The police made the discovery at her home today, April 1, 2016, in Mumbai Goregaon, even as Bollywood has been thrown into mourning.

Banerjee who was made popular for her roles in TV series such as "Balika Vadhu","Bigg Boss 7",''Sasural Simar Ka" amongst others, had reportedly been rushed to the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Andheri before being declared dead upon arrival.

Mumbai police spokesperson, Dhananjay Kulkarni, while confirming the news said that the hospital has reportedly sent a report on the actress' death.

The news reports reveal that the police are currently investigating the probable causes behind Banerjee's suicide, although some 'personal reasons' are said to have been behind the suicide.

Actor Dolly Bindra, has reportedly revealed that no one from the film industry believes that Banerjee had actually taken her own life.

Shocked colleagues, apart from Bindra including Sara Khan, Jay Bhanushali, Meghna Naidu, Sachin Shroff have reportedly been spotted outside the accident and emergency ward of the hospital.

May her soul rest in peace.
