Last year, television heartthrob Parth Samthaan had sent a legal notice to producer Vikas Gupta accusing of him of molestation and non-payment of dues. And recently, he made it to the headlines yet again for involved with the Splitsvilla 8 contestant Gaurav Arora and straying from the relationship. Gaurav, who now identifies as a transgender and prefers to be addressed as Gauri Arora, has hinted at being in a relationship with Parth. During an interview, she stated that she was physically involved with a popular TV actor, who made her feel like a woman before her transition. But then the actor broke her heart by cheating on her. She also revealed that this guy comes to her gym and has now started distancing himself from her after her transformation.
Parth rubbished these allegations and told India forums: “I don’t know why my name is being dragged in this. I don’t know who Gaurav is and have never met him before. He comes to the same gym. I also remember one of my friends in the gym speaking about his transformation and I even applauded him for having the guts to undergo such a transformation and that too, under the full public glare. It is said that we met in Goa during Splitsvilla’s shoot, however, the fact is that I have never been on the Splitsvilla shoot in Goa. It’s all a lie.”
But recently, Gauri gave another statement where she said: “Vikas had provoked me to spread fake rumours about Parth in order to get benefits from the actor’s popularity,” Gauri said.
The director of Parth’s debut movie, Googly Ho Gayi – Subhash Singh’s also came to the actor’s rescue and told India Forums:
“Parth is my film Googly Ho Gayi’s hero. He previously worked in Vikas’ show Kaisi Yeh Yaariyaan, but the duo were not on talking terms due to some non-payment issues and Vikas also threatened Parth that he would throw him out of the industry and destroy his career. Parth has even filed a complaint at the Versova Police station regarding the same. Vikas did not relent and continued to bother Parth. He then used Gauri as a puppet and started spreading rumors of Parth and Gauri dating etc etc. After Gauri’s interview’ in Bombay Times, we filed a case against the newspaper, Gauri and Vikas after which Gauri called me up and apologised. She said that she did not want an innocent’s name to be framed. She fessed up that Vikas had asked her to frame Parth in a rape case so that he would go behind the bars and his revenge would be fulfilled. He also promised Gauri a big show and lots of money.. But Gauri’s self conscience did not agree to Vikas’ malicious plans as she wanted no part in ruining an innocent’s life and career. She begged me to help her. We then met up with Gauri and took her to the police station where she confessed all that Vikas had said to her. Gauri has also confessed that she now fears for her life from Vikas Gupta,” added Subhash.”
Reportedly, Gauri will soon be seen in the Bigg Boss 10 house.
