Actor Kushal Tandon, who was also seen in Bigg Boss 7 with Pratyusha, took to Twitter to express condolence.
Expressing shock TV personality VJ Andy said, “I first read that on Twitter and thought it was an April fool’s joke. Then I got a call from Tanisha who told me the same. Then my manager too confirmed It. I still cannot believe it. I am shocked. She was so full of life, and always seemed happy. The last time I had met here she was fine and seemed ok. I really don’t know how to react now.”
