Telugu serial actor Chandrakanth committed suicide at his home in Alkapur, just days after the tragic passing of his best friend and costar Pavithra Jayaram. According to the actor’s father, Chandrakanth was battling depression right from the day of Pavithra’s death. On Friday, the family members were alerted when Chadnarakanth didn’t respond to their phone calls, and they barged into his room to see the actor lying dead. A suicide note has also been recovered from the room. The police have registered a case of unnatural death and started an investigation.

According to insiders within the industry, both of them were in love for a long time. There are also rumours suggesting that Chandrakanth had secretly married Pavithra. Both the actors were cast in the hit serial ‘Trinayani’.

It was on May 12 that Pavithra tragically lost her life after the car she was travelling rammed into a bus in Hyderabad. At the time of the accident, Pavitra was accompanied by her sister, Apeksha, her driver Srikant, and also Chandrakanth.

The death left the industry in a shock, but it mentally crippled Chandrakanth. The actor started putting grieving Instagram posts, as a homage to his best friend. In his final post, he wrote, "My Pavi is no more, pls ra come back plsss. “Papa, this is the last picture we took together. I can’t bear being without you. Just call me ‘mama’ once please @pavithrajayaram_chandar. Pls come back Pavi.”

The multiple deaths have brought the Telungu serial industry to a standstill.
