TV actress Sejal Sharma, known for her role of Simmy Khosla in the show “Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji”, allegedly committed suicide on Friday.
Sejal was found hanging at around 4 am on Friday at her residence in Mira Road in the neighbouring Thane district of Maharashtra. Two of her friends were present at her residence at the time. A suicide note has also been recovered. In the suicide note recovered by the police, Sharma has stated that she was taking the extreme step due to personal reasons, a police official told PTI.
Sejal’s co-star Nirbhay Shukla has claimed she was stressed.
Nirbhay told SpotboyE, “Sejal was mentally stressed due to her father’s health. I had texted her on November 15 to meet and she replied me saying that she was travelling to Udaipur for a medical emergency. I asked her what had happened and she replied me saying that her father had got a heart attack.”
He further said, “Sejal’s father was unwell since quite sometime; he was suffering from cancer. The heart attack must have shaken her up. I kept following with her and she said he’s recovering— but all is not well. And, then I got busy with my work.”
Sejal Sharma, who is from Udaipur, came to Mumbai in 2017 to pursue a career in acting. Before her debut on the Star Plus show “Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji”, she appeared in a few commercials. She had also featured in a web series titled “Azad Parindey”.
