The people of Tamil Nadu were taken aback after hearing about the unexpected demise of popular television serial actress, Chitra (a) Chithu VJ. She was 28 years old. Chithu, who died by suicide, was found hanging in a hotel room during the early hours of Wednesday (December 9) morning. The much-loved actress took part in an upcoming program of Vijay TV and the shooting of the program happened at EVP Film Studios. Since the shooting got over only at 2.30 AM at midnight, Chithu decided to stay for the night at a nearby private hotel. The shooting was supposed to continue for today as well. However, it looks like things have not been quite good on Chithu's personal front.

A few months before, she had got engaged to an entrepreneur named Hemanth and the engagement pictures/videos went viral on social media. The couple was supposed to get married in a grand event in February 2021. Unfortunately, she decided to take her own life. The fans are yet to accept the reality and it is going to take quite some time to understand the situation. Chithu's father Kamaraj has filed a complaint with the Nazarathpettai Police, demanding an inquiry into his daughter's death. Chithu's mother has claimed that there is a mystery in her daughter's death, adding that she is not a person who would commit suicide.

The Police officials are currently investigating the case and more details are awaited. Following Chitra's untimely demise, her fans have been sharing throwback videos of her and some of those videos have made everyone feel sad and heartbroken. Reels is one of the newly introduced features on Instagram and Chithu, who is very active on social media, has done several Reels videos.

In one such Reels video, she is seen imitating a small sequence from Virumaandi where Kamal Haasan asks Abhirami what she prayed for to God. She'd reply saying that she prayed for a lifetime with him. The fans, seeing Chithu enact this scene, are heartbroken since the reality has become quite different. Chithu was known by her friends and well-wishers as someone who always enjoyed life and was full of fun vibes and this tragic incident has come as a shocker for them. The fans are re-sharing this short reels video of Chithu on Instagram and Twitter, expressing their sadness. Let us pray for the departed soul to rest in peace.
