Sad news 16 year old sweet tik-toker @siya_kakkar died by suicide . Before publishing this I spoke to her Talent management agency head Arjun Sarin who just spoke to her last night for a song collaboration and he says she was in a good mood and perfectly alright. Even he has no clue what went wrong that she had to go this way. You go through her videos and you can she was so good in her content, it's really sad that she chose this path. If you are feeling depressed please dont do this 🙏
Netizens are shocked at Siya Kakkar’s sudden demise as the young star had a bright future ahead. Take a look at how Twitter exploded with condolence messages:

It's PAINFUL, Tik Toker #siyakakkar committed suicide. She was just 16 years old. Reason behind suicide is not out yet. Just visited her profile on TikTok and it's filled with many good videos.
But question is Why suicide ?
