Sad news 16 year old sweet tik-toker @siya_kakkar died by suicide . Before publishing this I spoke to her Talent management agency head Arjun Sarin who just spoke to her last night for a song collaboration and he says she was in a good mood and perfectly alright. Even he has no clue what went wrong that she had to go this way. You go through her videos and you can she was so good in her content, it's really sad that she chose this path. If you are feeling depressed please dont do this 🙏
The exact reason behind Kakkar's decision to take such an extreme step is still unknown. However, reports suggest that the family members of the TikTok star have requested a detailed police investigation into the teen's death.
Siya Kakkar was famous for her dance videos and kept posting them regularly on several social media platforms. She had over 105,000 followers on Instagram and more than 1.2 million on the Chinese short video-making application TikTok.
