In a startling revelation, producer Ekta Kapoor said that "Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan" actor Parth Samthaan, who accused producer Vikas Gupta of molestation, is lying. Ekta also said that Parth and Vikas were in a relationship, according to DNA.

'Good friends' Parth and Vikas have reportedly grown cold towards each other after the actor accused the programming head of a Hindi General Entertainment Channel of molestation and now, Ekta's revelation has added fuel to the fire. Common friend Ekta told the leading daily that the two were in a relationship and even went on a holiday to Bangkok.

"Vikas and Parth were close to each other and were in a relationship. Parth has accused Vikas of touching him inappropriately on December 7, 2013 and 20 days later, he was with Vikas holidaying in Bangkok! I know because I was also there to bring in the New Year. I have seen several videos of him professing his love for Vikas," Ekta told DNA.

An insider further said that the reason behind the legal battle between the two is because their relationship came to an end.

"The reason Parth has become bitter towards Vikas who gave him a break in his TV show is because the relationship came to an end. But he seems to have forgotten that he has a career thanks to Vikas, who groomed him and presented him. They were together for over three years. It's very convenient to turn around and accuse your lover of being a molestor/rapist. You see starlets doing it all the time. Now male actors seem to have started using this tactic as well," the source told the daily.

Meanwhile, Parth reacted on Ekta's statement and said that many people knew that he was in a relationship with a girl and he and Vikas were just good friends.
