Tunisha Sharma, who was playing the lead role in Ali Baba: Daastan-E-Kabul, allegedly died by suicide on the set of her TV show. As per sources on the set, Tunisha went to the washroom during the tea break. When she did not come back after a long time, people went to check and found her dead. She was rushed to the hospital where she was declared brought dead.

Tunisha Sharma’s mother Vanita Sharma on Sunday filed a complaint against her Ali Baba co-star Sheezan M Khan. In a media statement, Vanita shared that Sheezan cheated on Tunisha. “First, he had a relationship with her saying that he will marry her, and later broke up with her. He was already involved with another woman and yet got into a relationship with Tunisha, and used her for three to four months. He should be punished for that,” she said.

Following the complaint, Sheezan was arrested on charges of abetment of suicide and sent to four-day police custody by Vasai court on Sunday. The last rites and cremation are today at Mira Road from her residence. As Tunisha Sharma’s family prepared for her last rites, colleagues from the industry arrived to pay their last respect. Actors Avneet Kaur, Reem Shaikh, Kanwar Dhillon, Deepika Singh, Vishal Jethwa, Ashnoor Kaur, and Shivin Narang were spotted at Tunisha’s home.
