Television and Bhojpuri film actress Anupama Pathak, who committed suicide on 2nd August, was a cancer patient and had spoken about ending her life eight months back too. This revelation was made by B.N. Tiwari, president of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), who had interacted with Pathak as she was the elected representative of the Indian Film And Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA). Anupama had, in a Facebook post eight months back, mentioned that she wanted to end her life as her cancer was causing her unbearable pain. But no one took that seriously, probably because she was a fun-loving person and would often crack jokes.
Anupama Pathak made a video about her intention to commit suicide, which she posted on Facebook on 1st August. She ended her life the next day.
