In the past few years, the Tamil television industry has suffered many losses of lives to suicide.
In 2020, Actress VJ Chithra ended her life in a hotel room at the peak of her career.
More recently, actor Srivatsava known for the movie Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta died by suicide on February 4, 2021.
In another case, on February 15, 2021, Bollywood was shocked by the tragic demise of Sandeep Nahar, who starred in movies like Akshay Kumar’s Kesari and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.
Nahar allegedly took the extreme step after uploading a nine-minute video announcing his intentions on Facebook.
He was later found dead in his apartment in Mumbai.
In the video, he accused his wife, Kanchan Sharma, and mother-in-law of picking up arguments almost every day about past issues and blackmailing him.
The late actor opened up about the personal and professional problems he was facing, mentioning Bollywood and the “politics” revolving around it.
Nahar even added that he thought of ending his life earlier but did not do so, hoping that issues would get resolved.
Suchitra Pillai, who had worked with Sandeep in a show, had revealed that she had got to know that Sandeep was very upset with Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise.
She had told a media outlet:
“He was totally shocked. He would ask why would anybody do such a thing? He was very much affected by the whole episode. So, it is shocking for us that he himself took this step.”
