The Hindu has come out with a big story, from which we learn that Anirban Blah, the co-founder of Kwan Entertainment, one of the biggest celebrity management agencies in India, apparently tried to end his life at Vashi Brisdge in the wee hours of Friday. The incident happened at around 12.30 am when traffic police got a tip-off about the alleged suicide. The celebrity manager who has been named and shamed in the on-going #MeToo campaign in complaints by 4 girls to Kwan followed by the constituting of a Shona Urvashi committee, was sacked by the company and absolved off his shareholdings, as confirmed by his brother Indranil Blah EXCLUSIVELY to in an interview which we published last night. Blah was seen climbing on the barricades of the bridge when the police caught hold of him and made him get down.

"We had information about an individual coming towards Vashi bridge to commit suicide. We couldn't take chance and we laid a trap there in dark," senior police inspector Mr Gaikwad from Vashi traffic told The Hindu."He was crying. He seemed very frustrated and depressed. We took him to the police chowky, offered him water and asked his problem to which he said that he was frustrated with the #Metoo allegations on him.
