Popular television actor Kushal Punjabi, last seen in Ishq Mein Marjawan passes away on December 26. He allegedly committed suicide at his home at the age of 37.
A suicide note was also recovered by the Bandra police from the spot wherein Kushal had written that ‘no one should be blamed for his act.’ The news of his death left the entire nation in shock.
It was reported that Kushal’s failed marriage with Audrey Dolhen was the reason behind him taking the shocking step.
Well now, his wife Audrey Dolhen has come out and spoken to an entertainment website after being blamed for his death.
She said, “We had problems in our marriage but it was not a failed marriage. I never stopped Kian from talking to his father Kushal. It was Kushal who was not serious about his family.”

“I invited him to settle down in Shanghai but he was least interested. In fact, it was me who was looking after his expenses. Kian lost interest in his father because of lack of seriousness. I tried my best to save my relationship with Kushal,” she added.
Dolhen is currently working as CCO in CMA CGM China Shipping Company.
Why was she residing in Shanghai and not in India? “I was on contract with my company and Kushal was not able to understand this. He wanted me to shift to London. It was not possible for me to quit my job. Kushal was a careless father who never bothered about his son’s future. I was at the receiving end in the marriage and not him. I was with our son Kian in France for Christmas holidays,” informed Dolhen.
“I don’t know why I am being blamed for his death, it was Kushal who failed in our relationship,” Dolhen added.
According to the portal, Kushal’s parents said that Dolhen harassed him no end and demanded a huge sum of money for a divorce. They said that she took away their three-year-old son Kian, which shattered Kushal and made him take his life.
Dolhen has been summoned by Mumbai Police in connection with Kushal’s suicide.
Kushal married Audrey Dolhen in November 2015.
