Mumbai, Feb 7 (IANS) South Indian actor Kunal Singh, who has also starred in some Bhojpuri movies and one Bollywood movie, has committed suicide at his residence in Oshiwara, northwest suburb of Mumbai.
Singh's close friend Lavina, who was present in the apartment for some official work Wednesday at the time of the incident, found his body, the police said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Vinay Choube told IANS that when Lavina stepped into the bathroom, Singh hanged himself from the ceiling fan in his first floor flat in Windermere apartment.
Since the actor, in his late 30s, did not leave behind a suicide note, the police are awaiting the autopsy report before deciding the line of investigation, Choube added. The body has been sent to the nearby Cooper Hospital in Juhu.
'According to Lavina's statement, she found Singh hanging from the ceiling fan when she came out of the bathroom. She summoned the watchman before calling the police,' Choube said.
Lavina, 23, who is into film production, had visited Singh's apartment to discuss his forthcoming untitled Hindi movie, police officials said.
Singh is survived by his wife and two children and was living at Oshiwara for the last one-and-a-half years.
Police sources suspect marital discord between the actor and his wife as the motive behind the Singh's decision to end his life.
Singh's wife left the house with their children two days back for Ahmednagar, where her parents live, following a heated argument over the actor's alleged close relationship with Lavina, police said.
Singh has starred in Bollywood movie 'Dil Hi Dil Main' opposite Sonali Bendre released in 2000.
