Pratyusha Banerjee's final bow: Kamya Punjabi to release short film on her death anniversary
TV actress Kamya Punjabi will release a short film Hum Keh Naa Sakey on Pratyusha Banerjee's first death anniversary on 1 April. This was the last project that the 23-year-old actress shot before she hanged herself to death in her Oshiwara home.
This tribute by Kamya will feature the late Balika Vadhu actress in the lead role, which was apparently her last project before hanging herself to death in her Oshiwara home last year. Punjabi told Bombay Times: "Though a work of fiction, it will seem quite similar to what Pratyusha must have gone through. She will be seen heartbroken, resorting to vices like drinking and smoking."

Banerjee reportedly committed suicide because of heartbreak and depression. Punjabi was also quoted saying that the short film will interlink Banerjee's reel and real lives.
"As a narrator, I will interlink Pratyusha's reel and real lives, and question viewers on why people change in love and choose to remain silent sufferers. Pratyusha didn't use glycerine while shooting the emotional scenes. I too was nursing heartbreak at that time," she said.
The two became friends because of the time they spent together in Big Boss. Punjabi also remarked how she wished she had taken time out to talk to her late friend about her problems and maybe prevented her from taking her life.
