The body of actress Kritika Choudhary 30, was found in decomposed state in her Andheri residence in Mumbai.
The house was locked on the outside leading to suspicions of possible murder.
Police broke open the house around 3.30 pm on Monday following complaint from neighbours on foul smell emanating from the bungalow.
The air-conditioner was left on. “This is why the stench did not come out earlier, she must have died atleast 4 days back”, a police official said.
Kritika Choudhary is said to be a ‘struggling actress’ in the film industry and has been last seen in Kangana Ranaut-starrer ‘Rajjo’. She had also worked in few Balaji production TV serials.
The body has been sent for post-mortem.
