The whole television industry was in a state of shock when the news about veteran actor, Mukesh Rawal who is best remembered for his role of Vibhishan in the most popular adaptation of 'Ramayan' was found dead on railway tracks two days ago.
The saga intensified when there were rumors about the death being an apparent suicide which makes it even more saddening. However, while people jump to conclusions, the actor has two daughters, Arya Vaid Barbhaya and Vipra Rawal Mewani, both of them actresses, who had a different take on this issue.
According to a leading news daily, Vipra mentioned that her father was happy and content without any signs of depression whatsoever. The whole family is in a state of shock and cannot imagine how this whole thing would have transpired. She also gave an interesting insight mentioning that despite his father owning a car, he preferred public transport.
So that leaves no surprise, that he was travelling by train that day where he was supposed to reach a dubbing studio. She said that he must have tried to take the shortcut to the railway platform. She said that her father often forgot to take his cellphone with himself and the same happened that day too. The panicking started when he did not return home by the night.
Mukesh's younger daughter, Arya Vaid Barbhaya mentioned that it was shocking to learn this and it is not suicide but an accident as the motorman even saw him crossing the railway tracks.
While these things cannot change what has happened; but we extend our heartfelt condolences to the family.
