40-year-old, Sanjay Bairagi, who was the supervising producer of the popular television show ‘Ishqbaaz’ committed suicide on Friday evening. He jumped off the 16th floor of a highrise in Malad. The reason that is being quoted for the same is Sanjay’s depression. He was undergoing depression due to issues on the personal front. The same has been mentioned in his suicide note.
Earlier, the police officials were taking the reason to be Sanjay’s loss of balance. However, everything got clear when a suicide note was found at his home. It is even more shocking as it was Holi and Bairagi played Holi with his friends and family. He came back home around 4.30 pm. He even uploaded pictures from the Holi party on his social media handles.
He didn’t blame anyone for his death. His note read, “It’s my fault. My family is suffering and I have financial troubles. No one should be held responsible.”
Gul Khan, who is the producer of the show on Sanjay’s demise said, “Sanjay was an efficient worker and was controlling the entire production work. He wasn’t directly reporting to me hence I wouldn’t know the cause of death. We (the team) went to the funeral yesterday and have still not recovered from what we saw.”
It has come as a big shock to the television industry. May his soul rest in peace!
