It is indeed ironical the last film he did was based on failures in life proved to a big hit for actr Sushant Singh Rajput. Tragically, he was found hanging at his Bandra apartment on Sunday. He was 34. Depression? Many say, but no one would know. Slight hint here and there he has left, like his last Instagram post is deeply emotonal. “Blurred past evaporating from teardrops. Unending dreams carving an arc of smile… And a fleeting life, negotiating between the two…#Maa” A heart melting post that would be his last, no one fathomed.
