Pratyusha Banerjee became a household name after the thunderous success of the Colors TV daily soap Balika Vadhu. As a result when news of her committing suicide was out, not just her industry folks but the entire nation was under shock. Today, as her family mourns their loss on the actresses fourth death anniversary, her co-star Shashank Vyas has gotten all emotional.
Taking to his social media handle Shashank had posted a picture of Pratyusha with a heart felt caption that read, “Those we love don’t go away they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear.”
Despite all these years, fans still dearly miss the pair of Jagya and Anandi on screen. Meanwhile opening up about the bond that he shared with Pratyusha, Shashank revealed that one thing he dearly regrets is not being connected with Pratyusha during her last years.
Reminiscing their old days, Vyas has been quoted by TOI saying, “I wish I was in touch with her when she took such a drastic step. If we would have continued talking and not lost touch I could have talked to her and found a solution. We always discussed problems with each other and I had told her numerous times that no problem is bigger than you or no emotion is bigger than your life. I always regret that I was not in touch with her during her last days. I miss her a lot. She was my first heroine, my first co-star. We auditioned for the role together. I still remember since we had to work together and prepare our line we went to a coffee shop together, to have a better understanding. There are so many precious memories with her. I have learnt a lot from her.”
While Pratyusha committed suicide, her friends and family often accused her former boy friend Rahul Raj Singh have having a vital role in the actress’ death.
