death has cast a pall of gloom across India’s television industry.

Takkar was born on July 15, 1993 in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore. She was interested
in acting from an early age. Media reports say Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was her

Takkar’s death has once again cast a spotlight on the travails of India’s entertainment
industry, as did Rajput’s back in 2020. Vaishali Takkar was engaged to be
married to a Kenyan dental surgeon named Abhinandan Singh. However, they broke up
later and the anticipated marriage was called off.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Vaishali Takkar had said that she had cried for
two days because of the death of her close friend. When there was wide media
suspicion surrounding the circumstances of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Takkar
told Spotboye: “After people started saying that he was murdered, look at the
marks on his body and all, I all started seeing those pics and found something
is fishy. Initially, movie mafia was alleged for all this but now Rhea’s
(reference to Rhea Chakraborty) is also coming out.”

Asked if
she thought Rhea Chakraborty was responsible for Sushant Singh Rajput’s death,
Vaishali Takkar had said: “I feel it’s a teamwork. It’s not just one person who
has done this. I don’t know how long the trail is but definitely there are more
people involved. I also think that the real culprits are hiding behind Rhea.
She is definitely responsible for pushing him at the edge, that people are
easily believing that he committed suicide (sic).”
