Fact Check: Does viral TikTok video relate to Sushant Singh Rajput? Here's the truth

Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging at his Bandra residence on Sunday, June 14. The 34-year-old 'Chhichhore' actor committed suicide after suffering from severe depression. The death of  Sushant Singh Rajput has left the country in deep shock. Day after actor's demise, a TikTok video that claims to be of Sushant Singh Rajput is being circulated. 

Claim: Sushant Singh Rajput's last video on TikTok

The TikTok video shows a blurred image of a man being restless as he lies on the bed. However, the face of the man in the short clip cannot be seen. The man can be seen frustrated or anguish as he flops about on the bed. This video has been widely circulated on Tiktok as people add the words 'RIP Sushant' or 'Last video Sushant Sing'. The video has been shared on Twitter as well. People are claiming that it is the last video of Sushant Singh Rajput. 

Rating: Sushant Singh Rajput last video on TikTok is FAKE

The clip is actually a TikTok video uploaded on 9 April, 2020 and has nothing to do with the late actor Sushant Singh at all. The video is made by a TikTok user named Ben Esqueda as a joke about being single. The original video is of Ben thrashing on the bed after waking up alone. On top of the video, Ben has added a caption.

"When you fall in love in ur dream and then wake up to an empty bed"

Here's the original video: 

What Sushant Singh Rajput's team said:

"It pains us to share that Sushant Singh Rajput is no longer with us. We request his fans to keep him in their thoughts and celebrate his life, and his work like they have done so far. We request media to help us maintain privacy at this moment of grief"

Sushant's mortal remains were laid to rest at Pawan Hans Crematorium in Vile Parle West, Mumbai in the presence of his father KK Singh, and other close family members and friends. A number of Bollywood and Television celebrities like Sushant's close friend Rhea Chakraborty, Kriti Sanon, Sharddha Kapoor, Ranveer Sorey, Randeep Hooda, Krystle D'Souza, Rithvik Dhanjani, Vivek Oberoi, Udit Narayan, etc attended the last rites.
