Mumbai:

Bhojpuri film actress Anupama Pathak allegedly killed herself at her Mumbai home, police said on Friday.

Anupama Pathak, 40, was found hanging at her rented flat in Mira Road area of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region on Sunday, police said. Ms Pathak, who was from Bihar, was seen in several Bhojpuri films and TV shows.

A day before her death, she had shared a Facebook video and said that she felt cheated and was unable able to trust anyone. In the video, she spoke about not having friends who can be of help.

She allegedly killed herself when her husband was not at home, police said, adding that a suicide note has been found.

A police official said she felt cheated as a friend did not return her two-wheeler. She was also upset as she was out of money and work during the coronavirus lockdown.

"Bye bye, Good night" was her last Facebook post, the
official said. A case has been filed under section 306 of the Indian Penal Code or IPC, he said.

Anupama Pathak's death comes nearly two months after the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput sparked a debate on mental health. The 34-year-old was found hanging at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14.

On June 9, Sushant Singh Rajput's former manager Disha Salian jumped from a high-rise building. On May 15, TV actor Manmeet Grewal was found dead at his Mumbai home. 

Television actor Samir Sharma, 44, best known for his roles in "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" and "Left Right Left", was on Wednesday found dead at his home in suburban Malad where he lived alone.
