Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra residence on Sunday, June 14. The news left the Hindi film industry and the country in shock. His fans are shocked after knowing about his untimely and death and are asking just one question -- why he did that? The 34-year actor was the youngest of five siblings and is now survived by his father and four sisters. Sushant Singh Rajput's body was taken to Mumbai's Cooper Hospital where the post-mortem was performed that took place from 10:30 pm to around 11:30 pm on Sunday. He has also tested negative for COVID-19. The last rites of the actor were performed in Mumbai today in the presence of his father KK Singh and other family members who arrived from Patna. 

It has come to light that the last thing Sushant consumed before ending his life was a glass of juice on Sunday morning, at around 10. Then, he locked himself up in his bedroom. He did not respond despite repeated knocks on the door by his domestic help, who then called neighbours. The police arrived shortly afterward and broke into Sushant's flat around 12.30 pm and found him hanging. The police have said there was no suicide note. Sushant was suffering from depression from the last six months and also undergoing treatment in Hinduja Hospital.

In a career that spanned barely over a decade, Rajput got nominated for many awards for his performances in movies and TV shows and won some of these. Rajput's last notable venture 'Chhichhore' saw him portray the role of a sensitive, middle-aged father who resuscitates his son, after the young lad jumps off the window, shattered over flunking engineering entrance exams. The actor would have appeared in his upcoming movie 'Dil Bechara' that happens to be an Indian adaptation of the book The Fault in Our Stars.
