Pratyusha Banerjee, the very much loved protagonist of the famous television show, ‘Balika Vadhu’ committed suicide. She was found hanging from a ceiling fan at her Kandivili residence in Mumbai on Friday. She was immediately taken to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital where she succumbed to death.
Mumbai police are still investigating the case to find out the real cause which caused our beloved ‘Anandi’ to take such a hard step. Her death is surely a sorrow for all her family, friends, fans and her co-workers.
Surekha Sikri, the actress who plays the role of ‘dadisa’ in the show and a co-worker of Pratyusha Banerjee expressed her remorse, “I am absolutely shocked. I knew her, she was very sweet. She was a sensitive person, she must have taken something to heart and must have got really emotional.”
Tanuj Garg, former CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures, the company for which Pratyusha used to work stated that Pratyusha had plans to marry her longtime Boyfriend Rahul Singh.
“Terrible, terrible news about Pratyusha Banerjee. Met her once at a party. How extreme must pressures be to drive one to take one’s own life. Friends met Pratyusha Banerjee and her boyfriend Rahul (who owns a production house) on Holi and they seemed happy. They were to get married,” Tanuj Garg shared on Twitter.
Other celebrities and her co-workers shared their sorrow too:
