Actor Kunal Singh committed suicide at his residence in Oshiwara in suburban Mumbai on Thursday morning. He starred in the Hindi film, Dil Hi Dil Main, opposite Sonali Bendre [Images].

The 31-year-old actor had also starred in some Bhojpuri and South Indian films. He had recently switched over to film production and was working on a Hindi project.

The Oshiwara police stated that he was found hanging from a ceiling fan at about 1:30 am and are investigating the case. No suicide note has been found near his body. The reason behind the actor taking the extreme step is yet to be ascertained, a senior police officer from the Oshiwara police station said.

Singh is survived by his wife, and two daughters, who had left for their hometown, Ahmednagar, only two days ago.

He was staying with Lavannya, an upcoming actress. She was the first to see his body. She informed the building watchman, who then called the police.
