Rajput was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14, leaving people in the film industry and audiences beyond shocked. Sushant's industry friends including actors Rhea Chakraborty, Ankita Lokhande, Kriti Sanon and filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra, on Tuesday remembered the actor on his one-month death anniversary. "One month today. Now I'll never even get a phone call from you," the casting director-turned-filmmaker wrote.
His rumoured girlfriend shared a heartfelt note for him. "My words are incapable of expressing the love we have and I guess you truly meant it when you said it is beyond both of us. You loved everything with an open heart, and now you've shown me that our love is indeed exponential. Be in peace Sushi. 30 days of losing you but a lifetime of loving you," she posted along with pictures of the duo.

Still struggling to face my emotions.. an irreparable numbness in my heart . You are the one who made me believe in love, the power of it . You taught me how a simple mathematical equation can decipher the meaning of life and I promise you that I learnt from you every day. I will never come to terms with you not being here anymore. I know you’re in a much more peaceful place now. The moon, the stars, the galaxies would’ve welcomed “the greatest physicist “with open arms . Full of empathy and joy, you could lighten up a shooting star - now, you are one . I will wait for you my shooting star and make a wish to bring you back to me. You were everything a beautiful person could be, the greatest wonder that the world has seen . My words are incapable of expressing the love we have and I guess you truly meant it when you said it is beyond both of us. You loved everything with an open heart, and now you’ve shown me that our love is indeed exponential. Be in peace Sushi. 30 days of losing you but a lifetime of loving you.... Eternally connected To infinity and beyond
The 35-year-old actor Ankita Lokhande who was also Sushant's ex-girlfriend and has worked in hit daily soap 'Pavitra Rishta' uploaded a picture of a lamp on Instagram and captioned it, "Child of God. " This is the first time Lokhande has shared a post dedicated to Rajput since his demise.
Actress Kriti Sanon penned down a poem reading, "And in between a guilty laughter that pretended to move on, Her eyes shed tears of reality and broke all her delusions."
In his brief but acclaimed career, Rajput was known for featuring in films like "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!", "MS Dhoni: The Untold Story" and "Chhichhore", which marked his last big screen appearance.
