This morning, we woke up to the saddening news of TV actor Kushal Punjabi’s demise. The actor committed suicide by hanging himself in his Bandra residence. The entire industry has been mourning over his loss and the 43-year-old actor is survived by his wife and son.
We also told you that his funeral is being planned for tomorrow as his wife Audrey Dolhen will fly down from France to India tonight. Now, we got in touch with his ex-girlfriend Meghna Naidu who was also disturbed by the actor's suicide.
Speaking exclusively to SpotboyE.com, Meghna said, “It is just tragic and shocking to hear that he committed suicide because he came across as a very happy and enthusiastic person, from what I saw on my friends’ social media updates. I feel for his son and family. I hope they stay strong in this tough time.”
Considering that they broke up way back in 2010, we asked if they kept in touch thereafter. Meghna replied, “No I haven't been in touch with Kushal for more than 10 years. I don't remember when we met last. Frankly it’s been ages that I met Kushal or his family so I don’t have much to say except that it is shocking to hear about the way he passed away. It saddens me that mental health issues can be so harming to one’s health.”
Kushal and Meghna were in a serious relationship long before he got married and they were on the verge of tying the knot, but things didn’t work out and they split in 2010.
