Actor-producer Nitin Kapoor, husband of actress-politician Jayasudha was found dead in Mumbai on Tuesday.
He allegedly committed suicide by jumping off a building in Mumbai, reports said. The reason behind the alleged suicide, however, is not clear.
Kapoor, a film producer and cousin of Bollywood actor Jithendra, married Jayasudha in 1985 after two years of courtship. The couple is survived by two sons, Nihar and Shreayan.
There are also rumours stating that Nitin had been suffering from severe depression, having been under psychiatric treatment for the same.
Jayasudha was a Congress MLA from Secunderabad before she joined rival party Telugu Desam Party in 2016. In 2014, she failed to retain the Secunderabad seat, losing TRS candidate T Padma Rao.
In one of the interviews the couple gave to a leading newspaper earlier, Jayasudha was quoted saying, “From day one I was impressed by his good looks and the way he used to converse. If I say I wasn’t attracted towards him, I would be lying. But, it was not love at first sight. But, yes, I liked him and his company.”
While Nitin said, “We were good friends with no sparks flying. Our exciting story actually began when I started travelling between Mumbai and Chennai. That was when we felt a void in our lives and started missing each other.”
