“Sad news, the sweet 16-year-old tik-toker @siya_kakkar died of suicide. Before posting this, I spoke to her head of talent management agency Arjun Sarin, who just spoke to her last night for a song collaboration and he says he was in a good mood and perfectly fine. Even he has no idea what went wrong that she had to go this way. You check her videos and she may have been so good at her content, it’s really sad that she has Chosen this way. If you feel depressed please don’t do this 🙏, “captioned photos of the star.
