Popular Tamil TV actor and comedian Myna Nandhini's husband Karthikeyan committed suicide in Chennai on Monday.

Karthikeyan consumed poison at a lodge in Virugambakkam and the police are currently investigating the case, IBTimes reported. 

A lodge employee, who got suspicious after Karthikeyan didn't come out of his room for a long time, looked inside and found him unconscious. 

Though Karthikeyan has blamed his father-in-law in his suicide note, police believe that may not have been the real reason. "He was in an affair and that woman killed herself a few days ago as things were not going according to her plan. She had got divorced recently. There are also a few complaints against him for taking money from people and promising them jobs and not giving it," said Srinivasan, inspector of Virugambakkam police station.

Karthikeyan reportedly ran a gym in the city and got married to Nandhini last year. 

Nandhini, one of the most popular comedians in the Tamil TV industry, shot to fame with her role of Myna in Vijay TV's Saravanan Meenatchi.

She also worked as a judge in Kalaka Povathu Yaru Season 5.
