Remember Alphonsa, the item girl in Rajinikanth’s “Ra, Ra Ramaiah..” song in Basha, Vikram’s Dil and Mohanlal’s Narasimham? She had also become a hot B-grade heroine following the success of the softporn film Paruva Mazhai.
On Sunday night, the hot and sultry Alphonsa attempted suicide by taking an overdose of sleeping pills, after her boyfriend Vinod Kumar was found hanging in her apartment in Virugambakkam in Chennai!
Alphonsa is the sister of famous choreographer Robert Raj. She was living withher 25 year old boyfriend Vinod Kumar an aspiring actor whose debut film Kavasam is yet to see the light of the day. Alphonsa who is married and has a daughter is yet to formally divorce her estranged husband.
According to sources Vinod was pestering Alphonsa to marry him, which led to arguments. On Sunday night the actress had come back from Dubai after a show, and neighbours had reported that they had heard loud arguments and also found that lights were on till early morning.
Vinod Kumar’s relatives suspect foul play. They have told the police that Alphonsa and her family had murdered Vinod and are making it out to be a suicide. They allege that Alphonsa took sleeping pills fearing arrest.
However the actress had previously attempted suicide after her relationshipwith little known actor Sagar broke up.
The irony of it is that Alphonsa had taken sleeping pills then and was admitted in the same hospital where she is now being treated !
