Meanwhile, police have reached his apartment and started the investigation. However, the exact reason behind his death is yet to be revealed. It is being rumoured that Sushant wasn't feeling well since the last few days.
Earlier on June 9, Sushant Singh Rajput's former manager Disha Salian allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the 14th floor of a building in Malad, Mumbai. Though the reason behind the suicide is yet to be ascertained, close friends of Disha while interrogation had revealed that she was suffering from depression.
34-year-old actor Sushant on June 3 had written an emotional note for his late mother on his Instagram post. Remembering his mother, Sushant shared a picture collage and wrote, "Blurred past evaporating from teardrops. Unending dreams carving an arc of smile and a fleeting life, negotiating between the two. #माँ ❤️"
Sushant debuted as actor with Ekta Kapoor's daily soap Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil and rose to fame as 'Manav' of Zee TV's Pavitra Rishta. He got his break in Bollywood with ‘Kai Po Che!’ in 2013. 'M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story', 'PK', 'Shuddh Desi Romance', 'Kedarnath', 'Chhichhore' are his other movies. He was last seen in Netflix movie ‘Drive.’
Meanwhile, condolences poured in following the sudden demise of the young actor.
Sushant Singh Rajput...a bright young actor gone too soon. He excelled on TV and in films. His rise in the world of entertainment inspired many and he leaves behind several memorable performances. Shocked by his passing away. My thoughts are with his family and fans. Om Shanti.

हिंदी फिल्म जगत की युवा प्रतिभा श्री सुशांत सिंह राजपूत के दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण असामयिक निधन पर दुखी हूं। उन्होंने छोटी सी अवधि में ही कुछ अविस्मरणीय भूमिकाएं निभाईं। ऐसी प्रतिभा का इतनी जल्दी चला जाना अपूरणीय क्षति है। #SushanthSinghRajput pic.twitter.com/cvs1jZblFi

Had a glass of juice in his Bandra house at 9 am, apparently. Then hanged himself. Apparently he had become extremely edgy, reckless, and depressed. #SushantSinghRajput
