New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The untimely death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide by hanging himself in his Mumbai residence on Monday, has sent shockwaves across the nation.

The ‘Kai Po Che’ actor was reportedly suffering from depression and and his last Instagram post, dedicated to his late mother who died in 2002 when he was a young teen, was on June 3, a foretelling perhaps on what to come.

Almost a year before his death, Sushant had shared a list of 50 dreams he wanted to fulfil, which included some personal goals and philanthropy.

Known for films like "Kai Po Che!", "MS Dhoni: The Untold Story", "Kedarnath", Rajput was found hanging at his Bandra home, the police said. He was 34.

"The last rites will be performed after his father and other family members arrive in Mumbai from Patna tomorrow," his spokesperson said.

Last September, the actor had penned a list of "50 dreams" and posted pictures of the handwritten notes in a series of tweets, which have now gone viral.

Rajput's bucket list included "learning how to fly a plane, training for IronMan triathlon, playing a cricket match left-handed, learning Morse Code, helping children learn about space, playing tennis with a champion tennis ball and doing a four clap push up".

The actor-dancer mentioned that his dream was to not only "chart trajectories of Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn for a week" but also "drive in a blue-hole".

Before turning towards small screen, Rajput was an engineering student in Delhi and one of his dreams was to spend an evening in his engineering college hostel, which was somewhat realised through his last cinematic outing "Chhichhore".

The 2019 film saw the actor play an engineering student who in future conveys a message of hope and affirmation to his son who attempts to kill himself.

"Perform the Double-Slit experiment. Plant 1,000 Trees. Send hundred kids for workshops in ISRO/ NASA. Attend another NASA workshop. Teach coding to visually impaired. Work for free education. Meditate in Kailash. Write a book. Help train women in self defences," the list included.

The actor, who originally hailed from Patna, also wanted to learn at least 10 dance forms, guitar chords of his favourite 50 songs, teach songs to children and help prepare students for Indian defence forces.
