Actress Dolly Bindra today expressed her grief following suspense over the death of Balika Vadhu star Pratyusha Banerjee, saying the latter was strong and cannot commit suicide. “I used to meet her very often. I had met her even prior to the Big Boss show.
She was strong and cannot commit suicide,” Bindra told ANI. Actor Ajaz Khan on his part said it appears to be a planned murder. “I don’t think it’s a suicide. I think it’s a planned murder,” he said.
Pratyusha hanged herself from a fan at her Kandivli residence but was found and taken to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital where she succumbed. The Mumbai Police is investigating the matter.
Reports suggest that the actress was facing problems in her relationship with boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh. Her last status message on Whatsapp read, “Marke bhi muh na tuzse modana” (even after death won’t be turning my face away from you) with a smiley.
The Jamshedpur-born actress followed on her early success with popular TV serial ‘Balika Vadhu’ as Anandi. She was later seen in the reality dance show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5, Bigg Boss 7 and hosted some episodes of Savdhaan India. She recently appeared in Sasural Simar Ka.
