Director Abhishek Kapoor and Pragya were among the few from the Bollywood industry who attended Sushant’s funeral at the Pawan Hans crematorium on June 15. Pragya even shared a picture with Sushant and wrote on Instagram, “Shocked. Angry. Devastated. Heartbroken. You will always be special my boy #sushantsinghrajput.”
Earlier, Abhishek had also penned a heartwarming eulogy for Sushant in an Instagram post, “I am shocked and deeply saddened by the loss of my friend. We made two very special films together. He was a generous and fabulous actor, who worked very hard to breathe life into his characters. I pray for his family, whose loss is immeasurable. He was a huge science buff and consumed by what lay beyond in the universe. I’m going to miss you brother. Stay interstellar,” he wrote. The director had also collaborated with Sushant, later in 2018, for a disaster drama Kedarnath opposite Sara Ali Khan.
