In the late afternoon on Sunday, the entire Twitter fraternity expressed their shock post the sad demise of ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ star Sushant Singh Rajput.
Reportedly, the actor who gave one blockbuster after another committed suicide in his residence at Carter Road in Mumbai.
It is believed that the actor suffered from depression from the past six months. Sushant came into the limelight through the hit television show ‘Pavitra Rishta’, and made his mark in Bollywood through ‘Kai Po Che’.
Rajput rose to stardom playing the role of former Indian captain MS Dhoni in his biopic. The actor hailing from Patna garnered a substantial amount of praise by replicating the idiosyncrasies, mannerism and nuances of Mahi in ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’.
The superhit actor’s role in ‘Chichhore’ also went on to be appreciated where he played the role of a father whose son committed suicide.
As soon as the news broke, the entire cricketing fraternity took to Twitter to pay condolences for the 34-year old actor.
The likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Anil Kumble, Shikhar Dhawan, Danish Kaneria, Mithali Raj and many others reacted to the shocking news.
