Popular TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, known for her role as Anandi from Balika Vadhu, committed suicide today. She passed away at the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Andheri. Condolences are pouring in from near and dear ones on social media, for Pratyusha.

Apparently, Pratyusha was heart-broken from her failed love affair with Rahul Raj Singh. However, more details are yet to be revealed. 

Confirming the news, Mumbai police spokesperson Dhananjay Kulkarni said that the hospital has sent a report on the Jamshedpur-born actress's death.Police are investigating the probable cause that may have spurred Pratyusha to resort to the extreme step.

Her colleagues from the industry and her fans are in complete disbelief with news that the talented young girl, all of 24, is no more. Veteran actress Surekha Sikri, who played 'Dadisa' to Pratyusha's character in "Balika Vadhu", told IANS: "I am absolutely shocked. I knew her, she was very sweet. She was a sensitive person, she must have taken something to heart and must have got really emotional."

According to Tanuj Garg, former CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures, she had plans to marry her beau Rahul. "Terrible, terrible news about Pratyusha Banerjee. Met her once at a party. How extreme must pressures be to drive one to take one's own life. Friends met Pratyusha Banerjee and her boyfriend Rahul (who owns a production house) on Holi and they seemed happy. They were to get married," Garg shared on Twitter.

The virtual world went into a tizzy once the news of Pratyusha's suicide surfaced, with many hoping that it is an April Fools' joke.

Hailing from Jharkhand, Pratyusha catapulted to fame with her role in "Balika Vadhu" between 2010-2013. She was later seen in the reality dance show "Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 5", "Bigg Boss 7" and hosted some episodes of "Savdhan India". She recently appeared in "Sasural Simar Ka". Pratyusha was earlier dating businessman named Makrand Malhotra, with whom she had a bitter break-up and against whom she had lodged a complaint for abusive behaviour.

Earlier this year, Pratyusha had filed an FIR against eight men, including three policemen, claiming they tried to barge into her residence here in relation with a car loan that her boyfriend Rahul Singh had taken from a bank.

Shocking !

Such a pretty actress. Just don't know peoples state of mind, scary.

In her last interview with India TV she said: "Is baar bhi aap ko bohat dhamakedar melne wala hai, I can assure you I'll soon be doing something very surprising and very soon" and she was right, she gave us the biggest surprise ever: she committed suicide. Sad that such young girls with such a promising career take such drastic measures. She was soooooo beautiful and cheerful :'(

She was such a cutie!! Rest in peace!!!

Oh!! Im so heartbroken..I was not her die-hard fan but noone should commit suicide when a relationship fails. There is more to life than just a failed relationship. So many people whom you make happy just by being there. Strength to her parents!

Suicide is not a solution to anything !! High time to start spreading awareness about depression and start enacting. Please girls dont end your life for scumbags...ur parents have invested a lot more in you, think about them before doing something thats irreversible.

She was my age...so young. RIP

Another person which went through abusive relation and breakup is Aishwarya rai.she did not suicide.she came back stronger than ever.please don't do this girls.nobody is worth dying for,except your kids.

Just recently a girl committed suicide because she was getting bullied by other girls. No one really listened to her as they thought it was a phase and she was also depressed, however no one really took it too seriously. No matter where you are, it is important to talk to someone who actually listens and no one should take depression or anything too lightly or it could end up only one way.

OMG! How sad! I remember her and Kamya from Big Boss.

exactly my thoughts. She was cute. RIP pretty girl. So sad. I hope nothing bad happened to her that she took this step.

Why give up your life for a man? And that too a looser who ran away?? Nothing is worth that. I really vividly remember her from BB7 and remember thinking she was just a kid. And now she's gone. So young, RIP.

Sorry to hear the death of this beautiful young child.it is definitely not worth to die for any man,especially one as Rahul whoever.
There are so many brave ladies here,Jennifer wingett sadhana nigam,Suzanne Khan,Reena khan and so on....they were all dumped by their spouses,yet they are proudly facing the world.
And these are just celebrities.we know millions of females go through this road everyday and emerge stronger.don't do it girls always talk to your parents when going through a crisis,when you are 10,20,30,40,50,60.only your parents truly care for you and help you.talk to them don't take this drastic step.

