Pratyusha Banerjee of Balika Vadhu fame was found hanging at her home as she had committed suicide, reportedly because of her personal issues. It was on April 1, 2016, when the 24-year-old actress had breathed her last. Many controversies have happened around her life post her demise and now, five years after later, producer, Vikas Gupta shared that he was in a relationship with her.
A few days back, in an interview with ETimes, Vikas Gupta had revealed that he was in a relationship with the late actress, Pratyusha Banerjee for a short span of time. He had also revealed that it was after their breakup that the late actress had gotten to know about him being bi-sexual. Now, Pratyusha’s BFF, Kamya Panjabi has slammed Vikas Gupta for dragging the late actress’ name.
In a conversation with ETimes, Kamya Panjabi questioned if Vikas Gupta needs fame as Pratyusha is not here to verify his claims. She said, “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.”
Kamya also mentioned that it isn’t morally correct to drag someone’s name, who is not even alive to defend herself. She added, “Uss aurat ki zindagi mein kya hua kya nahi hua uske baare mein ab kyu bolna. 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.”
Kamya also questioned Vikas Gupta for not disclosing the other girl’s name and choosing to take Pratyusha’s name only. She concluded, “He didn’t disclose the name of the girl, who he has claimed to have dated other than Pratyusha. Is it because she is alive to defend herself? Yeh saari cheezein nahi honi chahiye. We fought for her. Par aap toh ek ke baad ek panna khol rahe ho. It is a sensitive matter, so let’s be careful about what we speak.”
After Vikas Gupta’s revelation, in an interview with The Times Of India, Pratyusha’s ex-beau, Rahul Raj Singh had shared that Vikas is using someone’s name, who is not even alive to share her story. He had revealed that the late actress had told him about Vikas proposing to her, but she had declined it as she was aware of his sexuality. He had added that Vikas is only using her name for the limelight and had she been alive, she would have slapped him.
Rahul had also added that he hadn’t liked how Vikas had dragged his name and had found it defamatory. He had mentioned that he will take legal action against him if doesn’t stop and keep on dragging Pratyusha’s name to be in the limelight.
After Pratyusha’s death, her beau, Rahul Raj Singh was accused of the same and was dragged to the court.
