16 Feb 2021: 'MS Dhoni' actor found dead after posting 'suicide note'

Actor Sandeep Nahar, who was seen in movies like Kesari and Sushant Singh Rajput-starrer MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, was found dead at his Mumbai home on Monday.

Hours before that, he had shared a suicide note along with a video on Facebook talking about his intention to end his life.

He was taken to the SRV Hospital but was declared brought dead.

Relationship: Nahar talked about marital problems on Facebook

On Facebook, Nahar wrote about the unhealthy relationship he shared with his wife of two years, Kanchan Sharma.

The couple fought almost every day on petty issues, he wrote, adding that he just couldn't deal with this anymore. Nahar alleged that his mother-in-law also harassed him.

He, however, claimed that no one should be held responsible for his death.

Reason: 'Politics' in Bollywood also forced Nahar to take extreme step

Nahar was also disturbed by the "politics" in Bollywood, which he alleged stole opportunities from him at the last moment.

He revealed this was not the first time he thought of ending his life but he hoped that things would get better.

"Now, I will have to take this step happily as this life has only shown me hell," he purportedly said.

Details: Wife was in house when incident happened

The actor's wife was present in the house when the incident happened. She rushed Nahar to the hospital but couldn't save him, a senior cop said.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Vishal Thakur said, "The body has been sent for post-mortem and the exact cause of his death can be ascertained after that. (sic)"

A case has been registered and a probe is underway.

Information: Last year, Bollywood was jolted by Rajput's untimely demise

In June last year, Nahar's co-star Rajput had also died by alleged suicide. The SSR death case remained a much-discussed topic across India for months at stretch.

The probe was handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) by the Supreme Court in August.

Agencies like Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) were also involved with the sensational case.
