Bollywood Homicide

At a local Bollywood production of Hamlet—The Musical—a terrible tragedy occurred. The star of the production was found shot and killed backstage. Her name was Himanshi and she had been destined for great things. The famous detective Sherlock Holmes was on the scene within the hour. Sherlock Holmes reviewed the information they had on the case so far.

Aside from Himanshi, the only suspects were the other cast members:  Ankit , Tarum, Harish, Manoj and Manish. What Holmes found out later shocked him. The killer was a fan of Sherlock and challenged him personally by leaving little notes at various places at the crime scene.
* The first note was found in the testing room.
* The second note was found in an artistic development room.
* The third note was found in the restroom.
* The fourth note was found in the underwater effects room.
* The fifth note was found in the make-up department.

All of the notes read the same thing, ‘The clues are where you find the notes.’ Yet, nothing else was found anywhere the notes were found.
Sherlock, of course, immediately solved the case. Who was the killer?