Her boyfriend beat her and even in public, her boyfriend had to have another girl and she learned. Sooo sad!9

Didn't know of her but what terrible news.... the poor family will never have closure. Such a young life just snuffed out...wish there were counselors one could reach out anonymously. Life is painful ... and many have thoughts in weak moments. So so sad... RIP lovely girl.

IT is not just bollywood which harbors people with depression.It is very common and even though not everyone has suicidal thoughts,there can be many triggers to the same, yet it is nevr sudden.It does not make sense to expect a person with depression to become strong because it's a disorder just like Common cold.You cannot cure yourself of cold by wish.It is the ignorance among the friends ,family and colleagues.One underestimates the inner blackhole the other person is and when the person has noone to support or nothing to look forward to in life, they don't see any point in it.It's not revenge,it's losing hope.Being sad and losing interest in life are different things.Bollywood and tele industry is a place full of triggers ,with unstable career,finances, relationships, habits,friendships.

Such a beautiful young girl. So sad. No one is worth this. Rest in peace dear.

Rest in peace, I remember her in Big boss house

May her soul R.I.P.

she was just 24! girl why have you done this..whatever been the reasons but your life was much more important than that! i hope this is not true.

Life is much more than a broken heart... RIP Pratyusha... All those making fun of mental illness on various posts, be kind, make sure you are not adding onto whatever is already going on in their lives.

RIP Pratyusha

Very sad . No man is worth crying for ,let alone killing yourself . There were reports that the serial will also be coming to an end ,perhaps it was the last straw for her.RIP Pratyusha.

RIP Pratyusha! She was so stunning and such a good actress, I was hoping this was a April Fool's joke but guess not

She was so beautiful!! Sometimes you just meet the wrong people at the wrong time. Still a child. Hope she rests in peace!!

Her Boyfriend started seeing someone else. She got engaged to him in December 2015. Some of her coactors are suspecting this a preplaned murder. Police is planning to question her Boyfriend.

Depression is a very serious medical condition. Wish there was more help out there!

RIP :(

Who is this Rahul Raj Singh?

This is so unfortunate and shocking. RIP Pratusha. She was very versatile TV actor.

hope this not a joke

:(

OMG another one :-( RIP!!

She was raped two months ago, I think that the cause of her suicide.So sad. RIP

Some of you need to check your facts before commenting here. There is a difference between rape and molestation. RIP Pratyusha!!

She is not the same Pratyusha who was raped. That was a different Pratyusha, who was also an actress.

Really ?

omg. this is shocking, i have just fallen off a cliff hearing this news. :( it's not that i was her fan, but i really thought she had a great potential, young vibrant and a good actress. ending your life is not a solution to anything. look what jiah did, but look where sooraj is now. it doesnt matter to him, he is still dancing and doing movies. meaning ppl who we make a reason to take our lives for, it doesnt matter to them. what we make out of your lives matter at the end of the day, it's our own thoughts that makes us happy. i know because i have been sucidal in the past over certain health issues. but i knew life was too precious and anything can be solved. i really wish no more ppl take this drastic steps. :( :(

Veryy shocking!! RIP dear

Whatttt!!!!!Can't believe it...RIP Pratyusha...

This is so depressing, I pray that may Allah grant her a place in paradise and give her family strength

ladies like this are PROBLEM. if it din't work out .. i will kill myself? really?

If you can't think of anything nice to say then STFU! This isn't some attention seeking ploy, the attention seekers don't kill themselves, they only act out. A suicide takes time, it is well planned, and then executed by the person who has been depressed or thinking about it of r a while. This is a severe mental illness.

Tragic because Suicide is a result of unresolved mental health problems. Please don't hide and seek help from trusted people. It is too late when you won't.

R.I.P.pratyusha

R.I.P.pratyusha

R.I.P.
