Actress Pratyusha Banerjee most remembered as Anandi from Balika Vadhu is no more. She reportedly committed suicide at her residence on Friday morning. She was only 24.
According to a report in Tellychakkar.com, the actress had attempted suicide in her house earlier on Friday by hanging herself. She was rushed to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Mumbai’s suburban Andheri where she was pronounced dead.
While confirming the news, best friend and TV actress Kamya Punjabi broke into tears. “I am not in the right frame of mind to talk,” she said.
Pratyusha allegedly took this drastic step due to issues in her personal life. She was in a relationship with boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh and they were planning to get married soon. However, trouble reportedly brewed between them which led Pratyusha to take this step.
Pratyusha became immensely popular after she played the role of Anandi in Balika Vadhu after the show took its first leap. Later, she quit the show and participated in Bigg Boss 7. She was recently seen in ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ on Colors.
In January, Pratyusha was in news for accusing four policemen of molesting her at her residence in Mumbai.
