(NEWS ROOM GUYANA) — A Queens monster who fatally stabbed his wife, a bartender, and then hanged himself from a tree was insanely jealous of a ‘rival’ thousands of miles away: megastar Indian actor Hrithik Roshan, her grieving friends told The Post Saturday.
Donne Dojoy, 27, was enthralled by the Hindi heartthrob’s soulful performances and lithesome dancing — an innocent infatuation that sent her husband, Dineshwar Budhidat, 33, into fits of rage, the pals said.
“She told me when she was at home watching a movie or listening to a song [with Roshan in it] he would ask her to take it off because he would get so jealous,” said Mala Ramdhani, 52, a karaoke singer at Gemini’s Ultra Lounge in Ozone Park, where Dojoy worked.
“Any movie he acted in she wanted to see it,” Ramdhani said of Roshan, whose latest two Bollywood movies, “War” and “Super 30,” were blockbusters.
“Her favorite movie was “Kaho Naa … Pyaar Hai,” Ramdahani said of the 2000 romantic thriller that launched Roshan’s career into superstardom. The title is Hindi for “Say …You Are In Love.”
On her last day alive, Friday, Dojoy — who had moved out two weeks prior — agreed to stop by their old Ozone Park apartment, on Albert Road, to watch a movie and “chill” with Budhidat before her evening bartender shift, said Andel Rodney, 29, a chef at the lounge.
Her friends don’t know what movie the two may have watched, or precisely what made the husband snap.
But at around 7:30 p.m., Budhidat texted his wife’s sister, saying he had killed her, and instructing that the key to the apartment could be found under a flower pot, police sources said later Friday.
Then he left behind his wife’s stabbed body and hanged himself from a tree in a field in nearby Howard Beach, the sources said.
“I think he loved her but at the same time, he was obsessed with her, because of the type of job she did, and she had a good [sexy] body,” said Rodney, a friend of Dojoy for four years said.
“She looked good, she always made her money, so he was probably jealous of her.”
Dojoy would tell her friends that he was controlling, even violent.
“She talked about him abusing her, controlling her, beating her, scaring her, threatening to kill her,” Rodney added.
“She never took it seriously because she loved him.”
