April 1 2016 was indeed a black day for the TV industry as beautiful and graceful Pratyusha Bannerjee committed suicide, and shocked everyone. The TV actress best known for her role in “Balika Vadhu” did a short film titled “Hum Kuchh Kah Na Sakey” before her death.

While the film is all set to release on Pratyusha’s first death anniversary, the promo is out and it’s a bit depressing. 

In the promo, we see Pratyusha suffering from depression because of which she turns alcoholic. 

The video seems to have been shot a few days before the actor decided to commit suicide. In the promo, we see her telling her co-star, ‘If you leave right now, you will not be able to see me ever,” which may leave a viewer haunted. 

Ironically, Pratyusha’s co-star’s name in the video is Rahul, which happens to be the name of her longtime boyfriend. This is said to be the last thing Pratyusha said to her real-life boyfriend on phone before she committed suicide.

Another TV actress Kamya Punjabi, a good friend of Pratyusha, can also be seen in the promo. 

In an interview with a leading daily, Kamya said, “As a narrator, I will interlink Pratyusha's reel and real lives, and question viewers on why people change in love and choose to remain silent sufferers. Pratyusha didn't use glycerin while shooting the emotional scenes. I too was nursing heartbreak at that time”.

Pratyusha Banerjee started her career on the small screen in a supporting role in 2010 show “Rakt Sambandh”. The same year she was cast as Anandi in “Balika Vadhu”. Three years later she quit the show. Pratyusha then participated in “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” and controversial reality show “Bigg Boss 7”, where she met Kamya Punjabi.
