Actress turned politician Jayasudha’s husband and film producer Nitin Kapoor was found dead in Mumbai Tuesday. Kapoor allegedly committed suicide by jumping off a building in Mumbai, ANI reported.
Nitin Kapoor is the cousin of Bollywood actor Jeetendra.
He married Jayasudha in 1985. He is survived by Jayasudha and two sons – Nihar and Shreyan who are also into films. Jayasudha has acted in over 250 films across several languages, including Malayalam.
Jayasudha joined the Congress before the 2009 assembly elections and won from Secunderabad constituency. She, however, failed to retain the seat in the 2014 elections.
In 2016, Jayasudha resigned from the Congress and joined Telugu Desam Party, led by Andhra Pradesh chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.
