Sushant Singh Rajput passes away at 34
Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his apartment in the morning today by his house help, who informed the Mumbai Police. At the time of his death, there were two of his friends and two house help who were at home with Sushant.
A couple of hours later, Mumbai Police confirmed that Sushant Singh Rajput has committed suicide. No note or message has been found yet. An investigation is going on at the moment to find out what happened.
It has been rumoured that Sushant was suffering from depression allegedly due to the financial problems he was going through and not to mention, the alienation from the industry when his career started to drop. Just last week, Sushant’s former manager took her own life during the lockdown. His friend reportedly told the police that Sushant was very disturbed when he heard of his former manager’s death.
Sushant’s sister confirmed to the cops that he was suffering from depression for over 6 months and that she was aware of his depression diagnosis.
May Sushant finally be at peace. May he rest in peace.
Sushant Singh Rajput is survived by his father and four sisters. His last Instagram post was in the memory of his late mother who passed away in 2002.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s Career on Indian Television and in Bollywood
Sushant became a recognized actor on television when he was paired opposite Ankita Lokhande in ‘Pavrita Rishta’. He made his debut in Bollywood in ‘Kai Po Che’, a film that was successful at the box office. He later got his solo big break in MS Dhoni’s biopic, ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’. The film became a big hit and was Sushant’s first entry in the 100 crore club and also the biggest surprise hit of 2016. Following that, he was signed as the lead in Yash Raj’s ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ , which didn’t do too well at the box office hence hampering any chance of the film getting a sequel. His last big hit was ‘Chhichhore’, which was released last year but the film failed to do anything good for Sushant professionally. His upcoming film ‘Dil Bechara’, which was originally supposed to be released in 2019, will be released on an online streaming soon.
