Death comes for everyone at some point in time, however, when it makes an unexpected visit, the news becomes a tough pill to swallow. That's precisely how the entertainment industry feels about Kushal Punjabi's untimely demise this morning. A couple of hours ago, popularTV actor, Karanvir Bohra, took to Twitter to share the sad news. He posted a series of pictures of Kushal and wrote an emotional note for him.
Kushal Punjabi passed away at a young age of 37. The cause of his death remains unknown. However, a few media reports allege that the actor committed suicide. According to reports, his body was found hanging at his residence at night. The police have also found a suicide note at his residence. A few tweets also claim that this was an intentional move and there's a hidden clue hinting at his suicide in his Twitter bio too.
Kushal Punjabi made a successful career for himself as a model, dancer, and actor. In the past two decades, he has worked in various films and TV shows such as A Mouthful of Sky, Teri Meri Love Stories, Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal, Salaam-e-Ishq, Lakshya, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa and Aasman Se Aage. Also known as a fitness enthusiast, the actor's last post was a picture of him with his three-year-old son that was posted three days ago.
While some have taken to social media to express their grief, the rest are upset with the fact that the actor took such a step.

A fit, seemingly happy actor dad has committed suicide. Kushal Punjabi has passed away by hanging himself. Yet another reminder of how fragile mental health is. NEVER,ever joke about it or blackmail someone, you might cost them their life.
