It's been 15 days since Sushant Singh Rajput's death and his fans and followers still can't get to grips with the tragedy. So, when Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti posted a picture from the prayer meet at their Patna residence earlier today, condolences started pouring in from his well-wishers all over again. In her Facebook and Instagram post flooded with emotional messages for the late actor, Shweta wrote:
"A Final love and positivity filled send-off to my little brother. Hope you always stay happy where ever you are.... we will always love you for eternity. #sushantsinghrajput"
It takes a great deal of courage to talk about the loss of a loved one, let alone on social media, and Sushant's family has put up an extremely strong face in these trying times. We remember how Shweta had posted a status update on her Facebook, a day after her brother's passing away, sharing how her 5-year-old son reacted to his mamu's demise. She was full of strength and encouraged Sushant's fans, too, to "stay strong" and "not do anything that can hurt his soul".
When I told Nirvanh the news that Mamu is no more, he said “But he is alive in your heart” three times. When a 5 yr old can say something like that... think how strong we should all be..." she had written.
While we are still coping with the loss of such a kind and talented soul, his family has decided to honour the late actor. Recently, in a statement released by Sushant's family, they revealed that they will set up a foundation in his name called Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF) to support young talent in the fields of cinema, science, and sports--everything he was passionate about.
Our prayers are with Sushant and his family.
