The 34-year-old actor was found dead in his house in Bandra on Sunday, June 14, with the police suspecting the cause of death to be suicide by hanging. Incidentally, the last movie that the actor from Patna starred in was Chhichhore, which dealt with the topic of suicide and suicidal thoughts.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sushant Singh Rajput and his family.
