Bollywood actress, Aarthi Agarwal, who was born in New Jersey has died at the age of 31 after an apparent liposuction surgery in the United States that went wrong, Mail Online reports.
She reportedly died of cardiac arrest at a hospital in Atlantic City after suffering respiratory problems, according to her manager. The death on Friday is believed to have occurred approximately one month after the actress received liposuction surgery in the United States.
Agarwal made her debut in Bollywood at age 16, but shot to fame after performing in 2001’s Nuvvu Naaku Nachav, according to the International Business Times. Although she was born in the US, she quickly became a rising star in Indian cinema.
The actress was particularly popular in the ‘Tollywood’ Telugu language film industry, but also starred in Tamil and Hindi films, according to MailOnline.
In 2005 she acted in a career-high five films, according to the Indian Express. However, she also reportedly tried to commit suicide that year after a relationship with a fellow co-star went sour and the lack of new movie offers.
May her soul rest in peace!
