New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: In a news that sent shockwaves across the nation, Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai residence on Sunday. The postmortem report confirmed that the actor died os asphyxiation due to hanging.  

The 34-year-old actor was reportedly suffering from depression for the past several months and that was seen coming from his last Instagram post - a heartfelt note for his late mother. 

The police said that Sushant's body was discovered by his domestic help who alerted them about the shocking incident. "He has committed suicide at his residence in Bandra (sic). Our team is there," Manoj Sharma, additional commissioner of police, Western Region, told PTI.

On June 3, Sushant had shared an emotional post on Instagram about his mother who passed away in 2002.

"Blurred past evaporating from teardrops. Unending dreams carving an arc of smile and a fleeting life negotiating between the two. Maa." the Insta post read. 


In October last year, Sushant had also shared a handwritten note on his Twitter profile, remembering his late mother. "You promised you would be with me forever, and I promised you that I would keep smiling, no matter what. It seems we both were wrong mother," he wrote.   

His death comes just days after his former manager Disha Salian allegedly committed suicide by jumping off a building in Mumbai. Taking to the Instagram stories, Sushant had written, "It's such devastating news. My deepest condolences to Disha's family and friends. May your soul rest in peace."

Sushant Singh Rajput debuted in Bollywood with Kai Po Che! and was last seen in Chhichhore. His other works include Shuddh Desi Romance, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy and Raabta.

May his soul rest in peace and the Almighty give his family the strength to battle these tough times.
