Mumbai: Vishal Thakkar, who acted in Sanjay Dutt’s Munna Bhai MBBS movie, has gone missing. A missing complaint has been filed in a police station in Mumbai on Jan 6.
According to a report by Asian Age, the 31-year-old-actor was depressed over the ‘rapist’ tag. The daily reported that the actor went missing on the morning of January 1 from Fountain Hotel at Ghodbunder Road (Thane) while taking a tea break. Vishal was on his way back from a resort in Ahmedabad after celebrating New Year’s Eve with girlfriend Rajani Rathod when he disappeared. The couple decided to halt at the Fountain Hotel for tea from where the actor went missing.
“While having tea at Fountain, Vishal told Rajani he had to meet a friend in Andheri and left. Thereafter, Rajani tried looking for him but in vain. His phone too is switched off ever since. Nobody knows about his whereabouts”, investigating officer Jayvant Padvi was quoted as saying by Asian Age.
He added, “During the investigation, Rajani told us that he has been suffering from depression of late because he hasn’t been getting work. His frustrations had strained the couple’s relationship and they would quarrel frequently. We are looking into all aspects. We haven’t reached any conclusion so far. Investigations are still on.”
Vishal’s parents filed a missing person’s complaint at Mulund Police station in Mumbai on January 6.
In October last year, Vishal was accused by his girlfriend of rape. She had even lodged a complaint against him at Mumbai’s Charkop police station. The couple later sorted out their differences and his girlfriend withdrew her complaint. However, Vishal was depressed over not getting work due to his tarnished image.
Vishal was last seen in the Colors show Thapki Pyar Ki. He’s also featured in small roles in films like Munnabhai MBBS and Chandni Bar.
