Pappu Lad, who was also a film producer, was found to have hanged himself inside the Landancha Ganpati temple on MS Ali Road on Wednesday morning, a police official said.
The suicide note found on the spot said that he was ending life as he was fed up with harassment by a builder.

Mr Lad had produced Marathi films under the banner of LG Production.
