Tirthanand Rao, a comedian best known for his time on “The Kapil Sharma Show,” reportedly attempted suicide on live television by drinking poison and saying that the woman who was blackmailing him should be held accountable for his death.

Rao stated during a live video on his Facebook page that he was living with the woman in issue and that she was emotionally blackmailing and controlling him.

When his friends and coworkers saw the video online, they hurried to his house where they discovered him to be unconscious.

Rao claimed in the video that the woman was attempting to extort money from him and that as a result of her, he owed her between Rs 3 and 4 lakh.

In the now-deleted video, Rao claimed, “I know her since October last year. She had filed a police complaint against me in Bhayander and I don’t even know the reason behind it. She would call me and say that she wanted to meet.”

Rao was seen getting a bottle of mosquito repellent and pouring it into a glass as he described his trauma. He drank it after declaring that the woman was to blame for his condition.

When Rao’s friends reached his place, he was found in an unconscious state and they rushed him to a nearby hospital, where he is now undergoing treatment.

Rao reportedly attempted suicide before, according to the reports. He contacted his assistant and announced his impending suicide in December 2021 while streaming live on his Facebook account.

He was saved by his assistant and friends, but he later revealed to an entertainment website that he had been having personal and professional difficulties. “My financial status is in shambles and I don’t have any savings,” he had said.

He had also alleged that despite doing a couple of web series, he was not paid for them. He had also stated that there were days when he went to bed empty-stomach, or survived on just one vada.
