Marathi film producer Atul B. Tapkir (35) was found dead at a luxury hotel, Pune on Sunday.
Tapkir’s Facebook post indicated that he was disturbed over a financial loss in filmmaking and a troubled family life. Police had to break open the hotel room where they found Tapkir’s body.
A case of accidental death has been registered by the Deccan Gymkhana Police Station. The body has been sent for an autopsy.
He was depressed over the financial losses by producing Marathi film “Dhol Taashe”.
In the lengthy post, he said that while his father and sisters backed him, his wife Priyanka harassed him.
His wife threw him out of their home, and he was living out of the house since six months.
He was also upset as she kept away their children from him. She also made allegations against him and defamed him in the neighbourhood.
Tapkir’s post mentioned that his wife got her brothers to threaten and beat him up. He shared how when some days ago, he called her and abused her, she abused him and his family in return and lodged a police complaint against them. Tapkir has urged Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis that “the police must listen to a man’s side of the story too when a woman lodges a complaint”.
He said his last wish was that since his wife cannot look after their children, his father should raise them.
Tapkir said he has saved in a pen drive, the incident when his wife’s brother hurled abuses at him for the proof.
