Update : 21 Jan 2022, 13:29

Sushant Singh Rajput, who breathed his last on June 14, 2020, would have turned 36 today. On the occasion of his birthday anniversary, social media has been abuzz with heartfelt tributes pouring in for the actor from every nook and cranny.

The late actor began his career in Bollywood with the critically and commercially successful film Kai Po Che! Later, he went on to appear in several hit films, which gained him immense popularity. 

Sushant is being remembered by his ardent fans, well-wishers, close friends, Bollywood, and family members on social media. Shweta Singh Kirti, Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister who currently lives in California, often shares posts for her brother on Instagram. In May last year, she shared a post for him mentioning that she’s going for a month’s retreat to the Himalayas and will be spending time there cherishing her brother’s sweet-bitter memories. ‘Though his physical body has left us almost a year back, the values he stood for still live on,’ an excerpt from her post read.

On Sushant Singh Rajput’s 35th birthday, his sister Shweta set up a Sushant Singh Rajput Memorial Fund in Physics at the University of California, Berkley, to support graduate students who are interesting in learning astrophysics. This decision was taken upon learning that the ‘Kai Po Che’ actor was himself a science amateur astronomer and astrophysics enthusiast.

‘Dil Bechara’ was Sushant’s last Bollywood film, which was released on Disney + Hotstar in 2020. To honour him, the film premiered free of cost on Disney+Hotstar so that everyone can watch it. Fans from across the globe enjoyed watching the film and soon it became of the highest-rated Bollywood films on IMDb at the time.
