Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput (34) was found dead at his residence in Bandra. According to the media reports, the actor committed suicide and was found hanging at his home. His death came as a shock for everyone and is truly a tragic event.
His domestic help had informed the police after spotting the actor hanging from the ceiling. According to police, he made the last call from his mobile to a friend. No suicide note has been found. His post-mortem would be conducted in Cooper and Bhabha Hospital.
“It pains us to share that Sushant Singh Rajput is no longer with us. We request his fans to keep him in their thoughts and celebrate his life, and his work as they have done so far. We request media to help us maintain privacy at this moment of grief,” Sushant’s publicist said in a statement.
Born in Patna, Sushant was a single rank holder in AIEEE exams and was in top engineering college. He left all to become an actor, worked hard from TV to reach Bollywood but every person has their breaking point.
He was the character who beautifully dealt with battling suicide in his last movie ‘Chichore’. His character in the movie talks about the importance of life and how it cannot be measured in terms of success and failure.
Reportedly, Sushant was suffering from depression and was consulting a psychiatrist for the last six months.

Sushant’s death comes a week after his ex-manager Disha Salian committed suicide last Monday by jumping off the 14th floor of her apartment in Mumbai.
“It’s such devastating news. My deepest condolences to Disha’s family and friends. May your soul rest in peace,” Sushant had said back then.
His last post on Instagram was dedicated to his mother. Sharing a monochrome collage of her picture, alongside his own, Sushant wrote, “Blurred past evaporating from teardrops, unending dreams carving an arc of smile And a fleeting life, negotiating between the two.”
The actor is survived by his father and four sisters. Our deepest condolences to his family. A gem lost too soon. May his beautiful soul rest in peace!
