Following her death, Bhattacharjee accused Gagan Gabru of physically and mentally harassing the late actress. She posted multiple videos in which she made a shocking revelation about Bhatnagar’s husband. “She had just decided to live independently, to not fall into anyone’s trap. I feel that God wasn’t able to see her suffering,” she stated.

She further said, “I’m making this video because I have to talk about the mental stress and physical abuse that she had to suffer, and the man who is responsible for it.” She continued, “I am talking about you, Gagan Gabru. You posted that Divya’s mother and brother were against your relationship and that they were getting publicity because of you. Who are you? You are nothing. You came here and begged for her acceptance. I cut off ties with her for four years because of you. Who are you to give publicity, I’ll give you publicity now.”
