Divya Bharti's 'controversial' death

Known Bollywood actress and model Divya Bharti who was married to producer Sajid Nadiadwala, fell to her death from her five-story apartment building in Versova, Mumbai in 1993.

Following her death there was much speculation by the media regarding Bharti's sudden demise, including the possibility of accidental death, conspiracy and even murder.

Even after the investigations, the Mumbai Police failed to find any evidence against Nadiadwala. He was never charged for murder and the case was closed in 1998, labelling it as an accidental death.
