VJ Chitra Kamaraj, or fondly known as Chithu, has left a void in all her fans' hearts with her sudden demise. Chithu was found hanging in a hotel at Chennai early morning Wednesday (9 Dec). Her husband Hemanth was staying with her during the incident.

Police confirmed the cause of death as suicide after the postmortem procedure and Chithu's mortal remains were cremated on Thursday (10 Dec).

It's believed that Hemanth's possessiveness and Chithu's mother's insistence on leaving him made Chithu depressed and led to the drastic step of taking her own life. Some news media reported that Hemanth was accused of alcoholism and known to trouble Chithu during her serial shoots especially during intimate scenes.

Following her death, news of serial actresses Gayathri Yuvraaj or Sharanya possibly replacing Chithu as Mullai have been making rounds and fans are not happy about it. They are requesting the Pandian Stores team to kill off the Mullai character as no one can replace Chithu.

Even Sharanya posted an Instagram story claiming that she will never act as Mullai since no one can justify the role as much as Chithu did.

Well, currently the serial is revolving around Meena's story. Guess we'll have to wait and watch how Pandian Stores will make up for the loss of their beloved artist.
