Nahar Left a Tragic Suicide Note & Video
According to Republic World, Nahar posted a “suicide note” on Facebook, along with a nine-minute video. It’s now deleted, and it was in the Hindi language.
The site says the actor said he was “frustrated” with constant fights with his wife and made other claims against both her and his mother-in-law.
The site quoted him as saying, “I would’ve died by suicide a long time ago but I chose to give myself the time and hope that things would get better, but they didn’t. I now have nowhere to go. I don’t know what awaits me after I take this step, but I’ve been through hell in this life.”
Get India News further quotes the video as saying, “You must have seen me in many films. I played the character of Chhotu Bhaiya in MS Dhoni. Today, the purpose is to make this video. The purpose is that many problems are going on in our lives. I am not mentally stable. The reason for this is my wife Kanchan Sharma. I have been going through the trauma for a year and a half. I have repeatedly explained this to my wife. 365 days fight. Talk every day about suicide. She says I will die and will trap you.”
The India Times reprinted the note, although it’s no longer available on his page. “In the note, he stated that he was going to die by suicide. He also added that no one from his family should be made responsible for his actions. The actor said that he has been going through a lot of problems, personal as well as professional,” the site noted.
