Well-known Bhojpuri actress and model Anjali Shrivastava was found dead at her Andheri west residence, police said here on Monday. According to police, Anjali's family members from Allahabad had been trying to call her since Sunday night, but she did not respond on her mobile.
Worried about her safety, the family contacted her landlord, who called the police and they entered her home on the fifth floor in Parimal Society on Juhu Road with a duplicate key on Monday afternoon.
They found the 29-year-old actress hanging from the ceiling fan from a sari, presumably having committed suicide. Police searched her residence but did not find any suicide note or anything suspicious.
