Bigg Boss 11 contestant Priyank Sharma who was asked to leave the house for pushing fellow participant Akash Dadlani during a fight has rubbished link-up rumours with television producer Vikas Gupta. “As per the grapevines, apart from Vikas I am also dating Hina and Benafsha. I am in too much demand it seems. But on a serious note, it’s all nonsense and complete rubbish. Please don’t pay heed to these rumours,” he said in an interview with The Indian Express.

Former Roadies Rising and Splitsvilla contestant was asked to leave the show by host Salman Khan for indulging in physical violence. Sharma had jumped into a fight between rapper Akash Dadlani and Vikas Gupta and pushed the former in heat of the moment. Priyank Sharma has said that he is sad to be out of the house in this manner, but at the same time overwhelmed with all the love and support his fans were showering him with.“It’s definitely an incomplete feeling. Yes, I am sad that I am out of the house but I am also happy to receive so much of love from so many people. The way they have supported me is surreal. I just feel too lucky at the moment,” Sharma was quoted as saying.
