Like Bollywood celebs, television actors also have a huge fan following. Some have achieved a lot in their career, while there are some who failed to climb the ladder of success. Both the industries look glamorous from outside, but there are some actors who are not as happy as they look. Deep inside, they go through depression and bad phases and finally they end their lives.
In the television industry, there are many such celebs who left for the heavenly abode at a very young age by committing suicide.
