Kannada actor and fitness trainer Susheel Gowda has reportedly committed suicide in his hometown in Karnataka. The news of Susheel Gowda committing suicide comes a few days after Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide.
Confirming the news of Susheel Gowda passing away by suicide, K Parashuram, Mandya Superintendent of Police told The Indian Express, “Susheel Gowda took his own life in his house located in Induvalu, Mandya. His mortal remains have been handed over to the family after post-mortem. An investigation is now underway.”
The Kannada actor is known for his roles in Kannada soap opera Anthapura. Besides having played roles in multiple movies, he was also a known fitness trainer.
The reasons why Susheel ended his life is yet to be ascertained. His death has come as a huge shock to his co-stars, well-wishers and friends. His fans and several actors took to social media to offer their condolences.
According to reports, Susheel Gowda was supposed to make his debut in Kannada film industry with Salaga. He has reportedly played an important role in upcoming Kannada movie Salaga, which marks Duniya Vijay’s directorial debut.
Vijay wrote a lengthy note on Susheel, remembering that he did a good job playing a young police officer in Salaga. The actor said he thought Susheel would become a top hero soon in Kannada cinema while regretting that he died before the film’s release.
“I only know him from shooting for 30 days for the film. And his passing gives him so much pain. Imagine the pain of his parents, who brought him up for 30 years,” he said.
Duniya Vijay also said that suicide was not an answer to all problems. “I don’t think such deaths will stop here this year. People are losing hope and livelihood due to coronavirus pandemic. We should stay strong to defeat this crisis,” he added.
“Susheel, don’t know what u were going through, but u had a future. ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ದಿನಗಳಿಗಾಗಿ ಕಾಯಬೇಕಿತ್ತು (you should have waited for good days). #RIP (sic),” tweeted actor Dhananjaya, who shared screen space with Susheel in Salaga.
