Varsha, who sang for some Hindi and Marathi films besides appearing in concerts with her mother, reportedly tried to end her life in 1998 and 2008. She was the second of Bhosle's three children with first husband Ganpatrao Bhosle. Varsha, who also wrote for magazine and web portals, was married to a sports writer but the marriage ended in 1998. Bhosle, who was in Singapore, was rushing back home, sources close to the family said.
