Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput on Sunday (June 14) committed suicide in Mumbai. Sushant was found hanging at his house in Bandra and a domestic help alerted the police.
With a filmography boasting of titles like Kai Po Che!, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story andChhichhore, the Patna-born actor had carved a niche for himself in Hindi filmdom. But he had a lot more to do in his life.
Sushant fulfilled his dream number three in October last year. He had shared a video on Twitter with his fans.
“Live Soon.:) – Dream 3/50 — Play a Cricket match left-handed. #livingmydreams #lovingmydreams”, he had tweeted.
In the short video, Sushant can be seen bowling and batting with his left-hand. He performed both roles with so much ease that one would believe it doesn’t come naturally to him.
