Sushant Singh Rajput’s death wrapped the nation in a pall of gloom. When those who never knew him personally haven’t been able to recover from this tragedy, we can only imagine his family’s plight, losing as they did their youngest child.
Sushant’s aggrieved father, KK Singh, disclosed in a conversation with an entertainment portal that the reel life Dhoni was planning to tie the knot next year.
“We spoke about this. He said it wouldn’t be possible during the corona pandemic, and anyway he had a film coming up. Then perhaps in February or March he would consider going ahead with it. That was the last I spoke to him,” he said about the late actor’s wedding plans.
He opened up about Sushant’s quirky obsessions, like how the 34-year-old had splurged Rs 55 lakh to buy a piece of land on the Moon and would use his telescope to keep an eye on his “plot”.
KK Singh also made it known that Sushant’s ex-partner Ankita Lokhande had visited their Mumbai and Patna residences to offer the family her condolences.
Actress Ankita Lokhande made no post on social media over Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and was lambasted by his fans, much like his co-stars Rhea Chakraborty and Shraddha Kapoor were.
Sushant’s Raabta co-actor Kriti Sanon gave a befitting response to those lashing out, saying that the ones who hadn’t made a show on social media the minute the news came in were the ones “grieving for real”.
Earlier today, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family announced their plan to set up a foundation to uplift young talents in the cutthroat fields of 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,” the family said in a public statement.
His family has also not shied away from expressing their dissatisfaction over releasing Dil Bechara digitally.
“As a tribute to the actor, makers should release the film on big screens so that everyone could watch it each easily. So we want the film to be released on the big screen only and nowhere else,” his cousin said.
A remake of the heart-wrenching The Fault In Our Stars, Dil Bechara has a deep sentimental value to it, being Sushant’s last film.
