I spoke to Vaishali about her ex but she told me not to worry and that she would handle the situation: Vikas Sethi’s wife Jhanvi

TV actress Vaishali Takkar was found dead at her residence in her hometown Indore on Sunday. The 29-year-old died by suicide and was found hanging at her home. The police recovered a suicide note. Now, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Moti ur Rehman told ANI, “Rahul was Vaishali’s neighbour and the suicide note indicates that he used to harass Vaishali, because of which she took such an extreme step. She was about to get married to another man and Rahul troubled her for that. The police are currently investigating the case.” ACP Rehman also stated that Rahul is currently not at his residence and has fled after locking his house.

On Sunday evening, in an exclusive conversation with us, Vikas Sethi and his wife, Jhanvi, told us about their conversation with Vaishali. They said that Vaishali had promised to meet them soon, as she was planning to come to Mumbai for her wedding shopping. She was set to tie the knot with Mitesh, a software engineer based out of California.

Jhanvi and Vaishali knew each other for almost a decade. The actress lived with Jhanvi at her residence for a few years after she moved to Mumbai to pursue a career in acting. Jhanvi says, “We were like sisters and would share everything with each other. In fact, she was instrumental in introducing me to Vikas, who was her co-actor in Sasural Simar Ka. Vaishali planned everything and took care of all the arrangements during our wedding.”

Vikas shares that Vaishali celebrated his birthday before leaving for Indore. “She has been a part of every celebration, big or small. She was the first one to hold our kids. She partied with us a week before May 12 to celebrate my birthday in advance, as she was leaving for her hometown, Indore. She was the life of every party. She was jovial and a lot of fun. There was never a dull moment with her,” he says.

The actress has left a suicide note. Talking about it Jhanvi says, “I guess she was troubled because of her ex. She had spoken to me about it, and I told her that we would deal with it and sort it out. However, she told me not to worry and that she would handle the situation. I am at a loss for words. She was a loving girl and a beautiful soul.”
