- In an interview with DNA, Ekta Kapoor gave controversial statements about Parth. She said:
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.
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.
However, Parth denied dating Vikas Gupta and said that it was rather a girl that he dated.
- Parth was also involved in a controversy in 2017 where a 20-year-old model accused him of molestation and also registered a police complaint against him. Parth called these allegations false and baseless.
- Samthaan was placed at the position 11th in the list of “Top 50 Sexiest Asian Men List” by Eastern Eye.
- Parth Samthaan is also referred to as the Emraan Hashmi of the TV industry because of his kissing scenes.
- He is a close friend of Ayaz Ahmed and Charlie Chauhan.
- He is a supporter of IPL team “Chennai Super Kings.”
- Apart from the acting field, Parth also dreamt of becoming a Cricketer. His father was a professional Cricketer and has played Ranji Trophy.
- He has a habit of saying “Kya baar kar raha hai!” whenever someone tells him something.
