'He was free-spirited, talkative and incredibly bright': Sushant Singh Rajput's family to set up foundation to 'support young talent'
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput who committed suicide on June 14, had many dreams to pursue but unfortunately, fate had other plans for him. He left the world battling depression alone. However, his family is doing everything to make his unfinished dream come true and has announced that they will be starting a foundation in his name – Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF) as a tribute to their late son.
While the whole nation is mourning over Sushant’s death, the 34-year-old actor’s family is focusing on every aspect to keep their late son’s dreams alive.
In a statement, his family has said that Sushant’s death has created a permanent, glaring void in the family that will never be filled and they intend to maintain his Instagram, Twitter and Facebook page as legacy accounts to keep his memories alive.
Read the full statement here:
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, which 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.
Earlier, Sushant’s family had announced that they will create a website as a tribute to the late actor. The website read as ‘Self Musing’ which is a collection of all the thoughts, learnings, dreams, and wishes of Sushant.
