A young life cut short. Popular Bollywood star Pratyusha Banerjee committed suicide April 1 after hanging herself at her Mumbai home. She was only 24-years-old and her fans are completely freaked out by the news.
So incredibly tragic! Fans are in mourning for Bollywood actress Pratyusha Banerjee following the news that she killed herself at the young age of 24. While the reason behind her suicide still remains a mystery, her fans are flocking to Twitter to remember the beautiful Balika Vadhu star so keep reading for how they are taking the news.
Bollywood Life reported that Pratyusha had become “extremely depressed” over her relationship with boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who she was about to marry. The pair had appeared on the TV show Power Couple together recently and Pratyusha didn’t let on that there were any issues at home, especially none that would cause her to hang herself.
Someone who was with her recently said that there were no signs she was hurting and she was thrilled about her upcoming nuptials. Power Couple participant Salil Ankola said, “Pratyusha and I worked together only a month ago. She was looking forward to her wedding. I just have no words to how shocking this news is. She was a chirpy and fun loving girl. I am still wondering why she took such a step.”
Now her fans on Twitter are wondering the same thing, while mourning her at the same time:

Pratyusha was an up and coming star in her native India, with her breakthrough role coming in 2010 playing Anandi Shivraj Shekhar on the popular drama series Balika Vadhu. After leaving the show in 2013, she appeared on Bigg Boss 7, the Indian version of the American and UK TV hit Big Brother, and in 2014 she appeared on the Indian drama Hum Hain Na. The reason she committed suicide remains a mystery, and clearly is a devastating shock to her fans.
Our thoughts go out to Pratyusha’s family and friends during this devastating time.
