Comedian Tirthanand Rao Attempts Suicide Again, Livestreams On Facebook
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Actor-comedian Tirthanand Rao, who has worked with television star Kapil Sharma in ‘Comedy Circus Ke Ajoobe’, attempted suicide by drinking poison during a Facebook live through his official Facebook page.
He alleged that a woman is responsible for his current state. He claimed during the live session that he was in a “live-in” with the woman in question, but she “emotionally blackmailed” him. He also claimed that the woman pushed him into debt as she “extorted” money from him.
He said in the live video: “I am in debt of Rs 3-4 lakh because of this woman. I have known her since October last year. She had filed a police complaint against me in Bhayandar (a western suburb of Mumbai) and I didn’t even know for what reason. Then she would also call me and say she wanted to meet.”
As he shared all that he was going through, he took out a bottle of insect repellant and drank it after pouring it into a glass. His friends who saw him taking the extreme step, rushed to his house and found him unconscious. They called the police, and the actor was rushed to the hospital.
Tirthanand attempted suicide earlier as well in a similar fashion – in December 2021, when he went live on Facebook. He had called up his assistant and told him that he was taking this drastic step in life due to several reasons.
