TV Actors Vaibhavi Upadhyaya, Nitesh Pandey & Aditya Rajput Pass Away Leaving Industry In Shock

I feel that when it rains on the Indian TV and film industry, it pours. Just recently we got the sad news of the sudden demise of Splitsvilla fame-actor Aditya Singh Rajput. And now, there are not one but two shocking pieces of news that have jolted the industry.

In an unfortunate car accident in Shimla, actress Vaibhavi Upadhyaya, whom we recognize as Jasmine from the show ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’, passed away.

According to a report by Zee News, the 32-year-old actress was travelling in her Fortuner car with her fiance when it fell into a gorge as they were trying to navigate their way through a steep curve in the Banjar area of the Kullu district.

“Vaibhavi tried to get out of the vehicle through the window and sustained a head injury which proved fatal while the other passenger was safe,” informed SP Kullu Sakshi Verma.

Vaibhavi’s friends from the fraternity and fans alike couldn’t believe this tragic news.

Along with the death of Vaibhavi came another resourceful report that sent shockwaves to the industry. Another acclaimed and popular TV actor Nitesh Pandey left for his heavenly abode after he suffered a cardiac arrest in Igatpuri, Maharashtra.

Nitesh Pandey (51) was in movies like ‘Madaari’, ‘Badhaai Do’ and in TV shows like ‘Anupamaa’, ‘Astitva… Ek Prem Kahani’, and ‘Saaya’, among others.

According to a report by The Indian Express, Nitesh was travelling for work when he got a heart attack. Producer JD Majethia informed, “Nitesh was in Igatpuri and suffered a cardiac arrest. He passed away around 2 am.”

It was also reported that Nitesh Pandey was at a hotel in Igatpuri when he was found deceased. Currently, a police team is investigating the matter.

The passing away of three TV stars in a matter of days got people wondering how unpredictable life is.
