Television actress Pratyusha Banerjee's alleged suicide Friday, April 1, has shocked her fans as well as the TV fraternity. While condolences have been pouring in from friends and close ones, an audio recording of Pratyusha's mother's conversation with TV actress Dolly Bindra has been doing the rounds on the Internet.
In the audio recording, the deceased actress' mother is heard wailing when Dolly calls her to enquire about Pratyusha's death. It was reported that the 24-year-old actress, who rose to popularity as Anandi of "Balika Vadhu," was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her apartment in suburban Kandivli. However, she was rushed to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai, where she declared dead.
While the reason for taking the extreme step is not known yet, it was said that Pratyusha, who was in a relationship with Rahul Raj Singh, was facing turmoil in her love life. While the cops have not recovered any suicide note from Pratyusha's residence, her WhatsApp status, which read: "Mar ke Bhi munh na tujhse modna," hinted at suicide.

According to a Bollywood Life report, Gurmeet Choudhary along with wife Debina Bonnerjee were spotted outside the hospital. Even producer Vikas Gupta, Pooja Banerjee, Sara Khan, Smita Bansal, Jay Bhanushali and Mahi Vij and "Balika Vadhu" actor Sidharth Shulka were spotted at the hospital.
Pratyusha had also participated in "Bigg Boss 7" and "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5" and was last seen in "Sasural Simar Ka" as a daayan (witch).
