Popular Tamil TV actor Sai Prashanth committed suicide at his residence in Chennai, police said, adding he had left a suicide note saying no one must be blamed for his death.

Prashanth is said to have mixed poison in his drink and consumed it on Sunday, leading to his death. He was 30.

Police said the reason behind Prashanth’s suicide could be loneliness and depression.

In his suicide note, released by the police on Monday, Prashanth said his second wife Sujitha or for that no one else should be blamed for his decision.

He also said that his death would not create any problems for Sujitha and that his parents would return all her jewellery along with Rs.500,000.

After divorcing his first wife, Prashanth remarried three months ago.

In the suicide note, the actor also urged his wife to give up her anger and said he had been a good father to his daughter Rakshitha. He also wrote that he was a ‘problem’ for himself.

In his letter, Prashanth thanked actress Radikaa Sarathkumar, with whom he worked in serials, and her company Radaan for their support.

Radikaa expressed shock over Prashant’s death. “So shocked and saddened to hear of actor Sai Prashanth’s death. What is it about life that you give up at this age?? Sad. Just finished work, but mind is disturbed,” she tweeted.

Known for working in serials such as ‘Annamalai’, ‘Selvi’ and ‘Arasi’, Prashant also starred in Tamil films like ‘Neram’, ‘Thegidi’ and ‘Vadacurry’.

Prashanth started his career as a video jockey and hosted a popular show, ‘Dil Dil Manadhil’.

His last day of shoot was on the sets of Radaan’s Tamil serial “Thamarai” on March 10. He is survived by his parents, his second wife and a daughter.

    There is one thing Hindus are good at. It is killing themselves. Temple premises in many places does not rent a room for a single person because they are afraid the person will commit suicide.

      Dont say that. Emotional and financial hurt coupled together can drive one to suicide. Pls have sympathy for him. I shall pray God to give him moksha.

                      This happens when there is no aim in life. Eat,Drink,sleep and that's it. India Philosophy the Vedanta ( I don't call it hindu, bcz it belongs to all the beings) says and it appears to be true also, the aim of human is to realize the divinity in self. As swami Vivekananda also said it. All the problems starts appearing as smaller ones and for the stuff we keep fighting for also appear pity. Sad that Purohits have made Vedanta as Hindu oriented and Brahmin based.

                                One who reads the bagavath gita, puranas, vedanta texts, upanishads properly and learns the essence out of it can conquer the world and get rid of any problems in life and doesnt need a psychiartist and psychologist

                                  There is nothing beyond in modern science or technology or medical science that is in upanishads and puranas. This kind of intolerance and suicide attepmts are occuring because of our life style
