Salman Khan’s co-star from Wanted, Inder Kumar, passed away in July year. He was 44 and the reason for his untimely death was said to be a cardiac arrest. However, a video, which he himself has made has surfaced on the internet, where the actor is seen getting emotional, crying and talking about how his bad habits and mistakes have ruined his life and forced him to take an extreme decision to commit suicide. He is seen consuming alcohol in the video and is in a inebriated state. There have been ample speculations ever since about Inder Kumar’s actual cause of death
The video is viral and doing the rounds on the internet and people are assuming that is the video he shot just before committing suicide. However, his wife Pallavi Saraf conducted a press conference today where she spoke about the video and the truth behind it. Pallavi said, “It is not a real video. It is actually a scene from a film called ‘Phatti Padi Hai Yaar’ for which he had shot a year-and-half ago. It is sad that people are confusing the film scene with his real life.” Talking about the low phase in her husband’s life, where he was accused of rape by a struggling actress in 2014, she said, “During that phase, he was highly disturbed. There were, of course, days where he broke down. He was concerned that his name was dragged into this but he never gave up.”
About the video and how it made into the public domain, Pallavi said the film’s production team was unaware of how it got leaked and have denied charges of it being a publicity stunt. The film however is slated for a release in late 2018. She also said that his death certificate mentions heart attack so there can be no motive to release a video which says otherwise.
