Where she can be seen lip-syncing along to a script, smiling, and evidently in good spirits.

Her manager, Arjun Sarin, confirmed the devastating news...

He claimed that the teen was "doing well," and said in a statement: "This must be due to something personal... I had a word with her last night for a new project and she sounded normal. Me and my company, Fame Experts, manage lots of artists and Siya was a bright talent. I am heading to her home in Preet Vihar."

Paparazzo, Viral Bhayani, claimed on Instagram:

"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 a song collaboration and he says she was in a good mood and perfectly alright."

He continued:

"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."

Something needs to be done about this toxic social media culture, and fast.

Rest in peace, Siya Kakkar.
