BOLLYWOOD personalities Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, producer Ekta Kapoor and filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor on Monday paid tributes to actor Sushant Singh Rajput on his first death anniversary. Rajput, 34, was found dead at his Bandra house on June 14, 2020. Ekta Kapoor shared a series of pictures on her Instagram page and hashtagged the caption, “Remembering Sushant Singh Rajput.” “Wished on the stars with you... Now I wish on a star knowing it’s you,” she wrote. Abhishek Kapoor, who directed Rajput in “Kai Po Che!” and “Kedarnath”, said he is yet to come to terms the actor’s demise. “One year today... Still numb. #omnamahshivaya #sushantsinghrajput #superstar forever,” he wrote. Rajput’s friend and casting director Mukesh Chhabra, who directed the actor in his last cinematic outing “Dil Bechara”, shared Abhishek Kapoor’s sentiment.
“Nothing seems to be the same. The void you left behind still remains. Here’s hoping I’ll see you once again. Miss you brother. #stillnumb #sushantsinghrajput,” he added. Sara Ali Khan, who worked with Rajput in her 2018 debut “Kedarnath”, shared a picture with the late actor and recalled how he was instrumental in “introducing” her to the world of acting.
“Whenever I needed help, advice or a laugh you were always there. You introduced me to the world of acting, made me believe that dreams could come true, and gave me all that I have today. Still can’t believe you’re gone. But every time I look at the stars, the rising sun or the moon I know you’re here. From ‘Kedarnath’ to Andromeda,” the actor wrote. Rajput’s “Chhichhore” co-star Shraddha Kapoor posted a picture with him on Instagram and captioned, “Shine on, dearest Sush.” Rao, who starred with the late actor in “Kai Po Che!”, shared a picture on his Instagram Story, with the caption “Bhai (brother).” Rajput’s “Raabta” co-star Kriti Sanon shared a collage from the look test she did with the actor for the 2017 romantic-drama. Rajput’s former girlfriend, actor Rhea Chakraborty, posted an emotional note on Instagram remembering her “love”. “There isn’t a moment where I believe that you aren’t here anymore. They said that time heals everything but you were my time and my everything.
