When Parth was not sure if he should be in or out of a show...
Parth Samthaan

Parth Samthaan is a confused soul. When 'Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan' became popular, he threw tantrums over sharing his vanity van, his remuneration and what not. When his demands were not met, he threatened to quit and sent feelers to the media. Then he took to social media to announce plans to quit, but ultimately decided to stick around. And oh, he really did walk out of the show when better offers came his way only to go back to it later.

...And when he started keeping score of his sexual conquests
Parth, who ironically had earlier claimed he was a virgin on a chat show, later allegedly created a Whatsapp group to — hold your breath — discuss his and his friends' sexual conquests and then compare their scores. An amused friend decided to leak the information and Parth, of course, denied having done anything of that sort. His co-star Utkarsh Gupta, however, reportedly confirmed the buzz.
