Since then, the actor has worked in famous shows like Naagin 3, Bepanah Pyaar and Brahmarakshas 2. However, as they say, fate doesn’t always favour you!
Pearl has been linked with his various co-stars, and the most popular link-ups were with Karishma Tanna and Surbhi Jyoti, who were his co-stars in Naagin 3. However, the rumours were never accepted by any actor and they all had maintained a ‘good friends’ stance whenever asked.

However, now, the actor is dealing with some serious allegations.

Talking about Pearls’ link-ups, it was in 2019, during the shoot of Naagin 3 that Karishma Tanna was rumoured to be dating her co-star, Pearl V Puri.

However, both Karishma and Pearl had said that they are ‘good friends’. Later it was reported that the two have parted their ways. Pinkvilla had quoted the source, saying, “Karishma and Pearl have been each other's emotional anchor in the last two years but they amicable decided to part ways two months ago. Apparently, Karishma wanted to get married soon but Pearl wasn't ready for it and the duo decided to end it, if there was no immediate future to be seen.”
Pearl was also rumoured to be dating his Naagin 3 co-stars, Surbhi Jyoti, however, the actress had denied the reports. In an interview with Pinkvilla, when Surbhi Jyoti was asked if she is dating Pearl V Puri, she had retorted, "I and Pearl are not dating each other. We are good friends with each other. But I cannot blame you guys because I know if people start liking a Jodi on-screen they expect them to date each other in real too. But no we are not dating. He is a good friend."
In an interview with SpotboyE, Pearl V Puri had revealed that it was his ex-girlfriend, who had motivated and encouraged him to be an actor.

For her, I left home and came down to Mumbai and became an actor. And after I became an actor, she wanted me to leave acting.”
