Sushant Singh Rajput’s family to convert actor’s old home to a memorial, will set up foundation in his name

Today marks the 13th day since Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide and left his family, friends and fans mourning over his demise. The actor bid adieu to the world by hanging himself at his Bandra apartment on 14th June 2020, Sunday. On the 13th day of his sad and unexpected demise, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family has released a heartfelt statement for all his fans and followers. While biding a final goodbye to their beloved Sushant (Gulshan), they announced that his family will turn his childhood home in Rajiv Nagar, Patna into a memorial where his personal memorabilia and belongings will be placed for fans and admirers. The note also expressed, how badly the family is missing SSR.

The note begun with a title ‘Goodbye’ Sushant’. It further read, “The world’s Sushant Singh Rajput was simply Gulshan to us. He was free-spirited, talkative and incredibly bright. He was curious about just everything. He dreamed without restraints, and chased those dreams with the heart of a lion. He smiled generously. He was the pride and inspiration of the family. His telescope was his most prized possession, through which he fondly gazed at the stars. We can’t bring ourselves to accept that we wouldn’t get to hear his easy laughs anymore. That we wouldn’t see his sparkling eyes again. That we wouldn’t hear his endless rants about science again. His loss has created a permanent, glaring void in the family that will never be filled. He truly loved and cherished every single one of his fans. We thank you all for showering our Gulshan with so much love. To honour his memory and legacy, the family has decided to set up Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF) to support young talents in areas close to his heart — cinema, science and sports. His childhood home in Rajiv Nagar, Patna will be turned into a memorial. We will put his personal memorabilia and belongings there that include thousands of books, his telescope, flight-simulator etc., for his fans and admirers.”
