Bollywood Punjabi singer, Labh Janjua (55) was found dead at his Mumbai residence on Thursday morning. Several celebrities from the tinsel town took to Twitter to express their grief at the sudden death of the talented singer.
However, all that was apparently limited to social media, as none of the celebrities turned up to help Labh Janjua's wife to deal with the last rites. The woman had come down to Mumbai from Punjab after hearing the news.
"It was unfortunate that initially no one came forward to help his wife. When I went to his house in the morning, the police asked me to call his family and friends to complete legal formalities. While people instantly started tweeting about the tragedy, nobody answered my calls and nobody from the industry turned up. even by 4 pm, only two of us were present at the hospital while a few of Janjua sir's friends joined later," Mumbai Mirror quoted a neighbour of the Punjabi singer as saying.
According to the report, Labh Janjua was found lying on his bed motionless; his maid called up the police and neighbours as he was not responding to the calling bell.
The police opened the door with a duplicate key and the Punjabi singer was rushed to the hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.
Known for some popular songs like "London Thumakda" and "Jee Karda" among many others, Labh Janjua is suspected to have died of a heart attack, while he was alone at his home. However, the exact reason of his death is yet to be known.
Labh Janjua has left behind his father, wife and an 8-year-old son.
