Balika Vadhu Actors Who Are No More, amazing actors who hold a special place in our hearts!

Here is the list of actors from the serial Balika Vadhu who are no more.

In the recent years, the entertainment industry lost very talented and capable actors. But 3 such prominent stars had acted together in the same serial and left this world. That serial was Balika Vadhu. 

Balika Vadhu is a 2008 drama that was based on child marriage reportedly prevailing in many parts of Rajasthan. The show ran for 8 long years and got off air on 31 July 2016.

This show was blessed with a talented star cast including Pratyusha Banerjee, Surekha Sikri, Sidharth Shukla, Anup Soni, Avika Gor, Vikrant Massey, Avinash Mukherjee, and many others.

Unfortunately, 3 actors from the popular show are no more in the world.

Here is the list of actors from the serial Balika Vadhu who are no more.

Pratyusha Banerjee (1991 – 2016)

Pratyusha Banerjee was introduced in the serial as grown-up Anandi. On 1 April 2016, Pratyusha was found hanging from the ceiling in her Bangur Nagar house at Kandivali, Mumbai. She had not left any suicidal note or reason for such a drastic step. 

However, Pratyusha’s parents alleged that

her live-in boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh had killed her. They registered an FIR against him stating, Raj had tortured their daughter and induced her to commit suicide. Whereas Rahul passed the blame on Banerjee’s parents that they had taken several loans in her name and the late actress was unable to pay those.  

The reason for the suicide of this 24-year-old actress is still a mystery. In an interview her parents revealed that there all finances are drained in fighting for justice of their beloved daughter.
