The deceased has been identified as Anjali, a native of Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, who lived alone in Parimal Apartments in Juhu.
The incident came to light when she couldn't be reached by her friends and relatives.
Her relatives became anxious when she did not respond to their multiple calls and alerted her landlord, who went to the flat and opened the door with a spare key to find her hanging from a ceiling fan, Karandikar said. The police has taken Anjali's dead body to Cooper Hospital for a postmortem. Police is now investigating the reason behind her suicide. The hanging body shocked everyone at the spot who could not have believed the actress may take such an extreme step.
