The police said that Bairagi jumped off a building in Jankalyan Nagar locality in Malwani area of Malad. A suicide note has been recovered which points to depression due to personal issues. He is survived by his wife and their 10-year-old child. While it was initially suspected that he might have lost his balance and fallen off the building, the suicide note found at his residence confirmed the tragedy. “Bairagi played Holi with his friends and family members and returned home around 4.30 pm. After that, he also uploaded pictures with his loved ones on social media,” the police tells Outlook India.

According to Gul Khan, the producer of the show, “Sanjay was an efficient worker and was controlling the entire production work. He wasn’t directly reporting to me hence I wouldn’t know the cause of death. We (the team) went to the funeral yesterday and have still not recovered from what we saw,” Khan tells Spotboye.

Ishqbaaz is a popular Star Plus TV show based on the story of three brothers of a business family, with different outlooks towards life.
