As the video proceeded, Vikas Gupta discussed with his followers the bullying he has faced on social media. He called out Priyank Sharma and Parth Samthaan in the video for putting him through “mental torture.”

The producer clarified that he has never been involved in any casting couch and asked the actors to come out and speak if they ever went through such a situation.

“It has been years of torture and humiliation and hiding my emotions but that has not stopped me from being a good human being who is constantly evolving,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Both #parthsamthaan and #priyanksharma have done terrible things but I will not shame them either of what all has happened cause mud slinging is what one of them loves. I spoke today because they pushed me to this extent. I will put one last post after both have spoken. To give what is needed for people to know the truth. After which they can do and keep doing what they want to,” Vikas mentioned.
