Television actress Pratyusha Banerjee, best known for her portrayal of Anandi in the popular serial Balika Vadhu, was found dead at her suburban residence on April 1, 2016, under mysterious circumstances.

She was also seen in Sasural Simar Ka, another popular TV series aired on Colors channel. Her last TV show was Hum Hain Naa.

Shankar Banerjee also added that he normally gets garlands easily, but he couldn't find anyone selling garlands due to the lockdown. He also added that after a long time of looking, he found a few flowers and made a garland by himself for his daughter.
