“I had a word with her last night for a new project and she sounded normal,” Sarin added.

“Sad news 16-year-old sweet tik-toker @siya_kakkar died by suicide. Before publishing this I spoke to her Talent management agency head Arjun Sarin who just spoke to her last night for song collaboration and he says she was in a good mood and perfectly alright. Even he has no clue what went wrong that she had to go this way. You go through her videos and you can she was so good in her content, it’s really sad that she chose this path. If you are feeling depressed please don’t do this (sic),” wrote photographer Viral Bhayani in an Instagram post.


The late TikTok star was active on all the online platforms and was known for her dance videos.

Sarin had over 104k followers on Instagram and over 1.1 million followers on TikTok.
