The circumstances surrounding her death raised concerns, with her neighbors alerting the police due to a foul smell emanating from her flat. An investigation into her death has been initiated by Mumbai Police, and despite her family not claiming her body, an NGO conducted her cremation.

The All India Cine Workers Association wrote to Maharashtra's Chief Minister, urging a thorough investigation into her death. The letter highlighted the recurring tragedies within the film industry and stressed the need for introspection and justice. “Her untimely death is a poignant reminder of the disturbing trend of suicides within the Indian film fraternity. The recurrence of such tragic incidents within the Bollywood industry calls for a serious introspection and a thorough investigation into the underlying causes. It is imperative to explore all possible factors, including the potential for foul play, to ensure that the truth is brought to light and justice is served,” read the letter.

Kajol's co-star Noor, aged 31, tragically passed away at her flat in Mumbai's Lokhandwala area on June 6.
