This tough lockdown phase has witnessed another tragedy. Actor Sameer Sharma has died after he was found hanging by the ceiling of his kitchen fan. Sharma had rented an apartment in Neha Society in Malad West in February this year.
“A case of accidental death has been registered and the body has been sent for autopsy,” Sr. Inspector George Fernandez told a tabloid. Sharma’s body was spotted by a nightwatchman who then alerted the residents. No suicide note is said to be found.
Sharma worked in the Hindi television industry. He was last seen in the Rajan Shahi’s show Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke on Star Plus. He played the character of Shaurya Maheshwari in the Rajan Shahi show-produced show. Sharma had started his career with the Balaji Telefilms show Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki.
Sharma is among the near half dozen celebrities from the entertainment industry to have committed suicide. On 14 June, Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was dead in his Mumbai home.
