Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai home. The actor debuted in Bollywood with Kai Po Che! and was last seen in Chhichhore. Sushant was found hanging at his Bandra home earlier this morning. Some of his friends were also at home when his dead body was discovered. The door to his room was broken and he was found hanging. Initial reports from the police say that he was suffering from depression for the past six months. His friends also told Aaj Tak that the reason behind this extreme step could be depression. A suicide note has not been recovered yet.
Sushant Singh Rajput had hosted a close group of friends at his home on Saturday night, according to sources. This, however, has not been confirmed by any of his friends. He had gone to bed really late and the house help was not surprised that he was not up and about in the morning.
But when he tried to knock on Sushant’s bedroom door around noon, he received no response. That’s when the help called Sushant’s friends, who forced open the door to found him hanging. The house help also called the police, who reached his home and found his friends there. The police have found a file that had details of the treatment Sushant Singh Rajput was currently been undergoing. He was suffering from clinical depression for the last six months.
The initial investigation and inquiries have already taken place at his home by the local police.
Sushant Singh Rajput…a bright young actor gone too soon. He excelled on TV and in films. His rise in the world of entertainment inspired many and he leaves behind several memorable performances. Shocked by his passing away. My thoughts are with his family and fans. Om Shanti.

#SushantSinghRajput we’re in an unforgiving industry. Where from fans to peers we all put us on a pedestal & drop us in an instant. It affects us all & probably did affect him too. What we the reason I never put him as someone who would take his life. Why? Why? We’ll never know.

Honestly this news has left me shocked and speechless…I remember watching #SushantSinghRajput in Chhichhore and telling my friend Sajid, its producer how much I’d enjoyed the film and wish I’d been a part of it. Such a talented actor…may God give strength to his family 🙏🏻

Mental health is a very serious issue and needs more attention than it gets. Being sensitive, compassionate ,gentle and consistently reaching out to those struggling is very important.
