Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14 in his residence in Bandra, leaving the whole world shocked. Fans of the actor who played the lead in movies such as MS Dhoni the Untold story, Chhichhore etc are still mourning his death.

Two weeks after his untimely demise, now Sushant Singh Rajput's family has released an official statement revealing that they will be handling his social media accounts hereafter, and that they're setting up a foundation to help young talents in cinema, sports and science, and will also transform his childhood home into a memorial.

Sushant Singh Rajput family's statement read "The world's Sushant Singh Rajput was simply Gulshan to us.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, that 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."
