Pratyusha and Rahul got married two months ago, claims her cousin
New Delhi: The untimely death of television actress Pratyusha Banerjee has come as a rude shock to the entire industry. Engulfed in mystery, the actress’ suicide also points to the dark side of stardom.
Amidst all the new twists and turns the case is taking, Pratyusha Banerjee’s cousin Surbhi Chatterjee has now claimed that her actress sister was married.
“Pratyusha and Rahul got married two months ago at a temple,”
Surbhi told India TV today.
Cricketer-turned-producer Rahul Raj Singh was questioned by the cops on Saturday, a day after he found Pratyusha hanging from a ceiling fan of their residence in Goregaon. Pratyusha’s parents blamed Rahul for torturing their daughter and driving her to take such a tragic step.
Resonating Pratyusha’s parents’ stand, Surbhi said,
“Rahul use to torture Pratyusha physically and mentally. He used to abuse her almost daily. He was surviving only on her money.”
Rahul was admitted to hospital yesterday after reports of being ‘mentally unstable’. This, however, appeared to be a hoax to Surbhi.
“Rahul is faking his illness. He is eating biryani in ICU,”
a furious Surbhi said.
Pratyusha Banerjee shot to stardom after she bagged the lead role in the hit serial, ‘Balika Vadhu’. The 24-year-old girl participated in reality shows like Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, Power Couple and Bigg Boss.
