Bhojpuri actress Anupama Pathak was found dead at her Dahisar flat in Mumbai on August 2. Based on the preliminary investigation, the 40-year-old has allegedly died by suicide and was found hanging at her suburban apartment. Reportedly, there was a suicide note indicating the cause of her death.

Pathak, who hailed from Patna, had shifted to Mumbai in search of work. A day before her death, she took to her (unverified) Facebook account and went live to talk about certain people and how they betrayed her trust, TOI reported. In the video, she said she felt cheated and was not able to trust anyone. “If you confide to someone that you are going through some problems and feel suicidal, that person, no matter how good a friend he or she is, will immediately ask you to keep them away from your problems so that they don’t get into trouble after you die,” Pathak said in Hindi in her August 1 Facebook live video.
