Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Shehzaadi Kabul's Mariam, played by actress Tunisha Sharma, passed away on December 24. Sharma, age 21, allegedly committed suicide on the Vasai area of Maharashtra's Palghar district's daily television drama set. A day after Tunisha's passing, her co-star Sheezan Khan was detained when Tunisha's mother filed a complaint of aiding suicide against him. According to reports, the scene did not contain a suicide note.

According to the news agency IANS, Tunisha's body was sent to the JJ hospital in Mumbai for a post-mortem. The reports revealed no physical damage on Sharma, and the pregnancy rumours were also denied. Her autopsy reports indicated that she suffocated to death after hanging herself.

Let's learn more about the actor Sheezan Khan:

Sheezan Khan was born in September 1994 and raised in Mumbai, where he earned a degree from the University of Mumbai. Khan enjoys working out and is an animal lover. He also frequently speaks at TEDx events. He is the younger brother of prominent television actresses Falaq Naaz and Shafaq Naaz. In the past, Sheezan allegedly had a relationship with Mrinal Singh, best known for Kundali Bhagya.

Sheezan has established a name for himself in the television world, just like his older sisters. He made his acting debut as the young Akbar in the historical television drama Jodha Akbar. After then, he appeared in numerous daily soap operas, such as Chandra Nandini, Silsila Pyaar Ka, Prithvi-Itihaas Bhi, and Rahasya Bhi. The turning point in his career was playing Arjun Priya in Tara From Satara and Raghav in Ek Thi Rani Ek Tha Raavan. Following that, he was sought out to play the lead part in Nazar 2. He is now portraying the title role in Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul on Sab TV.

The Mumbai police are currently questioning Sheezan Khan, who was allegedly dating Tunisha Sharma. He is currently being held by the police for 4 days. He has been booked under IPC section 306 for abetment of suicide. According to the reports, Khan stated in his initial statement that they were once dating but broke up due to their vastly divergent religious beliefs and even ages. The cops are not entirely happy with his statement, though. The actor is allegedly being accused of having many relationships with girls, and Shezan's family is accused of cheating, according to the police.

On the Saturday set of her television show Ali Baba: Dastaan-e-Kabul, actor Tunisha Sharma, 20, was discovered dead. Around 3.30 pm, the incident took place in Sharma's co-star and purported boyfriend Sheezan M Khan's makeup area.

With the Sony TV series Maharana Pratap, Tunisha Sharma made her acting debut as Chand Kanwar. She later played Princess Ahinkara in the Colors TV show Chakravartin Ashok Samrat. On the big screen, she appeared alongside Katrina Kaif and Vidya Balan. With Fitoor, Tunisha made her acting debut as the younger Katrina Kaif. In Baar Baar Dekho, she followed suit. In Kahaani 2, she appeared on film alongside Vidya Balan. Her appearances on Television shows including Internet Wala Love, Ishq Subhallah, Gayab, and Sher-E-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh made her a well-known face.
