Just a day after the news of the sudden death of TV actor Pratyusha Banerjee shocked the Television industry, an ex-manager of a Bollywood actor has revealed that suicidal tendency is quite common in girls in the film industry
Ex-manager Prakash Jaju cited the example of the Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra.
Chopra attempted suicide three times during her struggling days including in 2002 after the death of her alleged former boyfriend Aseem Merchant’s mother, claimed Prakash.
In a series of tweets, Jaju said the 33-year-old “Quantico” star was extremely close to Merchant’s mother and did not take her demise well.
“PC was very close to Aseem merchant’s mother, her death in 2002 shattered her so much that she tried to jump off karan apt to commit suicide,” Jaju wrote.
“I reached at nick of time and caught hold of her and tied her to a chair till grills were fixed in all the windows of the flat.”
The celebrity manager added he wanted to make a point “that suicidal tendency is in most of the girls of film industry.”
Priyanka, who is shooting in Los Angeles for her maiden Hollywood film “Baywatch”, did not immediately respond to messages for her comments on Jaju’s claims.
Jaju also spoke about TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, who was found dead at her home on April 1 in a suspected case of suicide.
