Even as the TV and film industry is struggling to come to terms with the suicide of Pratyusha Banerjee of 'Balika Vadhu' fame, former manager of Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra, Prakash Jaju, has come out with a shocking claim.
According to media reports, the actor, who shot to international fame with ABC's thriller Quantico where she plays Alex Parrish, a promising FBI agent, was quite vulnerable during her struggling days and had tried to kill herself, Jaju had tweeted.
PRAKASH JAJU @Prakashjaaj
PC may look very strong now but she was also very vulnerable in struggling days, tried to commit suicide 2-3 times but i managed to stop her
PRAKASH JAJU @Prakashjaaju When the girls r in struggling days in films they r very vulnerable, become more vulnerable when they become big star cause of loneliness
In another tweet, he said how those who come to Mumbai looking to make it big to modeling or films fall prey to drugs.

PRAKASH JAJU @Prakashjaaju Parents should not send their daughter to mumbai alone to try in film/TV industry.
Jaju and Priyanka Chopra were not in good terms after the latter terminated Jaju's contract abruptly following which he filed a lawsuit against the actor.
