Vikas Gupta made headlines for claiming that he was in a brief relationship with Pratyusha Banerjee. The Balika Vadhu actress died by suicide on April 1, 2016. After Vikas' interview with a leading daily, Rahul Raj Singh, the person whom Pratyusha was dating before death, hit back at the creative producer for cooking up false stories for publicity. Now, Pratyusha's best friend, Kamya Panjabi, slammed Vikas.
The actress told a leading daily, "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."
She further said nobody has the right to talk about her when she isn't alive to clarify all the claims. "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. 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," Kamya added.
Kamya and Pratyusha bonded on Bigg Boss 7. After the latter's untimely demise, Kamya has been at the frontline to fight for justice.
