Her last few social media posts hint at mental agony she was going through. In her last Instagram story, Preksha wrote,‘सबसे बुरा होता है सपनो का मर जाना’ (the worst thing is the death of your dreams).

We heard, she also left behind a suicide note but didn’t mention the reason behind taking such an extreme step. A copy of her suicide note has now surfaced and it speaks of her pain and anguish. Not blaming any person for her death, Preksha had written, "Mere toote huye sapno ne mere confidence ka dam tod diya hai, main mare huye sapnon ke saath nahi jee sakti. Iss negativity ke saath rehna mushkil hai. Pichle ek saal se maine bohot koshish ki. Ab mein thak gayi hoon."

This is the second instance of a TV actor committing suicide in the wake of the countrywide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On May 15, actor Manmeet Grewal, who worked on shows like “Aadat Se Majboor” and “Kuldeepak”, committed suicide after struggling with dwindling finances
