It has been 13 days since the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput and tragic demise has indeed created a huge outrage on social media among the fans. There have been various theories and controversies that have surrounded his death. Now, Sushant’s family has released an official statement regarding the incident and how it has deeply affected them. It has been revealed that the family will open a foundation in his name to encourage new talents in the field of cinema, sports, and science. Additionally, his childhood residence in Patna is going to be converted into a memorial that will have his childhood belongings, telescope, and books for the visibility of the fans.

The official statement read, “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 all 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.

The fans will see Sushant Singh Rajput for one last time in the upcoming Hindi romantic drama, Dil Bechara, which is the remake of the Hollywood film, The Fault In Our Stars. Directed by Mukesh Chabbra, Dil Bechara is scheduled to release on July 24, directly on Disney + Hotstar OTT platform. However, the fans have been disappointed that the film is not having a theatrical release.
