped coming for the shoot and said that his leg bone has expanded and he is in immense pain but still has to go for shoots. Priyank said that is he doesn’t get operated in a month’s time then he will have to amputate his leg. I’d fought with the team that give him some time because he is in pain. It’s been more than 1.5 years but he still hasn’t got operated for it…I’ve incurred major losses for that show and people thought that Priyank is such a sweet soul, he is working despite being in pain. I started getting blackmailed that I make a post that Priyank is a great actor or else I won’t come for shoots. Nobody has harassed me the way he has done during this show. [3]The Times of India

Vikas also alleged that Priyank has tortured him mentally. In response to Vikas Gupta’s allegations, Priyank said,

I don’t think so much about my past. I’m the person who believes in moving on. But all I want to say is that the person who claims that he is your friend never goes and publicly talks about your things. Matlab aap apne hai hi nahi agar aap duniya ko jaake bol rahe ho maine iske liye ye kia, woh kiya. Matlab kyun. Mai bahut achche se samaj gaya hu mere apne kaun hai aur aise log toh mere apne bilkul nahi hai. I never talk about this, but this is the first time I am revealing to you that person came and apologise to me for what he did.” [4]News18

Priyank stated that he was affected mentally by the entire situation and that his parents had been of great support. He also said that he was afraid of talking about it to his parents and shared how his mother laughed it off.
