Vikas gupta in an recent interview revealed that he dated late actress Pratyusha Banerjee.
In an interview with a leading portal, the Bigg Boss fame said that he was dating Pratyusha Banerjee. Yes, you read that right! He revealed that he was dating two women who knew that he was bisexual. He told ETimes TV, “I were with two women who knew the reality. One was Pratyusha Banerjee. i don’t want to name the other one.”
Further, he added, “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 do not 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!”
Pratyusha Banerjee died in 2016 of an apparent suicide. Her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh was accused of abetment to suicide. Talking about him, Vikas said, “The visual I remember of Rahul Raj Singh is he was eating chips outside the hospital (when Pratyusha had died by suicide). I entered to see that Makrand Malhotra was around and he was calling up people. Pratyusha had dated Makrand (before Rahul) and that was the sweetest relationship of her life.”
In 2019, Vikas had paid tribute to Pratyusha on three-year anniversary of her death. “Today is 1st of April and Everytime I hear it’s April fool’s day instead if smiling which I did, I think of you #Pratyusha I remember the call which I thought was a prank call and it reminds me of the 20 mins I sat alone looking at you. no one was there. Mak was running around outside trying to sort things and figure things (Good Man) others were yet to know that you have gone.”
“You were a star that left our universe too soon. This world is cruel and every year i learn more. I am sorry i wasn’t there when you needed. Yes you never asked for help but this world is a little like that even when help is asked no one comes forward. We see signs but we avoid them. I really hope you are in a better place,” he added.
In the same interview, Vikas Gupta also spoke about his relationship with his father. When it was mentioned to him that he had had a strained relationship with his father almost since childhood, he said, “I kind of went ahead with my mother’s perspective on her relationship with my father. But I figured out my Dad as he stayed with me for a year, recently. Whatever memories i could not make with him earlier, I managed to form them during the lockdown period.”
When asked about how his family members learnt about his sexuality he told.
Siddharth had an idea, mom didn’t know about it. i think my mom got an idea in 2015 when Parth Samthaan filed fake cases against me. But they didn’t want me to go public, primarily because my sister was married in Rajkot to a really orthodox family. You see, it was all about log kya kahenge. The actual fact that I wasn’t invited to my brother’s birthday celebration which my mother attended was proof enough that they didn’t want to accompany me because they feel ashamed about the person i’m.
