Munna Bhai M.B.B.S actor Vishal Thakkar who featured in the song Chaila Kya Surat Thi from the movie is missing since three years. According to Indian Express reports, even police is unable to trace him. On December 31, 2015, Vishal borrowed Rs 500 from his mother Durga to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he had also asked her to join him for the film which she denied. Later that night around 1 am, he had texted his father, who is a businessman “I am going to a party. See you tomorrow.” And it’s been three years since they heard from him.
Speaking to Indian Express, Vishal’s mother Durga said, “I have no clue what happened to my son.” As per the report, the police said his girlfriend saw him last on Ghodbunder Road as he hailed an autorickshaw to Andheri for a shoot at 11.45 am on January 1. Post his last Facebook update, wishing a ‘Happy New Year’ at 12:10pm, things turned mysterious as his phone was found switched off, no hospital reported an unidentified man matching his description, there was no ransom call nor was his phone ever found switched on again with even his bank account showing zero activity ever since.
His girlfriend was under suspicion initially but later the police cleared her, finding her statement sans any discrepancies. However, Vishal’s mother revealed that his then-girlfriend, who was also a TV actor, had lodged a complaint of rape and assault against him in October 2015, a few months before he disappeared. “She frequented our house. One day they were together and the next day, she landed at my door with police,” said Durga. The family suspects that it could be the reason for his disappearance though Durga mentioned, “It was a minor fight. Later, the two of them resolved it.” The actress, who had withdrawn her complaint then, was found dead in her Kandivali flat, possibly due to a heart attack, eight months ago.
Durga added, “He was a mumma’s boy. He could not bear the insult we faced.” The report mentions the statement by Inspector N A Kulkarni, who told IE, “We don’t know if it’s a murder, or a kidnapping, or he has run away.” The police were of the opinion that he was left depressed since his acting career took a hit after the harassment complaint.
