Pratyusha’s suicide, as shown by the tweets above, was clearly a huge shock, especially for someone so seemingly bubbly and happy. Her fellow Power Couple contestant Salil Ankola told our sister site BollywoodLife.com, “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.”
But there may have been problems in her relationship with Rahul, as BollywoodLife.com claims that she was “extremely depressed” over cheating allegations. There was no suicide note found with Pratyusha. In a recent case development, Rahul was taken in by police for questioning surrounding her death.
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts are with Pratyusha’s friends and loved ones during this difficult time.
