MS Dhoni actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra home in Mumbai. The actor allegedly committed suicide, the reason, however, is yet to be confirmed.
Reports suggest that a few of his friends were also at home when the actor’s body was discovered. The door of his room was apparently broken after his domestic help did not receive a response from Sushant, after knocking on his door several times close to Sunday noon.
It is also being suggested that the Kedarnath actor was suffering from depression for the past ‘six months’. Sushant Singh Rajput was 34 years old.
Upon hearing the news, Sushant’s PK co-star Anushka Sharma posted a note on her social media handle saying, “Sushant, you were too young and brilliant to have gone so soon. I’m so sad and upset knowing that we lived in an environment that could not help you through any troubles you may have had. May your soul rest in peace.”
His MS Dhoni: The Untold Story co-star Disha Patani posted a photo with the actor, mourning his loss, with no caption however.
Sushant’s Drive co-star Jacqueline Fernadez wrote, ‘Sush… I’m so sorry… RIP’. She also posted a video with him saying that’s how she will always remember him.
