The news of Tunisha Sharma’s death rocked the television industry. The young actress, who was just 20 years old and would have turned 21 on January 4, ended her life on the sets of her TV show, Ali Baba: Daastan-E-Kabul. What’s even more shocking was the fact that she had made a social media post just a few hours before ending her life, and it was about not stopping.
Tunisha had posted a picture of herself just about five hours before her death. In her costume for Ali Baba: Daastan-E-Kabul, where she played the character of Shehzaadi Mariam. She can be seen holding the script of her show, and with her face half covered in her beautifully done hair. What is even more heartbreaking is the caption, which reads, “Those who are driven by their Passion Doesn’t stop.(sic)”
She had posted four days back as well. In the picture, the actress was smiling brightly and the caption read, “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough.(sic)” Here’s the post:
