Monal commits suicide
actress Simran's sister Monal, who is also a fairly big name in the
Tamil film industry, committed suicide at her residence in Chennai.
The incident came as a rude shock to the Tamil film industry. Monal
made her film debut in 'Badri' (Tamil remake of Telugu Tammudu), which
was followed with 'Parvai ondrum pothum', 'Lovely' and 'Ilaya Thalapathi'.
She had won the Miss Bombay crown some time back. Monal recently made
her Hindi film debut in Tinu Verma's 'Maa Tujhe Salaam'. She did a special
song in Usha Kiron Movies 'Istam'. She worked for an unreleased Telugu
film 'Dadagiri' starring Suman and Krishna. The reasons behind the suicide
of this upcoming actress are not known yet.
