The loss of Sushant Singh Rajput has left an unfillable void among his family, friends and supporters. Sushant Singh Rajput was a self-made man, who breathed his last in his Mumbai house on June 14. Rajput was more than just an actor and the fact that he made it to the film industry in Mumbai from the small town of Purnia in Bihar, speaks volumes about his achievements.
For Rajput, who had a thinking mind which was always curious to know more, his telescope was the most prized possession. There were times when he invited his co-stars to his house just to discuss about the starry objects. Today, his loss looks personal, as his stories reveal how generous of a person he was. Only if his bright smile was not enough to replicate the beautiful person he was.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s family to extend his legacy through a foundation
But a star like Sushant Singh Rajput will always remain immortal through his works. In fact, his family has decided to extend his legacy in his memory by setting up the Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF). The foundation will support young talents in areas which was close to his heart — cinema, science and sports.
Besides the foundation, for ‘Gulshan’, his family has also decided to turn his childhood home in Rajiv Nagar in Patna into a memorial which will possess all his personal belongings including his loved telescope and all the books that were close to his heart. His family, today, released a full statement on the steps they will take to maintain the legacy of their son, brother and most importantly a good human with a ‘bright smile’.
Read the full statement released by his family below:
“The world’s Sushant Singh Rajput was simply Gulshan to us.
He was free-spirited, talkative and incredibly bright. He was curious about just everything. He dreamed without restraints, and chased those dreams with the heart of a lion. He smiled generously. He was the pride and inspiration of the family. His telescope was his most prized possession, through which he fondly gazed at the stars.
We can’t bring ourselves to accept that we wouldn’t get to hear his easy laughs anymore. That we wouldn’t see his sparkling eyes again. That we wouldn’t hear his endless rants about science again. His loss has created a permanent, glaring void in the family that will never be filled.
He truly loved and cherished every single one of his fans. We thank you for showering our Gulshan with so much love.
To honour his memory and legacy, the family has decided to set up Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF) to support young talents in areas close to his heart – cinema, science and sports.
His childhood home in Rajiv Nagar, Patna, will be turned into a memorial. We will put his personal memorabilia and belongings there, that include thousands of books, his telescope, flight-simulator etc, for his fans and admirers. From now on, we intend to maintain his Instagram, Twitter and Facebook page as legacy accounts to keep his memories alive.
We once again, thank you all for the thoughts and prayers.”
