Marathi actor Aashutosh Bhakre, who was married to Marathi actor Mayuri Deshmukh, allegedly died by suicide on Wednesday. He was 32.

Aashutosh Bhakre reportedly hanged himself at his home in Nanded town in the Marathwada region, a police official told PTI on Wednesday. The incident came to light Wednesday afternoon when Bhakre (32) was found hanging by his parents in his flat in the Ganesh Nagar area of the town in central Maharashtra, the official said.

Aashutosh had acted in Marathi films such as Bhakar and Ichar Tharla Pakka. Mayuri had shot to fame after her role in Marathi serial Khulta Kali Khulena. She has also worked in 31 Diwas.

The reason behind the actor’s suicide was not yet known, the police official said. He was reportedly suffering from depression since the last few days and had recently shared a video on social media in which he analysed why a person commits suicide, the official said.
