Kannada film producer V Srinivas, who was producing the movie Veerappan Attahasa, has been found dead mysteriously at his farm house. According to reports, the 42-year-old producer allegedly shot himself in the forehead on Saturday night. Sources close to his family say that he was depressed over financial matters.
V Srinivas, who was involved in real estate business, went to his six-acre farm house on Saturday evening. Before committing suicide, the producer spoke to his brothers and sisters for about 30 minutes. He reportedly shot himself on his forehead with a loaded .32 mm revolver that he carried along with.
He had switched off his mobile phone before killing himself. When they did not get any response from his cell phone, his family and friends suspected something fishy and came to the farmhouse, where he was lying in a pool of blood. The revolver was found on the left side of the body.
However, V Srinivas is survived by wife and two children. The police sources say that preliminary investigation is pointing to suicide. But AMR Ramesh, who is directing his next movie Veerappan Attahasa, says that he did not have any financial problems and he still could not believe that he killed himself out of depression.
