Chennai:

A Tamil TV actress on Wednesday allegedly committed suicide at her house here, apparently because of differences with her husband who is being questioned in this connection, police said.

The matter came to light this morning when the maid arrived at the 32-year-old actress's house and nobody answered the door, they said.

The servant then looked through a window and found Priyanka's body hanging, the police said.

The maid informed the neighbours about this, and they called the police.
