The actor had shared a purported suicide note on his Facebook account before his death. He allegedly said in the piece that he was taking the step (of suicide) after going through an unhappy marriage. He has mentioned his relatives in the note, and talked about his struggles in detail. Nahar was a recognisable face in the TV industry, as well.
In June last year, his co-star in the film MS Dhoni, Sushant Singh Rajput, had allegedly died by suicide, sparking a raging debate on nepotism in the film industry, and a prolonged case against his then girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
