The Bollywood-style confessional video of the dying actress Shikha Joshi, who played a small role in the award-winning film BA Pass, has come under police investigation.
Though the Mumbai Police are suspecting it to be a case of suicide, Shikha's brother Vishesh Joshi, has apparently questioned the reason for her room-mate Madhu Harti to first record the so-called confession before taking her to the hospital.
The said video landed with television channel TV9 Marathi who interviewed the room-mate after Shikha's demise, and aired the video as an 'exclusive'. The introduction below the video on TV9 Marathi's official YouTube channel reads, "Watch Model Shikha Joshi’s EXCLUSIVE VIDEO Before Death… A 40-year-old Model cum actor Shikha Joshi was found dead with suspicious marks on her neck in the bathroom of her apartment in Mumbai residence.."

Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar considers this "a dangerous trend". He believes that the business of sensationalism should be kept away from matters of life and death. "Citizens should stop acting as cops, judges and journalists, and leave those jobs to them," says the publicist.
Bollywood has witnessed quite a few mysterious celebrity deaths in the last few years. Some of the names include Divya Bharti, Nafisa Joseph, Kuljeet Randhawa, Viveka Babajee and Jiah Khan.
