Popular actor, Sushant Singh Rajput, who won our hearts with his performances in films like Chhichhore, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and others, committed suicide on Sunday at his Bandra residence. And now as per ETimes report, a fan of the actor from Bihar hanged himself and ended his life after hearing the demise of his favourite star. Sushant also hailed from Bihar with Patna being his hometown. A police official told TOI, “Rajput's sister said he had no financial problems but was under treatment for depression for past six months. His friend Shetty said the actor had called him early on Sunday, but he did not pick up. He said if he had, the situation might have been different."
A day after, Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, the forensic team reached his home for further investigation. As per provisional post-mortem report, the cause of the death is asphyxia due to hanging, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abhishek Trimukhe said on Monday. Though Sushant's family said that the actor was murdered and demanded an investigation. “Actor Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide at his Bandra residence by hanging himself in Mumbai on Sunday,” confirmed Additional Commissioner of Police Dr Manoj Sharma.
Talking to the portal, Bigg Boss 13 contestant Koena Mitra said, “Sushant was such a bright guy, good looking actor and he succeeded with good films. Despite that I read a statement that he was treated like an outsider, not invited at parties and weddings. A lot of people have experienced this, he is not the first one. The film industry will not treat you like family till the time your family doesn’t belong to the industry or if you are not a camp follower. It's pretty sad. He's not the first one and there are many such Sushants in our industry. I would never call him a coward, no one knows what he was going through. No one has the right to call him weak, quitter and that he couldn’t handle it. Maybe he was very angry and knew that it was of no help of showing his anger.” She added, “Those writing essays mourning his death used to mock him because he was a TV star. There is discrimination we have in our industry. If you are from the fashion industry, models can’t do anything, if you are from the TV industry, they say you don’t have a standard, are not of the same category. Imagine the kind of rejection, discrimination John Abraham, Sushmita, Priyanka had to face. I am happy to see them do so well now. A couple of years back a lot of people were behind Priyanka Chopra, trying to finish her. But she was smart enough, she moved out of this mess and has started doing so well.”
