Life is very strange! In a surprising news, the actor Vishal Thakkar who is known for his role in Sanjay Dutt starrer Munnabhai MBBS in 2003 has been missing since 2015. Yes, you read it right! Vishal’s mother told the police that it was December 31, 2015, when the actor asked his mother Durga to join him to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens at a theatre.
It was the last time she saw her son. According to a report published in a leading website,
“At 10.30 pm, Vishal borrowed Rs 500 from Durga and left their Mulund flat. At 1 am, he texted his father Mahendra, a businessman:
‘I am going to a party. See you tomorrow.’
The next morning, Thakkar went missing. Vishu, as his family called him, would be 33 years old now.
Durga, Vishal’s mother who is 60 years old now has said that
“I have no clue what happened to my son.”
It has been three years since he’s missing, but the police is clueless. Police said he was last seen with his girlfriend on Ghodbunder Road at 11.45 am on January 1, 2016. The actor boarded an autorickshaw to Andheri for a shoot. His last Facebook post was at 12.10 pm, he wrote, ‘Happy New Year’.
Soon his phone was found switched off. No hospital reported an unidentified man matching his description, there was no ransom call and his phone was never found switched on again. Even his bank account has shown no activity since.
To let you know, in 2015 before 3 months of his missing, Vishal mired in a rape case controversy. He was accused of a rape by his alleged girlfriend. Surprisingly, the complaint was withdrawn by her as the couple resolved their differences.
Reportedly, he was mentally disturbed as he had no work, and his image was further ruined due to the rape controversy. He is best known for his roles in films like Munnabhai MBBS (2003) and Tango Charlie (2005) and popular TV comedy Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma.
