Asha Bhosle’s daughter Varsha cremated today

Asha Bhosle’s daughter Varsha Bhosle killed herself maliciously at her Peddar road-based residence Prabhu Kunj on Monday. She was 56. Varsha had a past history of depression and she was under medication. She shot herself to death with a pistol which was at the apartment in the name of her brother and Asha Bhosle’s son.

When Varsha shot herself to death, she was all alone in the house. Ashaji was in Singapore for a concert. Her aunt Lata Mangeshkar who also lives in the same apartment was also not in the house. Before this, Varsha tried to commit suicide twice. In 2008, she tried to kill herself by overdose of sleeping pills but she was saved by doctors.

After failed marriage with freelance sports journalist writer Hemant Kenkre, Varsha went into depression.

Alarm has been raised about her death when she did not open her door in the morning. The domestic help repeatedly knocked the door and rang the bell but there was no response. She then called the driver. Through some means, he saw that Varsha was lying on the floor of the drawing room and blood spilled all around.

Asha Bhosle who was in Singapore was informed that her daughter tried to commit suicide again. On thinking about her age and health condition, she was not informed about her daughter’s death. She reached Mumbai tomorrow and completely shattered to know about it. She reached around 11 pm.

The funeral of Varsha took place between 3-4 am at Chandanwadi crematorium in Marine Lines.
