Television actor Parth Samthaan and producer Vikas Gupta's legal battle is getting uglier. Parth accused Vikas of molestation and now the producer has released a photo of the actor kissing him on his cheek.

Parth accused Vikas of molestation, non-payment of dues and threatening of ruining his career. The "Kaisi Yeh Yaariyaan" actor also filed a complaint at Versova Police Station in Andheri, Mumbai, alleging that Vikas asked Rs 50,00,000 as "ransom" amount.

Parth-Vikas tussle took an interesting turn when their common friend Ekta Kapoor, the daily soap queen, revealed that the two were in a relationship and they have even spent time together in 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.

And now, Vikas supported Ekta's claim by posting some cosy photos of the two on social media. Vikas remained silent on the entire issue, but on Thursday, the producer and programming head of a Hindi General Entertainment Channel shared a photo of Parth kissing him on his cheeks with a message.

"When you accuse that someone tried to touch u inappropriately and is threatening you . You don't do this . The boy who claimed I molested him and continues to torture me and my family through his friends and fans. I don't know who is molesting who and touching inappropriately in this picture. Noone molested each other @the_parthsamthaan u r a liar and your legal notice is a lie and sham. You will not insult another family member and friend again," Vikas posted.

Vikas also plans to hold a press conference on Saturday in connection with Parth's accusations.
