“We received the tragic news yesterday evening that Ms. Pandey had ended her life,” said police inspector Rajesh Kumar. “Her sister discovered her hanging body around 3:30 pm and she was rushed to the hospital but declared dead on arrival.”

Pandey married animation engineer Chandramani Jhangad in 2022. While an up-and-coming talent, she acted in several Hindi films, web series, and television shows including the popular Pratishodh.

Mental health advocates have urged the entertainment community to have more open conversations about depression and suicidal thoughts among artists. Pandey’s devastating passing at such a young age has reignited calls for better support systems.
