Rajput was found hanging in his apartment although reports are yet to be confirmed. Sushant started his career with the television show Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil and achieved fame with Pavitra Rishta. His on-screen chemistry with ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhnade was appreciated and also earned a place in Bollywood. He made his film debut with ‘Kai Po Che!’ in 2012 and was part of several hit films like PK and Kedarnath.
His biggest blockbuster was, however, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, which was biopic of the former Indian captain by the same name. Sushant’s last release was ‘Chhichhore’ in 2019 in which he paired with Shraddha Kapoor. The 34-year-old was also preparing for his next movie ‘Dil Bechara’ slated to release late in 2020.
