A prominent Bollywood dancer and choreographer Abhijeet Shinde, who had been working in the film industry since quite sometime now, has committed suicide.
Abhijeet, 32, was reportedly found dead at his Bhandup (Mumbai) residence at 06:30 am.
The reports also add that Abhijeet had danced alongside actors, including Ranveer Singh, Ajay Devgn and Ranbir Kapoor among others.
A picture of the deceased with the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actor has gone viral on the internet ever since the news about his demise surfaced.
Reportedly, Abhijeet Shinde was suffering from depression.
One of the reasons why he must have taken such a grave step could be that his wife left him three months ago and was not allowing him to meet their two-year-old daughter.
Abhijeet has left behind a suicide note, asking the bank to make his daughter the beneficiary of his account.
While speaking with Mumbai Mirror on this, the police confirmed, “Shinde’s wife had been living at her mother’s place since the past three months. She was not allowing Shinde to meet their two-year-old daughter, which upset him badly. He had been depressed over the past few days. We registered an accidental death report and handed over the body to the deceased’s family members after conducting a postmortem.”
Abhijeet’s neighbour had informed the police about the incident. Abhijeet had left his residence’s door open, through which neighbours entered upon suspicion. They found the dancer hanging from the ceiling fan and rushed him to the nearest hospital, where he was announced dead on arrival.
