New Delhi: Behind the glitter of Bollywood's marquee is a world of depression found too often among stars, mostly actresses, who, when coming to the brink, opt to take their own lives.
Guru Dutt was the first among Bollywood stars who committed suicide due to a combination of excessive alcohol and sleeping pills on October 10, 1964. He had a raging love affair with Waheeda Rehman and a running quarrel with his wife Geeta Dutt. Before his suicide, Guru Dutt reportedly wanted to meet his children, but was not allowed to. The famed director ended his life.
