Chennai: Popular Tamil television actor Sai Prashanth has committed at his Valasarawakkam residence in Chennai on Sunday, allegedly by drinking poison, police said.
“The reason behind the suicide is not clear. We think it could be loneliness,” police said, adding that the 30-year-old actor’s body has been taken to Kilpauk Medical College for post-mortem.
After divorcing his first wife, Prashanth re-married three months ago. Prashanth’s parents, who are based in Hosur, were informed of his death. His mother Lalitha S Subash is a former vice-president of the state BJP.
Known for working in serials such as ‘Annamalai’, ‘Selvi’ and ‘Arasi’, he had also starred in a few Tamil films such as “Neram”, “Thegidi” and “Vadacurry”.
Prashanth started off his career as a video jockey and hosted popular show, Dil Dil Manadhil. He has also participated in many reality shows including 'Jodi No 1', a popular dance reality show among others.
