Controversies

Lodged a Complaint against Ekta Kapoor

In 2007, Pulkit left the TV show ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ after a disagreement with Ekta Kapoor and openly confronted her, accusing Balaji Telefilms of unfair treatment regarding actors’ fees. He filed a lawsuit against Ekta, claiming she damaged his reputation publicly and owed him Rs 3.21 lakh. Due to this, Pulkit struggled to find work as Balaji and other TV production companies avoided hiring him.

Broke Hotel Furniture

Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam’s second romantic movie, ‘Junooniyat,’ didn’t do well at the box office. It seems Pulkit had a hard time dealing with this failure, especially because it was the second flop in a row for the rumoured couple. There were reports of Pulkit losing his temper at the Mumbai airport and later damaging hotel furniture. Allegedly, he was upset with the producers for not spending enough on promoting the film. Pulkit reportedly broke a Maharaja chair in his hotel room and demanded the producers cover the Rs 50,000 worth of damage.

Misbehaved with Media

Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam’s second movie together, ‘Junooniyat,’ recently hit the screens. They previously starred in Divya Khosla Kumar’s ‘Sanam Re,’ which came out around Valentine’s Day amidst rumours about their relationship. At the Mumbai airport, they were seen together. Pulkit, who had recently split from his wife, got upset when he saw the paparazzi and even threatened a reporter by lifting his suitcase when questioned. Yami, however, chose to leave the airport without engaging with the media.
