India's Bhojpuri film actress Anupama Pathak allegedly committed suicide at her Mumbai residence.
The 40-year-old was found hanging at her rented flat in Mhada Colony on Mira Road area of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region on Sunday, local media reported citing police on Friday.
Hailing from Bihar, Anupama Pathak was seen in several Bhojpuri films and TV shows.
A day before her death, she shared a video on social media site Facebook, where the actress said that she felt cheated and was unable able to trust anyone. In the footage, she spoke about not having friends who can be of help.
Based on the preliminary investigation, police said that the actress died by suicide when her husband was not at home. 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.
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 Mumbai's Bandra residence on June 14.
