Sushant Singh Rajput's father, in a statement to the Mumbai police, spoke about the actor's unexpected passing after he died by suicide in Mumbai on June 14, having battled depression for a long period of time.

In an official statement, Sushant's father K.K. Singh mentioned to the police that his son would often feel "low", but was unaware why he was depressed. The director of Sushant's upcoming film Dil Bechara, Mukesh Chhabra, opened up on the impact the news of Sushant's death had on him. "We were supposed to start shooting for our unnamed romantic comedy in May, but because of the lockdown, we had to keep the movie on hold. We were sure to get working as soon as the industry would start operating normally again. For the film, Sushant and I met very often in the last one year. He would come home and spend time with my family. I would visit him too. My kids were so shocked with the news and after seeing his pictures that were circulated on social media, they couldn't even sleep. It was very disturbing. He had become like family to me," he mentioned in a statement to a news agency.

34-year-old Bollywood star Sushant, who had been going through a difficult time emotionally, took his own life on Sunday. He made his Bollywood debut with the film Kai Po Che, and was last seen in the 2019 blockbuster Chhichhore. The actor received critical acclaim for his portrayal of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni in his biopic.
