According to actor Chetan Hansraj, Kushal committed suicide due to stress and financial problems. “He has apparently committed suicide. I spoke to him on the Christmas eve, he was sounding low but not to the point that he will do something like this. He was in a bit stress about his work and some financial support and all that. But I think everyone in this industry has some stress-related work. I think his married life was also going through some difficult time. Last night his dad called me up”, said Chetan.
