The news of Pratyusha Banerjee committing suicide has shocked everyone, but what is more shocking is her WhatsApp status. The status, updated 17 days ago, reportedly hinted at her suicide, Pinkvilla reports.
No suicide note has been recovered from Pratyusha's residence in Kandivali, Mumbai, yet. However, her WhatsApp status, which read, "Mar ke Bhi munh na tujhse modna" (Will not turn away my face even if I die), probably gave a hint about her suicide.
Television actress Pratyusha of "Balika Vadhu" fame reportedly committed suicide Friday at her residence in Mumbai. She was found hanging from the ceiling fan, after which she was rushed to Mumbai's Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital.
While there have been no confirmed reports as to why she took the extreme step, rumours suggest she was facing relationship problems. Pratyusha was in a relationship with Rahul Raj Singh, and the two also revealed this year they would get married soon. However, there were reports that Rahul was getting engaged to someone else and this piece of information broke Pratyusha's heart.
Meanwhile, her industry colleagues express shock over her death.
"I first read that on Twitter and thought it was an April fool's joke. Then I got a call from Tanisha who told me the same. Then my manager too confirmed It. I still cannot believe it. I am shocked. She was so full of life, and always seemed happy. The last time I had met here she was fine and seemed ok. I really don't know how to react now," TV personality VJ Andy told DNA.
"She is no more with us. It's shocking. I spoke to her two-three months back and she was fine that time. I am at the hospital...trying to get details," Siddharth Shukla said.
