Television actress Vaishali Takkar was found dead in her Madhya Pradesh home on 16 October i.e. Sunday. The 26-year-old actress has worked in popular television daily soaps like Sasural Simar Ka, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Super Sisters and some more.
She lived with her father and brother in Indore and then on Sunday morning she didn’t come out of her room, her father reportedly went to her room and found her hanging on the ceiling fan.
The family called the police and M Rahman, Indore Assistant Commissioner Police stated that they have recovered a suicide note which suggests that she was stressed and was being harassed by a former boyfriend, news agency ANI reported.
It was a 5-page long suicide note in which Vaishali mentioned about being stressed and harassed by her ex-boyfriend Rahul Navlani. As per the reports, Rahul was Vaishali’s neighbor and in a relationship with her. It was later when Vaishali found out that Rahul was already married and a father of two children.
After parting ways with Rahul, Vaishali got engaged and was soon to get married by the end of 2022. But the suicide note mentions that Rahul was against this and harassed her for the same. Vaishali concluded the suicide note by writing, ‘I QUIT’.
Talking about the actress’ demise, her good friends actor Vikas Sathi and his wife Janvi Rana talked to Times Of India and revealed Vaishali had plans to visit Mumbai after Diwali for her wedding shopping.
Jhanvi says, “I called her the day before for financial help. She told me that she was coming to Mumbai post-Diwali for her wedding shopping. She had planned to stay with us. She had said, ‘ Hum ghoomenge aur bachhon (Jhanvi and Vikas’ twins) ko bhi lekar jaayenge.’ She told me about Mitesh around five months ago, following which I even chatted with him and spoke to him on a video call. He is quite sorted and sweet.”
Vikas said, “She was set to get married in December. The two families were looking forward to finalizing the date soon. When I spoke with her on Friday, she said, ‘ Sab mast chal raha hai.’ She told me that she would do the shopping with us and host a party. She has made elaborate plans for her trip to Mumbai before the wedding. So, the news of her death shocked me to the core. At first, I dismissed it as fake. I asked Jhanvi to call up Vaishali but her calls went unanswered. We called her father, who told us that he was in the crematorium. We froze and broke down eventually. Jhanvi was inconsolable.”
The investigation into Vaishali Takkar’s suicide case is ongoing and fans are demanding justice for the actress.
Team Kiddaan pays its deep condolences to the family and friends of Vaishali Takkar during this time of deep sorrow. May her soul rest in peace.
