Arya Banerjee, who starred in Milan Luthria’s 2011 film The Dirtry Image, was found dead on December 11 at her home in Kolkata. The actress played the part of Shakeela in Vidya Balan-Starrer.
According to sources, the police had to crack open the door to her home in Kolkata and find the body of a 33-year-old actress lying in the bedroom. The police were summoned after Arya Banerjee’s domestic help had become suspicious, as she had not responded to door bells and phone calls since morning.
