Nearly half a decade later, television producer Vikas Gupta revealed that he once dating Banerjee.

Gupta, who came out as bisexual told ETimes that he was in a relationship with Priyank Sharma and Parth Samthaan. However, in terms of women, he had a fling with Pratyusha and another woman he didn’t wish to name.

Gupta told the daily that Banerjee came to know about him being bisexual after they broke up.

I need the money... I’m very blatant about it. Things have not been right and people haven’t been good to us.”
