Struggling Indian actor Kunal Singh of Dil Hi Dil Mein fame allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at his rented apartment in the posh Lokhandwala complex locality on Thursday.
Singh’s close friend Lavina, who was present in the apartment for some official work Wednesday at the time of the incident, found his body, the police said.
The reason behind the actor taking the extreme step is yet to be ascertained, a senior police officer from the Oshiwara police station said.
The unconfirmed reason being cited is his inability to make it big in Bollywood, which led him to do such an act.
The 31-year-old actor acted in some Hindi movies including ‘Dil Hi Dil Mein’ opposite Sonali Bendre released in 2000 and also featured in several Tamil movies.
Lavina, 23, who is into film production, had visited Singh’s apartment to discuss his forthcoming untitled Hindi movie, police officials said.
Singh is survived by his wife and two children and was living at Oshiwara for the last one-and-a-half years.
It’s really unfortunate if he died just because he could make his career take off in the industry and it indeed puts light on the issue of young actors taking Bollywood so seriously.
