It is also reposted that, Preksha moved to her hometown in Indore before the lockdown happened and since then she was under stress due to work-related problems. She had also mentioned the same on her social media page a few days back.

Actress Richa Tiwari who is her close friend and fellow colleague from her theatre days expressed heartfelt condolence.

Sharing a picture of Preksha, she wrote, "चहरे की हंसी के पीछे ऎसा बहुत कुछ छुपा होता हैं जिसे हर कोई नहीं समझ सकता। प्रेक्षा का आखरी स्टेटस था-"सबसे बुरा होता हैं सपनों का मर जाना" हमें मेंटल हेल्थ के लिए उतना ही जागरूक होना होगा जितना कि हम फिजिकल हेल्थ के लिए होते हैं। हमारे "एम.पी.एस.डी." परिवार की एक सदस्य अब नहीं रही। #RIPPrekshaMehta #artist #TheatreFamily #mpsdfamily #rip #sucide #mentalhealth (There's a lot that's hidden behind a smile, not many understand this. Preksha's last status was - Nothing can be worse than the death of your dreams. We should create mental health awareness as much as physical health. We have lost a member of our M.P.S.D family).
