In a statement released recently by Sushant’s family, it was also revealed that the actor’s childhood home in Patna will be turned into a memorial, which will have his personal belongings, including his favorite books and his “possession of the more precious “- his telescope. In addition to being an actor, Sushant Singh Rajput was also a science buff, poetry fan, amateur astronomer, sports enthusiast and also loved to play the guitar. The actor was found dead at his Mumbai home on June 14. He died by suicide, according to police, who are investigating.

“The Sushant Singh Rajput of the world was simply Gulshan for us.
He was free-spirited, talkative and incredibly bright. He was curious about everything. He dreamed without restraint and chased those dreams with the heart of a lion. He smiles generously. He was the pride and inspiration of the family. His telescope was his most precious possession, through which he looked affectionately at the stars.
We cannot bring ourselves to accept that we no longer hear his easy laughs. May we not see his sparkling eyes again. That we would no longer hear his endless speeches on science. His loss has created a permanent and glaring void in the family that will never be filled.
He really loved and cherished each of his fans. Thank you for watering our Gulshan with such love.
To honor his memory and legacy, the family decided to create the Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF) to support young talents in areas that are important to them – film, science and sports.
His childhood home in Rajiv Nagar, Patna, will be transformed into a memorial. We will store his personal memories and personal effects, including thousands of books, his telescope, his flight simulator, etc., for his fans and admirers. From now on, we plan to keep her Instagram, Twitter and Facebook page as legacy accounts to keep her memories alive.
We thank you again for your thoughts and prayers. “
Sushant Singh Rajput’s Instagram account has been saved on the photo and video sharing platform. After the actor’s death, his team launched a website to celebrate his “thoughts, learnings and dreams”. Sushant Singh Rajput’s latest film Dil Bechara will be released on Disney + Hotstar on July 24.
