It’s been 13 days since actor Sushant Singh Rajput left us for his heavenly abode and today his family released a statement trying to give words to their grief and pain.
The actor was found dead at his Mumbai residence on June 14. He died by suicide, say the police, who are carrying out an investigation. The versatile actor, known for his works in Kai Po Che, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and many more.
Losing a child is never easy and and after the death of the 34year old actor, his family is going through exact same pain. In their official statement, they announced the setting up of ‘Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation’ to help young talents in cinema, science and sports. They also mentioned that the actor’s childhood home in Patna will be turned into a memorial.
The statement can be read as:
“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 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. From now on, we intend to maintain his Instagram, Twitter and Facebook page as legacy accounts to keep his memories alive.
We once again, thank you all for the thoughts and prayers.”
