ControversiesLodged a Complaint against Ekta Kapoor
In 2007, Pulkit departed from the TV show 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' after a dispute with Ekta Kapoor. He openly confronted her, accusing Balaji Telefilms of unfair treatment regarding actors' fees. Pulkit filed a lawsuit against Ekta, claiming she harmed his reputation publicly and owed him Rs 3.21 lakh. Consequently, Pulkit faced challenges in finding work as Balaji and other TV production companies refrained from hiring him. [4]India Today

Broke Hotel Furniture
Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam's second romantic movie, 'Junooniyat,' didn’t fare well at the box office. Pulkit seemed to struggle with this setback, particularly because it was the second consecutive disappointment for the rumored couple. Reports surfaced of Pulkit losing his temper at the Mumbai airport and later damaging hotel furniture. Allegedly, he was dissatisfied with the producers for not allocating sufficient funds for 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. [5]The Times of India

Misbehaved with Media
At Mumbai airport, Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam were spotted together. Pulkit, who had recently separated from his wife, became upset upon encountering the paparazzi and even threatened a reporter by lifting his suitcase when questioned. Meanwhile, Yami decided to exit the airport without interacting with the media. [6]The Times of India
