Days after the death of Tamil actress-host Chitra in Chennai, her husband Hemnath has been arrested for allegedly abetting her suicide. Her mother had accused him of physically abusing Chitra.
Chitra, 29, was found dead at a hotel on December 9. The couple got married a few months ago. According to a report, Hemanth was angry with Chitra for some of her intimate scenes in a serial. “Hemnath did not like a scene she had enacted on TV. On the day she died, he had also pushed her,”sources quoted Assistant Commissioner of Police Sudarshan as saying.
Chitra had risen to fame with her role as Mullai Kathiravan on the soap opera Pandian Stores, which first aired in October 2018. Chitra had also become popular as the host of multiple TV shows on various channels such as Makkal TV, Jaya TV and Zee Tamizh.
