Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on Sunday, June 14. The actor’s sudden death has left his fans and colleagues in shock. Whole world is expressing their feelings over his demise on social media. The actor’s father K K Singh on Tuesday told police that his son would often feel “low”, but he was unaware why he was depressed.
Sushant Singh Rajput was known for his excellent performances in films like Sonchiriya, Chhichhore, MS Dhoni The Untold Story, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy among more. The actor was last seen in Netflix film Drive. His film Dil Bechara, directed by good friend and casting director Mukesh Chhabra, is yet to be released. The movie also stars debutant Sanjana Sanghi and Saif Ali Khan.
Besides Dil Bechara, filmmaker Rumy Jafry was also supposed to work with Sushant Singh Rajput in a romantic comedy film, co-starring Rhea Chakravorty. Jafry told indianexpress.com, “We were supposed to start shooting for our unnamed romantic comedy in May, but because of the lockdown, we had to keep the movie on hold. We were sure to get working as soon as the industry would start operating normally again. For the film, Sushant and I met very often in the last one year. He would come home and spend time with my family. I would visit him too. My kids were so shocked with the news and after seeing his pictures that were circulated on social media, they couldn’t even sleep. It was very disturbing. He had become like family to me.”
It has been three days to this incident, still tributes continue to pour in for Sushant Singh Rajput. Sonchiriya director Abhishek Chaubey remembered Sushant as he wrote, “If we look at his career, he was doing well for himself. He had one of the biggest hits of his career in Chhichhore. He got some love for Sonchiriya. He had a film coming. Maybe lately, he felt that people were not responding to his work much. But the fact of the industry is that no matter how many Godfathers or powerful people decide not to work with you, there are so many who still would if you are good. And Sushant always struck me as someone who was confident in his skin. He was a sharp, intelligent man.”
Kriti Sanon, who worked with Sushant in 2017 film Raabta, shared an emotional note on Instagram which read, “Sush.. I knew that your brilliant mind was your best friend and your worst enemy.. but it has broken me completely to know that you had a moment in your life where Dying felt easier or better than Living. I so wish you had people around you to get you pass THAT moment, i wish you hadn’t pushed the ones who loved you away.. i wish i could have fixed that something which was broken inside you..I couldn’t.. I wish so so many things…. A part of my heart has gone with you.. and a part will always keep you alive.. Never stopped praying for your happiness and never will.

Actor Manoj Bajpayee, recently in an online chat with Shekhar Kapur, spoke about his first meeting with Sushant and said, “I cannot forget the image of him coming to me on the first day and suddenly touching my feet. To me, his one gesture questioned all the perceptions that people were floating around him. It said so much about his background. From there, our journey of knowing each other started. He said ‘sir, I’m also from Bihar’. I observed his craft and the way he worked towards getting that perfect shot. Whenever I gave him any suggestion, he was so grateful.”
