Acclaimed television and Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide on Sunday by hanging from the ceiling fan at his Bandra apartment. The actor's body was found by his maid and friends, who informed the police. He was in depression for the past six months. Sushant, 34, shook the industry from the core by taking a drastic step. B-Town celebrities mourned the loss of a rare gem and poured out condolences on social media.
Arjun Kapoor, on Instagram, shared the screenshot of his last conversation with Sushant a week after Kedarnath's release. The Ishaqzaade actor went on to say that he felt the void of his mother while the film was being celebrated. Arjun added that he could feel Sushant's pain of losing his mother at a young age. Hoping that he is in a better and happier space with his mother, Arjun offered his condolence.
18 months ago... My last msg to him was when he posted about his mom a week after the release of Kedarnath. He was missing her I assume while the movie was being celebrated. I didn’t know him well enough though our paths crossed at yrf, events & screenings every now & then. I can’t say I understood what made him make this choice. I can say I felt the pain he did about losing his bearings & feeling that void of his mother. I hope ur in a better & happier space my friend. I hope u have found ur peace. We will all wonder & try & make sense of what happened today. I just hope & pray that when the circus settles down we as a society in due course realise ur choice wasn’t driven by one singular moment or thing but a culmination of so much that defines a human being not just by the profession u were in. Rest my dear brother Sushant you are now I hope at peace.
Sushant lost his mother in 2002 when he was 16 years old. A mechanical engineering student, Sushant followed his idol Shah Rukh Khan's footsteps into showbiz. He made his TV debut with Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil and then featured in Pavitra Rishta. His first Bollywood film was Kai Po Che! Sushant will be cremated today at 5 pm at Pawan Hans Crematorium in Vile Parle with eight family members in attendance.
