TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee who committed suicide last year on April 1, has been in news ever since then and now days before the first death anniversary.
Few days ago, Pratyusha’s close friend, actress Kamya Punjabi announced that she made a short film ‘Hum Kuchh Keh Naa Sakey’ featuring her late friend Pratyusha Banerjee which she will release on her first death anniversary.
The trailer of the film also get released. The film, which features Pratyusha in the lead, bears an uncanny resemblance to her real life.
Well, now Pratyusha’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh lashes out at Kamya saying that she is using a dead person’s name only for the publicity and money.
According to a report in Mid Day, Rahul said: “They say they shot the film one-and-a-half months before she passed away. Pratyusha never told me about a shoot. I have her handwritten diary in which she wrote her daily schedule. There is no mention of this film. I would like to know the exact dates and location of the film’s shoot.”
Calling it bogus and fraud, Rahul Raj Singh further added, “This is nothing but an attempt to make money in a dead person’s name. How can this woman continue to use Pratyusha’s name to get publicity? Only I know what her thoughts and feelings were. She was planning a big birthday party for me when she was snatched away from me.”
A year has passed since Pratyusha’s death, but Rahul claims to be still grieving as though the tragedy happened yesterday. “I start crying suddenly for no reason. I had fallen in love with her. And now when I’ve lost her I cannot bear to see her name being used cheaply by people whom she hardly met.”
Rahul is all set write a book on Pratyusha. “It’s an idea that I’ve been living with for some time now. It came to me after I found a diary written by her in my house. Through that diary I got to know her even better. I want to write my book on the Pratyusha that only I knew, and the girl I’d have known if she had only lived longer.”
