Tunisha Sharma, a television actor, on Saturday allegedly died by suicide on the set of a serial in Vasai in Maharashtra’s Palghar district, and her co-actor, Sheezan Mohammed Khan, has been charged with abetting the suicide.

The 20-year-old went to the washroom on the set and did not return for a long time. When the door was broken down, she was found hanging inside. People on the set took the actor to a hospital, where she was declared dead.

A police team was at the spot, said senior inspector Kailash Barve of Waliv police station. While those on the set say that Tunisha Sharma died by suicide, cops said that they are probing all angles.

The actor and her co-star, who’s been booked on her mother’s complaint, played main roles in the show ‘Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul’, at the sets of which she was found hanging. 

She got into acting as a child actor in the Sony TV show ‘Maharana Pratap’, where she played the role of Chand Kanwar. Since then, she featured in several shows and Bollywood movies, most prominently playing childhood roles of Katrina Kaif’s characters.

Tunisha Sharma was active on Instagram hours before her death. She posted a photo from the shoot set, and captioned it “Those who are driven by their Passion Doesn’t stop.”
