Vaishali Takkar, well known for playing the role of Anjali Bharadwaj in the popular television serial Sasural Simar Ka passed away yesterday, suicide being the reason behind her untimely demise. The news left the Hindi television industry in a rude shock. The police have recovered a suicide note, where she blames her ex-boyfriend for harassing her, which made her take the extreme step of claiming her life.
The deceased’s close actor friend Vikas Sethi and his wife Jhanvi had talked to her over the phone just the day before she died. She had asked for financial help as she was planning her wedding by the end of this year to her current boyfriend Mikesh. She had also divulged her plans to fly to Mumbai from Indore, her hometown where she was in at the time, after Diwali for wedding shopping. She had wanted to put up at Jhanvi’s home and go shopping together, including the couple’s twins. Vaishali had sounded happy and had informed them that all was going well, according to Jhanvi.
Apart from being a known face from Sasural Simar Ka, some of her other popular roles include Netra Singh Rathod in Vish Ya Amrit, Shivani Sharma in Super Sisters, Sitara and Ananya Mishra in Manmohini 2, and her latest role of Kanak Singhsaal Singh Thakur in the television serial Rakshabandhan.
