Sushant Singh Rajput was an inspiration in Bollywood for every outsider who hoped to make it big in the film industry without any big star connection backing their entry. But not everything was as rose-tinted in his life as the world expected it to be and on 14th June 2020, the MS Dhoni star committed suicide, reportedly after being “disturbed” for the past 10 days.
As per many media reports, Sushant Singh Rajput had been battling depression for the past couple of months and was getting treatment for the same at the Hinduja hospital in Mumbai. But as per the Mumbai Police, he had quit taking the prescribed medicines for quite some time.
According to an India TV News report, the late actor’s servant has shared that Sushant Singh Rajput was very disturbed and stressed for the last 10 days and had been unwell for the last three days. The actor had reportedly stopped talking to anyone lately and told his servant that even though he paid off all his debts, he wasn’t sure if he would be able to afford to pay the salaries of his two cooks and a housekeeper.
As reported by the Mumbai Mirror, on 14th June, Sushant woke up around 6:30 am and was served a glass of pomegranate juice, following which he went to his bedroom and closed the door. But when one of his staff members knocked on his door an hour later to confirm what to make in lunch, they didn’t get any response. The house help tried multiple times but Sushant never responded.
The continued silence from the actor worried the staff, who then contacted his sister in Goregaon, Mumbai. After she arrived, a key maker was called at 1:15 pm and the door was opened. Upon discovering, Sushant’s body, the staff got him down and called the ambulance service.
As of now, the house staff of Sushant Singh Rajput, his neighbors, and relatives are being interrogated about his untimely death.
The last calls made by Sushant had, reportedly, been to his sister and then to actor Mahesh Shetty, his co-star from the TV show, Pavitra Rishta. His cousin has also shared that Sushant was supposed to get married in November. While, lately, the late actor had been rumored to be dating actress Rhea Chakraborty, the duo never confirmed their relationship status.
Though his cousin did not share the name of the girl Sushant was going to marry, he revealed that his family was planning the wedding and making preparations to go to Mumbai to carry out the last minute details.
