It has been a terrible year for the entertainment fraternity. Recently, Tamil filmmaker Arun Prasath passed away in a road accident in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. Further, TV actors, Preksha Mehta (25) and Manmeet Grewal (32) committed suicide, reportedly due to worries over the ongoing lockdown and consequent lack of work opportunities. Not long ago, India lost two celebrated actors, Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor.
