Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has committed suicide at his residence in Mumbai’s Bandra, just five days after his manager jumped off a building.
His domestic help alerted the police after the 34-year-old, actor known for films like ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’, ‘Kai Po Che’, ‘Raabta’ and ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’, was found hanging at his house yesterday.
Police is investigating the case. The reason behind his suicide is not yet known as no suicide note has been found by the police.
Few days ago, Rajput’s former manager Disha Salian was also found dead in Mumbai. She had allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the 14th floor of a building of the Jankalyan area of Mumbai’s Malad.
In his last post on Instagram a week ago, Sushant Singh Rajput had shared a black and white photo of his mother. “Blurred past evaporating from teardrops. Unending dreams carving an arc of smile. And a fleeting life, negotiating between the two…#माँ,” Rajput’s last Instagram post reads.
Earlier, he had said that he was learning coding during lockdown.
“I love computer gaming and always wanted to learn the language behind it. So last few weeks I’ve been trying to learn coding and it has been an extremely exciting process to say the least and yet I’m just scratching the surface…,” he had written on Instagram in April and even shared his coding notes.
Sushant pursued Mechanical Engineering at Delhi Technological University (DTU) before making his foray into acting. He became a household name with his role in popular TV show “Pavitra Rishta”.
Later, he rose to fame on screen with Abhishek Kapoor’s “Kai Po Che” in 2013. He was last seen in ‘Chhichhore’ alongside Shraddha Kapoor. Ironically, the film dealt with the issue of suicides.
