South Indian Telugu actress Aarthi Agarwal died due to failed liposuction surgery in New Jersey Saturday afternoon. Her funeral will be held on Monday after the post mortem report.
The 31-year-old actress suffered cardiac arrest in a private hospital in the U.S.
Her manager said in a statement, “Aarthi was battling obesity and pulmonary illness. She was undergoing treatment and due to some complications, she suffered a cardiac arrest and passed away”.
Since weekends are non-working days in the United States, her post mortem is expected to be done on Monday. Aarthi’s last rites will also be held on Monday in New Jersey as per Hindu traditions.
In 2015 Aarthi attempted to commit suicide. Her affair with her co-star had disturbed her a lot and was said to be the reason behind the decision.
Aarthi appeared in hit Telugu films like “Nuvvu Leka Nenu Lenu”, “Indra” and “Vasantham”.
Celebrities took to Twitter to express their shock and condolence. Khusbu tweeted,
It’s true..hope the family find the strength to cope with the loss of their loved one. #AarthiAgarwal u r gone too soon..RIP
