Television actor Susheel Gowda died by suicide in his home town Mandya. The actor killed himself on July 8 by hanging himself at a friend's house. The exact reason for suicide hasn't been revealed yet. The news has come as a shock to many celebrities. The actor was 32 years of age and had acted in TV shows. He played a role in serial Anthapura and was looking forward to establishing himself in the Kannada Film Industry. Other than an actor, he was also a fitness trainer.
"Though Gowda's body was found hanging in the day in his friend's house at Kiragandur village near Mandya, his death might have occurred on Monday. The body has been sent for autopsy to ascertain the cause of his death," Mandya Deputy Superintendent of Police L. Navin Kumarsaid.
When Gowda's parents lodged a missing complaint of their son on Monday, the district police launched a search for him and alerted all police stations across the southern state to trace him as his mobile handset was switched off. "When Gowda's photo in the complaint matched with his face, we have asked his parents to identify and confirm that he was their son," Kumar said. A case of homicide was registered under section 174 of the CrPC. Gowda was the only son to his parents and was a bachelor.
"Gowda joined the Kannada television serials in 2015 and acted in one or two Kannada films also. As he did not get many opportunities, we are told, of late he was under depression," said Kumar.
Shocked by the news of Susheel Gowda's death, Duniya Vijay wrote on Facebook (translated), "When I first saw him I thought he is a hero material. Even before the movie got released he has left us too soon. Whatever may be the problem suicide is not the answer. I think the series of deaths will not end this year. It is not only because of Coronavirus people fear, people are losing faith because they don’t have job which can give them the money to lead a life. It is high time to stay stronger to overcome the crisis."
Susheel Gowda has played the role of a cop in the upcoming film Salaga. It stars Duniya Vijay in the leading role.
Susheel's co-star Amita Ranganath was quoted as saying by TOI, "I got the news from my friend. I still can’t believe that he is no more. He was such a sweet and soft hearted person who never loses his cool. It’s been very sad to know that he has left us so early. He had the talent to achieve more in the entertainment industry.” Director of the serial Anthpura, Aravind Koushik on his face book page posted "Sad news I heard .
