The Tamil TV industry and viewers got the shock of their lives today when news of VJ Chithra's untimely death surfaced on social media.

While many thought it to be fake news, Chithra or more commonly known as Chithu has indeed taken her own life at a hotel in Chennai after returning from a shoot.

Many wondered why Chithu decided to stay in a hotel. According to Indiaglitz, Chithu has been staying with fiancé Hemanth in the hotel since Dec 4th. It's now believed that she made the decision to avoid the non-stop arguments between Hemanth and her mother.

In a shocking turn of events, Hemanth is claiming that they were already legally married two months after their engagement and was planning a traditional wedding in January 2021.

Her father Kamaraj has lodged a police report demanding immediate investigation to find out the reason behind her suicide, while Chithu's mother suspects foul play in her death.

Chithu has always been bold and friendly. Her inspiring story of rising from nothing garnered her many loyal fans who loved Chithu for humility and authenticity. May her soul Rest in Peace.
