Like with Reena Roy's sister Barkha, Mahesh Anand married Usha Bachani after a torrid, passionate affair. And again, it was too good to last. Mahesh and Usha parted ways in 2002, their marital bliss (if you want to call that) completed just 2 years. Ask her today why they split, Usha simply says, "He is gone now. I rather not talk about it."
But when asked to say something about Mahesh's passing away, Usha was far more forthcoming than Barkha (Mahesh's 1st wife) who had sent us 2 folded-hands emojis not once but twice when we asked her to talk about Mahesh. Said Usha, "I came to know about Mahesh's demise only through media. It's very sad that he is no more. May his soul rest in peace." Usha added that they were not in touch after she walked out on him. "That was 17 years ago. And yes, I was not in touch with him at all after I left him, not even with his family."
Update on post-mortem report: Senior PI, Ravinder Badgujar, informs us, "The post-mortem is done, but now they are doing a visceral analysis (which determines if any poison caused death). Only after that report, we shall be able to conclude if Mahesh committed suicide or it was a natural death." It is believed that Mahesh was facing a severe financial crunch as he had virtually no work in films since the last 18 years. Pahlaj Nihalani brought him back from wilderness with a brief role in Rangeela Raja starring Govinda, Mishika and Shakti Kapoor (which released last month), but clearly that did not end Mahesh's frustration.
Mahesh Anand acted in several films as villain including Shahenshah, Coolie No. 1, Swarg, Kurukshetra and Vijeta, sharing screen space with top Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Govinda and Sanjay Dutt.
On the other hand, Usha had joined Kundali Bhagya when she replaced Pyumori Mehta, who played the role of Kareena Luthra, bua of Karan (Dheeraj Dhoopar). The senior actress was also a prominent member of Kkusum and Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani.
