Well, there were a lot of people and media reports that had suggested that the actor was going through some financial crisis. When the same question was asked to his friend, he said, "He hadn't resumed shooting post the lockdown, so yes, he may have been going through some financial issues."

But as for now, the Malad police is waiting for the post-mortem reports as they had said, "We are awaiting the final post-mortem report, but our preliminary investigations reveal that he was suffering from mental health issues."
In a Mid-Day report, senior inspector, George Fernandez, Malad police station had informed, "A case of accidental death has been registered, and the body has been sent for autopsy." Revealing the news, ANI had tweeted, "TV actor & model Samir Sharma was found hanging from his kitchen ceiling at his residence in Malad West last night. Accidental Death Report registered, body sent for autopsy. Looking at body's condition, it's suspected that he died by suicide two days back: Malad Police. #Mumbai."
After his untimely demise, one of the posts that had gone viral was the poetry he had uploaded on his Instagram handle on July 27, 2020. Samir Sharma had taken to his Instagram handle and had posted an artistic photo of his face with poetry written atop. The poetry could be read as "I built my pyre and slept on it, and with my fire, it was lit. And all that was me I burned in it, I killed my dream to wake up from it. Now my dream is gone, and with it, I woke up to ashes and I was in it, I took what was left and left it in a stream and hoped my ashes this time have a better dream." Take a look.
