Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who rose to become a formidable presence on the big screen, committed suicide on Sunday afternoon. The ‘Kedarnath’ actor was found hanging at his Bandra residence in Mumbai.
Last week, Disha Salian, who was also Rajput’s former manager had committed suicide. The event management executive had jumped off from a 14-storied building in Mumbai’s Malad area.
The 34-year-old had been saddened by the death.
While the industry is still reeling with the passing away of Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor in April, Bollywood has to now deal with yet another loss.
His last release was ‘Chhichhore’, which hit the screens in 2019. He romanced Shraddha Kapoor in the film, which emerged as a massive blockbuster at the box office. The actor was rumoured to be in a relationship with Rhea Kapoor and the couple was often snapped by the paparazzi around the city. Sushant Singh Rajput earned massive fame with a TV show and made a successful transition to films. He marked his debut in Bollywood with ‘Kai Po Che!’ in 2012 and went on to deliver massive hits like ‘PK’ and ‘Kedarnath’. His biggest hit till date remains ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’. On the professional front, Sushant was to be seen in Mukesh Chhabra directed ‘Dil Bechara’ with Sanjana Sanghi. The film was an official remake of Hollywood hit ‘The Fault in Our Stars’.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s last Instagram post was for his mother. The actor had shared, “He shared a picture of his mother and wrote, “Blurred past evaporating from teardrops Unending dreams carving an arc of smile And a fleeting life, negotiating between the two… #माँ ❤️”.
