In 2020, Bigg Boss 14 contestant, Vikas Gupta had dropped a bomb on Instagram regarding his friend-turned-foe, Priyank Sharma. The producer had claimed that they were more than friends. “He lived with me in this house for 1.5 years and then went on to Bigg Boss 11 with me. After BB, he worked with me on one of my shows. But after the completion of the first schedule, he started harassing me. He stopped coming for the shoot and said that his leg bone has expanded and he is in immense pain but still has to go for shoots. I’ve incurred major losses for that show and people thought that Priyank is such a sweet soul, he is working despite being in pain. I started getting blackmailed that I make a post that Priyank is a great actor or else I won’t come for shoots. Nobody has harassed me the way he has done during this show,” Gupta had shared on his Instagram account.
“He and I were together for a year-and-a-half before he came into the show (Bigg Boss),” he had also shared when he was inside the Bigg Boss house and fans speculated that he was referring to Sharma.
Now, in an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Priyank Sharma has said that he has nothing to say about the allegations of bullying levelled against him. “Pata nahi kaunsi. Yeh unhi ko pata hai, wohi batayenge. Hum jawaab iska kabhi na denge. Hum sirf silent rehte aur grace… Hum yahaan pe kaam karne aaye hai aur usi cheez ka jawaab dete hai. Apne kaam se jawaab aata hai har cheez ka (I don’t know what he’s talking about. Only he knows, he will tell you. I will never answer this question. I will stay silent and graceful. I have come here to work and I will let my work speak),” he said.
“I believe he keeps provoking and saying things. Usko jis cheez mein believe karna hai, kar le yaar. Khush rahe. Par kitna? Ho gaya (Let him believe what he wants to. Let him be happy. But how much will he say such things? Enough is enough). Just be happy, that’s it,” he added.
