‘Ishqbaaz’ supervising producer commits suicide, jumps off from 16th floor


It is shocking to learn that the supervising producer of ‘Ishqbaaz’ Sanjay Bairagi committed suicide by jumping off from 16th floor of building in Silicon Park, Jankalyan Nagar, Malad West and died on the spot. It was early speculated that Sanjay lost balance and fell off from the building but later during investigation police found suicide note.

The police official said that Bairagi had returned home after playing Holi around 4.30 pm on Friday and at around 6:30 pm, he ended his life. After returning home from Holi celebration, he had even uploaded pictures of holi on Facebook. But sadly, after two hours, he jumped from the balcony of his bedroom. He was rushed to the nearby hospital and on arrival he was declared dead.

Sanjay Bairagi is survived by his wife and two children. From his suicide note, it was financial crisis and depression forced Sanjay to take this extreme step.

Ishqbaaz's producer Gul Khan told, "Sanjay was an efficient worker and was controlling the entire production work. He wasn't directly reporting to me hence I wouldn't know the cause of death. We (the team) went to the funeral yesterday and have still not recovered from what we saw."

Actress Surbhi Chandna, refused to comment of the issue, she hurriedly said, “Can we talk about this later? I have to go for the shot.”

Nakuul Mehta, who plays Shivaay Singh Oberoi on the show, too refused talk about the mishap and simply said, “It’s better that I don’t say anything and you ask Gul Khan- the producer of the show.”

May his soul rest in peace!
