Sushant Singh Rajput Passes Away: 34 year old actor found dead at Mumbai home

(Trigger Warning)

The year 2020 hasn't been kind to Bollywood. After the loss of Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan, the industry has lost Sushant Singh Rajput. The actor passed away on June 14, Sunday. According to numerous news portals and Mumbai Police, Sushant died by suicide. The actor was 34. Sushant was dating Rhea Chakraborty. Reports suggest he was found hanging at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on Sunday. The police have searched his residence but they haven't found a note. A spokesperson said the investigation is still going on. 

Sushant made his Bollywood debut with Kai Po Che. The actor shared the screen with Rajkummar Rao in the movie. While he was a popular face, courtesy his television career, Sushant reached greater heights with his portrayal of Indian cricketer MS Dhoni. The actor played the former Indian skipper in his biopic. The actor was last seen on the big screen in Chhichore, opposite Shraddha Kapoor and Varun Sharma. Apart from his film career, Sushant was also known for his long television career. The actor played the lead character in Pavitra Rishta opposite Ankita Lokhande. 

The shocking news of his death comes just a few days after his ex-manager Disha Salian passed away. The actor had mourned the loss of his ex-manager on Instagram. Sushant had penned, "It’s such a devastating news. My deepest condolences to Disha’s family and friends. May your soul rest in peace.” 

Numerous Bollywood and television celebrities have come forward to react to the heartbreaking news of his death. Disha Patani, Kiara Advani, Ekta Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, and Vicky Kaushal are a few stars who expressed their shock over the news of his death.

Anonymous : Nepotism in bollywood needs to change give outsiders more opportunities and roles especially the ones that are damn talented. I wonder how many undiscovered superstars there are that never had a chance or will have. He was everything you want in a hero handsome, strong, had a presence, could dance such a great talent. Cast aside, even though your better then most your competition even i would feel like giving up, in this difficult times he must not have known when next job was going to be coming, probably living hand to mouth. Nearly all the tribute posts basically saying wish I had been intouch/ reached out. This shows me how cold the industry is to outsiders, they literally keep them outside of their circles (didnt even speak to him). From now on i'll be rooting for you industry outsiders most of all. Rip sushant, everyone you got to keep your mindset positive, focus on the positive, fight that voice in your head telling you other wise. If you are unhappy with something in your life only you can do something about this dont give up fight live, you deserve to be here.

Her post was filled by negative comments. Even i wrote not so good things. But now i admits that this issue is of outmost urgency, So that no other parent would loose their son or daughter like this.

Anonymous : Why even post nasty blinds. We as viewers and fans catapult them to stardom and yet are also the ones who forget our humanity, read these blinds, and criticize them for everything. If anything was learned in 2020 I hope it is kindness, empathy, and acceptance. Let’s be kinder. We need to stop enjoying these negative stories. If we have nothing good to say why say anything at all.

Anonymous : Dear Sushant, Shocked by the unexpected news of your demise. I am at a loss for words, equally unbelievable to my eyes. Right from Kai Po Che to Chhichhore, you have always proved your versatility Your role in Kedarnath forever remains your USP The biopic of M.S. Dhoni made me your die hard fan Sarfraz, in PK, is depicted as an optimistic man Your portrayal of the role of Raghu is unparalled Your performance in Pavitra Rishta is universally acknowledged Your presence in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa made you one step closer to stardom Your adroitness in Nestle Munch ad is awesome Thus paying tribute to one of the talented actors of the industry You are the pride of our country.
