Canadian TikTok star Megha Thakur died suddenly last week, her parents revealed.

Thakur, 21, had over 1 million followers spread across her TikTok and Instagram accounts at the time of her death. Her parents announced her death in an Instagram post on the star’s account on Tuesday, saying she died “suddenly and unexpectedly.”

“It is with heavy hearts we announce the light of our life, our kind, caring, and beautiful daughter, Megha Thakur, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on November 24, 2022 in the early morning hours,” the post read, with an attached image of Thakur with her lifespan next to her.


“Megha was a confident and independent young woman. She will be dearly missed. She loved her fans and would have wanted you to know of her passing. At this time, we request your blessings for Megha. Your thoughts and prayers will be with her in her onward journey,” it added.

A funeral service was held on Tuesday.

The comments on the post were filled with messages of support and mourning.

“My dearest Megha, this is absolutely devastating. Sending your family so much love. I’m so truly saddened by the loss of a creative genius,” influencer Stephanie Valentine wrote.

“Megha knew how much of a force she was in the influencer space and how many women looked up to her, I told her all the time. We lost an angel too soon. I’m keeping you and your family in my thoughts,” writer Daisy Maldonado wrote.


In her final TikTok post, Thakur was shown walking across a New York City crosswalk with the attached message, “YOU’RE in charge of your own destiny. Remember that.”
