Sushant Singh Rajput, a small town Bollywood actor, was discovered dead a year ago. For everyone, his demise is still a heartbreaking memory. Every day, their fans demand that he be brought to justice on Twitter. In his journey, he had won many hearts.
Sushant Singh Rajput, who began his acting career in 2008 with the TV drama ‘Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil,’ became a household name after starring opposite Ankita Lokhande in Zee TV’s ‘Pavitra Rishta.’ He quit the television profession shortly after reaching the pinnacle of his career to try his luck in the Hindi cinema industry.
He made his Bollywood debut in 2013 with the film ‘Kai Po Che,’ and since then, the gifted actor has continued to enthral his fans and audiences with the charm of his incredible performances.
The prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke award presented him with the ‘Critic’s Best Actor’ distinction to honour the actor who passed away on June 14, 2020.
The Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival’s official Instagram account confirmed the news, writing, “I’m proud of the hard work you’ve put in to get to this point. At the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2021, congratulations to Late @sushantsinghrajput for winning the “Critic’s Best Actor” award. We’re missing you!”
The outstanding actor, who died at his flat under strange circumstances, was last seen in the film ‘Dil Bechara’ opposite Sanjana Sanghi.
The romance film, directed by Rajput’s close friend Mukesh Chhabra, is based on John Green’s famous novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars,’ and features actor Saif Ali Khan in a cameo role.
The film was set to be released in theatres on May 8, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, it was postponed until July 24, 2020, when it was released on Disney+ Hotstar and streamed for free to honour Sushant’s final film.
An inquiry by Mumbai Police recently concluded that it was a case of suicide. Sushant’s family, comprising his father and sisters, had filed a FIR in a Patna court accusing his former girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty, as well as her brother Showik Chakraborty, of aiding suicide and syphoning his assets.
The case was investigated by three central agencies: the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED), and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). But still the mystery isn’t solved yet.
