Divya Agarwal and boyfriend Varun Sood have cut cords with Ace of Space host Vikas Gupta. Recently, in a live chat session, Varun informed his fans that they have been nominated for some random awards. However, things turned southwards when they learned that the award was organized by Vikas Gupta. Divya and Varun’s fans had gone all out to support their favorite couple, however, later Divya posted a story on her social media urging them to stop. Divya and Vikas broke ties with Vikas Gupta last year. In a conversation with ETimes, Divya spills the beans on what really led to this.
A look at Divya and Varun’s post on Vikas
Divya took to her Instagram story to bash Vikas on the awards. She said, “Vikas keeps organizing these awards and only gives it to his people. He puts our name in the nominations which make our fans go crazy and they go all out to vote for us. But later he gives it to someone he knows. Our fans who give their 100% always get disheartened. Varun also came live to tell his audience not to fall for this, as there were no such awards.”
How the rivalry began
The Ragini MMS star dives into detail about how Vikas would always control their lives and play mind games. Divya said: “I have been watching him closely and consistently, even when I was with Priyank (Sharma) and now when I am with Varun. It has been one year we completely broke ties with him. My reason was different. I was about to appear for Ace of Space 2. He made me wait for 12 hours. I had dengue. He told the channel that ‘Divya is not feeling well, so she went back’.
He would lie from time to time and make you wait on purpose. He also wanted me to make an entry with Chetna (Pandey) in AOS 2. It used to irritate me. He would think of promoting his talents every time. He wouldn’t ask channel or production. He will do what he feels like. This has been going on for the past two years. I would let it go. I thought to myself that I have Varun beside me, so just let it go.
‘He would play mind games with us’
The Splitsvilla runner up further shared Vikas had a problem with everything the couple did. He also had a problem with Varun and I signed a song together. He was like, ‘Yeh label Nahi hai, Kaisa gaana hai, why are you doing this’. For Varun and me, we were doing it because we liked it. But he wanted, everything to go according to him.
He would call us ‘Friends’. But where does the controlling part comes in ‘friendship’? He would play mind games and I just wanted to stay away from that. I was feeling very negative around him, Divya added.
He fueled my fights with Priyank for TRPs
Sharing how there was no privacy during her Ace of Space stint, Divya accused Vikas Gupta of instigating her against Priyank to garner TRPs.
“When I entered Ace of Space, the first point that triggered was the ‘Priyank angle’. I remember, some screenshots of Benafsha were posted through my phone when I was inside the house. Vikas and another friend came inside the house and took me out of my room (in Ace of Space). He told me that my mother is worried and to share those screenshots. Since I couldn’t speak to my mother, I told him to do whatever is right so that my mother is fine.
Later, after coming out of the house I got to know that Vikas forced my manager to post them. My mother told me she didn’t do all of this. He also had our social media account passwords. He forcefully took everything. There was no privacy. I felt jailed.”
Things are sorted since we broke ties
On speaking about favoritism from the channel and Vikas’ manipulation on the show, Divya reiterated that he deliberately used her angst against Priyank. “He was playing mind games the entire time. During the Diwali episode, I had chosen the gifts from my parents. There were both the options but I chose the gift. Initially, Vikas thought that I will choose the open letter. When I didn’t, he made me choose the open letter from Priyank. He wanted me to talk about Priyank for the show. And obviously, when I talk about something that has hurt me in my life, I can go overboard. I always speak out about whatever is happening. Vikas knew this fact that if Divya starts speaking about Priyank she will go on and on. That’s what happened in the show, right? Ever since we broke all our ties with him, things are so sorted.
On winning reality show Ace of Space
The actress further refuted rumors of the channel participating in favoritism. She also talked about how Vikas allegedly claimed that he made her win the show.
He also claimed that he made me win the show. Sab faltu stories that make no sense. I have been working with the channel for so long. I know there is no kind of favoritism inside. They promote people who are hard-working, concluded Divya.
