It is shocking to know that someone has taken such a big step of ending their life because of financial issues. Tamil producer-director B Ashok Kumar took this step at his residency on Tuesday. It came as a shock to us as his suicide note, addressed to Sasikumar, his relative and also another director from the Tamil industry, blaming a financier.
As per a report, B Ashok Kumar’s production company was taking loans from a financier who charged them of excessive interest rates. In the letter, he shared that he regrets taking loans from this financier. It mentioned that the financier was harassing and threatening him. The financier further scared him with his political connections.
Ashok Kumar’s body has been sent to Government Royapettah Hospital for postmortem. The case has been charged against the blamed financier. If he is proved to be responsible, he will be charged for it. But it is really sad to see the condition of film producers who are stuck in this web of film financiers who charge such interest rates. No support from bank financing is one big reason behind such financiers using the situation in their favor.
We hope that no producer or director faces such trouble related to finance in future and takes such a big step by ending their life. May Ashok Kumar’s soul rest in peace!
