Veteran actress, Hema Malini has termed TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee's alleged suicide "senseless", saying the world admires a fighter not a "loser", who takes away his or her life.
The 24 year old former "Balika Vadhu" star, was found dead at her residence on April 1, in a suspected case of suicide due to stress in her relationship with boyfriend and actor, Rahul Raj Singh.
67 year old Malini believes a person should fight the adversities of life rather than giving up. "All these senseless suicides achieve nothing! Life is God's gift for us to live, not for us to take at will. We have no right to do that. One must learn to overcome all odds and emerge successful, not succumb under pressure and give up easily. The world admires a fighter not a loser," she posted on Twitter.
Slamming the media over its investigation and coverage of the TV star's demise, the actress added, "Just becomes food for the hungry media who chew on news like celebrity suicides, until the next sensational news happens. Then, it is forgotten."
