Parth Samthaan is not having the greatest week. After screenshots of the WhatsApp group he created (called whores and more whores) became public, he has now accused Vikas Gupta the producer of his show – Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan of molestation! According to Bombay Times, Parth sent Vikas a legal notice earlier this month, which stated that apart from touching him inappropriately, Vikas hasn’t paid him his fees as well. Parth has lodged a police complaint at Versova Police Station. Vikas was summoned by the cops and a statement has been recorded.
A source close to Vikas says that Parth accused him of molestation in December 2013, but soon after that they were holidaying together in Thailand. Parth has also featured in five shows produced by Vikas, so the allegation of non-payment of dues doesn’t seem to be concrete.
In his statement, Parth has said –
Vikas hasn’t cleared my dues of 5,50,000 for Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya, a show that I did with him. In fact, he has been asking me to cough up a ransom of 50,00,000. He has also threatened to ruin my career. I have also informed the cops about the same. I have nothing against him except for the fact that he hasn’t cleared my dues. We were good friends. He has also helped me in my career and I will be always thankful to him. But my hard work can’t be discounted.
Vikas has chosen not to comment on his, but his lawyer has stated –
Vikas has gone through a difficult time because of the nature of allegations that speak of his professional incompetence and casts aspersions on his character. Alleging a producer of attempting to molest and extort money from an actor is bizarre. Vikas will be taking legal action soon. A defamation case is being filed against the Bollywood aspirant.
