Sushant Singh Rajput’s last rites performed in Mumbai

Last rites of the Hindi film actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide yesterday, were carried out at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Mumbai today amid heavy downpour. The 34-year-old actor’s death had sent shock waves through not just the film industry but all over the country.

Sushant's father and his two sisters arrived from the actor's hometown Patna, while a few of his colleagues and friends from Bollywood and the television industry were also present. Fans too flocked the venue to catch a last glimpse of the star.

Among industry colleagues who turned up was Sushant's rumored girlfriend, actress Rhea Chakraborty, who, earlier in the day visited Cooper Hospital, where the actor's postmortem was performed.

Film colleagues spotted at the ceremony were Rajkummar Rao, Kriti Sanon, Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Sharma and Vivek Oberoi.

Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor, who directed Sushant in his debut feature Kai Po Che and Kedarnath was present along with wife Pragya Kapoor. Casting director-turned-filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra, who has directed Sushant in the upcoming Dil Bechara, was also present.

Owing to social distancing regulations amid the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, the police reportedly allowed only 20 people to gather near the pyre. For the same reason, all people who attended Sushant's funeral arrived wearing masks. Many of them brought umbrellas, too.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra residence on Sunday morning. He was 34.

The actor became a household name with the TV show Pavitra Rishta before foraying into cinema. He made his big screen debut in 2013 with Kai Po Che, and is also known for his roles in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Shuddh Desi Romance, Kedarnath, Sonchiriya, and Chhichhore.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted, "Sushant Singh Rajput…a bright young actor gone too soon."

Anushka Sharma, who co-starred with Singh in the film PK wrote, "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."

Rajput's last film Dil Bechara co-star Sanjana Sanghi recalled her moments with him on Instagram.

Actress Priyanka Chopra shared a selfie with the actor, along with a message. "I'm stunned," Chopra tweeted. "U must have been in so much pain. I hope u are at peace wherever u are my friend. Gone too soon…"

Akshay Kumar tweeted, "Honestly this news has left me shocked and speechless."

Keeping up with its tradition of creating iconic advertisement about incidents of national and global value, an Amul Butter advertisement has paid tribute to Rajput. The new advertisement captures Rajput as a talent, bringing alive the screen presence and charm he exuded in films such as Kai Po Che!, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Sonchiriya in animation avatars.
