Mumbai, October 16, 2022
Television actress Vaishali Takkar, who is known for her work in shows like 'Sasural Simar Ka', 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai' and 'Super Sisters', passed away at her residence in Indore on Sunday.
She was 29.
The actress is believed to have died by suicide. A case is registered in Tejaji Nagar police station.
Indore police recovered her body from her flat located in Sai Bagh area of the city on Sunday morning. They claimed to have recovered a suicide note from the spot, but the details of the note have not been disclosed.
Vaishali was found hanging in her room by her father early on Sunday. Local police reached the spot and took the body for post-mortem examination.
Thakkar's parents hail from Ujjain's Mahipalpur town and they were living with their daughter in Indore for the last one-and-a-half year, sources told IANS.
"We are investigating the case. A suicide note has been found in her mobile phone. Body has been sent for post-mortem examination. However, it is yet to be known why she took this extreme step. We are investigating the matter," said a senior police official.
Notably, back in April 2021, Thakkar got engaged to the Kenya-based surgeon Dr. Abhinandan Singh and shared a video on her Instagram handle with the caption: "What's yours will Ultimately find you even from another end of the world."
However, later she deleted the video and stopped posting anything about her fiance, which also led to speculation about trouble in her love life.
Vaishali, whose family belongs to Mahidpur, near Ujjain city, completed her education from Educational Multimedia Research Centre (EMRC).
After some time anchoring, she headed to Mumbai where she landed her debut role in Star Plus's popular drama 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai'. In the show, she played the role of Sanjana from 2015 to 2016.
In 2016, she acted as Vrinda in "Yeh Hai Aashiqui". She was last seen in "Rakshabandhan" as Kanak Singhsaal Singh Thakur.
Just five days ago, Vaishali Takkar had posted a funny reel on Instagram. She was very active on the app and often shared videos and pictures of herself.
