Posted On

Former Australia international Shane Watson, who plays for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) took to Twitter to pay amoving tribute to late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.


Sushant committed suicide at his Bandra house in Mumbai on Sunday; he was just 34.

Sushant had portrayed the role of former India captain MS Dhoni in his biopic ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, and Watson singled out the actor’s performance in the movie to say how talented he was.


“I can’t stop thinking about #sushantsinghrajput. It is just so tragic!!! In The Untold Story, at times you forgot whether it was Sushant or MSD. Amazing portrayal and now the world is much poorer with him not here in it. #gonetoosoon,” Watson wrote as his caption on Twitter, sharing a photo of the late actor.

Sushant’s last rites were held at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Mumbai on Monday.

The news of his death not only left Bollywood in shock but also the cricket fraternity as tributes poured in for the late actor. Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, India captain Virat Kohli and former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh were among the Indian cricket stars that joined the nation in mourning Sushant Singh Rajput.


“Shocked to hear about Sushant Singh Rajput. This is so difficult to process. May his soul RIP and may God give all the strength to his family and friends,” Kohli tweeted.

“Shocked and sad to hear about the loss of Sushant Singh Rajput. Such a young and talented actor. My condolences to his family and friends. May his soul RIP,” wrote Tendulkar.
