Manmeet Grewal, Preksha Mehta to Kushal Punjabi-TV actors who committed suicide

Like Bollywood celebs, television actors also have a huge fan following. Some have achieved a lot in their career, while there are some who failed to climb the ladder of success. Both the industries look glamorous from outside, but there are some actors who are not as happy as they look. Deep inside, they go through depression and bad phases and finally they end their lives.

In the television industry, there are many such celebs who left for the heavenly abode at a very young age by committing suicide.

**Memorial Post** – Today we honor Nafisa Joseph, Miss Universe India 1997. March 28th 1978 – July 29th 2004. (I'm a few hours late on this one, remembered it at the last minute) Nafisa started modeling when she was 12 years old. When she competed for Miss Universe she was the youngest contestant that year. In addition to her modeling and TV hosting duties, she was a lover of animals and campaigned for Welfare of Stray Dogs (WSD), PETA, People For Animals (PFA), other various organizations for animal protection, and she wrote a weekly column called 'Nafisa for Animals' in the Bangalore edition of The Times of India. On July 29th 2004 she unfortunately committed suicide by hanging herself in her home. She was set to marry businessman Gautam Khanduja a few weeks later. According to her parents, she committed suicide because her marriage was called off. This was due to the fact that she discovered he was still married, although he told her he had been divorced for 2 years. When she confronted him about it, he refused to answer questions about his marital life or produce divorce papers that he had previously claimed he had filed. Instead, press reports at the time mention that he then threatened to blackmail her, probably after she threatened to confront his wife. Nafisa's parents filed a police report accusing her fiance of abetting her death, claiming that he had been desperate to get out of the wedding for some time, and sought his custodial interrogation. In November of 2005 the trial against him was stayed by the Bombay High Court until January of 2006. He claimed that there was no evidence to prove the breaking off the engagement led to her suicide. #pageant #pageants #pageantry #beauty #beautiful #beautyqueen #beautyqueens #beautypageant #beautypageants #Crown #sash #Sparkle #titleholder #titleholders #MissUniverseOrganization #MissUniverse1997 #MissUniverse #MissUSA #MissUniverseIndia1997 #MissUniverseIndia #FeminaMissIndiaUniverse1997 #FeminaMissIndia1997 #FeminaMissIndia #NafisaJoseph #INDIA
