I am personally finding it really hard to write this post. Sushant Singh Rajput was just 6 years younger to me. He was born in the year 1986 and sadly committed suicide yesterday, 14 June 2020. He was only 34.
After the news of his demise came everyone was shocked. Celebrities, politicians, sportspersons and common people, all were surprised to know that he chose the path of ending his life.
PM Narendra Modi and actors like Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma, Akshay Kumar, and many others are shocked!
Even WWE champion shared his tribute to Sushant.
He started his film career with Abhishek Kapoor’s 2013 release ‘Kai Po Che’. He also featured in films like ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshi’, ‘Rabta’, ‘Kedarnath’ and ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’, ‘Chichhore’. He worked as a backup dancer in Bollywood before getting his big break as an actor.
The actor was last seen in Nitesh Tiwari’s ‘Chhichhore’ opposite Shraddha Kapoor.
Sushant was working in Mukesh Chhabra’s ‘Dil Bechara’ when shooting was stalled owing to the nationwide lockdown. The film also starred Sanjana Sanghi in the pivotal role.
As per a report, one of SSR’s cousins told a news portal that the actor was supposed to get married in November. He further added that they were planning for a private wedding in Mumbai.
Here are a few tweets and Instagram posts from various celebs.
Sushant Singh Rajput…a bright young actor gone too soon. He excelled on TV and in films. His rise in the world of entertainment inspired many and he leaves behind several memorable performances. Shocked by his passing away. My thoughts are with his family and fans. Om Shanti.

सुशांत सिंह राजपूत की ख़ुदकुशी की खबर दुःखद है. पता नहीं उनकी क्या मजबूरी थी. लेकिन यंग ऐक्टर्स से कहूँगा जब भी ऐसा बुरा ख़्याल मन में आए 3 इडियट्स का वो डायलॉग याद करना “सोचो जब तुम्हारे माँ बाप तुम्हारी उधड़ी हुई बॉडी देखेंगे तो उन पर क्या बीतेगी”#SushantSinghRajput
