On learning about his death, TV actor Ashwin Mushran tweeted: “This probably won’t be talked about as much as SSR but a TV actor is presumed to have killed himself. Samir Sharma - Talented guy with a lot of work to his name. It’s harsh for people in this industry right now. Not everybody has the support or can maybe reach out for it.”
