It has been reported that 32-year-old was depressed as he was not getting any work in the film industry following a legal complaint against him.
Vishal's girlfriend had accused Vishal of raping her. Police earlier in Oct 2015 arrested the actor. However, he was released from jail as his girlfriend withdrew the case following a patch up between the duo.
However, Vishal was struggling to get any work as the case has already tarnished his image. The actor's girlfriend first alerted police when she could not trace Vishal's whereabouts since Jan 1.
Police officials, who have been investigating the case, were quoted as saying, "During the investigation, Rajani (Vishal's girlfriend) told us that he has been suffering from depression of late because he hasn't been getting work."
"His frustrations had strained the couple's relationship and they would quarrel frequently. We are looking into all aspects. We haven't reached any conclusion so far. Investigations are still on," the officials added.
