YouTube star PewDiePie expressed grief over the tragic demise of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput and called him a “genuinely good dude” in one of his videos.
The renowned Swedish YouTuber was speaking about the then trending hashtag #UnsubscribeTSeries in a video when he went on to remember Sushant.
He said, “I have seen people talk about it and there was something about Sushant Singh Rajput. It was a university talk of this guy. He seemed like such a good dude, like a genuinely good dude. So people were pointing to nepotism in the industry and then it somehow got in clash with T-Series and that is why Unsub T-Series got trending. It’s such a shame he decided to end his life. I don’t know everything about him but from what I saw he seemed a really good dude and someone the industry needs. So it’s a huge loss. Rest in peace.”

As per Hindustan Times reports, WWE champion John Cena also went on to pay tribute to Sushant on Instagram. He shared a monochromatic image of Sushant which shows the late actor in an intense pose.
Australian batsman David Warner had also mourned Sushant’s death. He wrote on Instagram, “Very very sad to hear about this. RIP #sushantsinghrajput.”
Sushant died by suicide at his Mumbai residence on June 14. He was suffering from clinical depression. The actor had marked his Bollywood debut in 2013 with Kai Po Che. In past seven years, he had featured in several hit movies including Neeraj Pandey’s MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Chhichhore by Nitesh Tiwari. Dil Bechara, which is the actor’s last movie he filmed, will feature on Disney + Hotstar on July 24.
The actor’s family have decided to come together to honour his legacy and celebrate his undying passion for cinema, science and sports by setting up Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF) to encourage young talent. His childhood home in Rajiv Nagar, Patna, will be turned into a memorial, where all his personal belongings, that include thousands of books, his Meade 14’’ LX-600 telescope, flight-simulator, will be on display for his fans and admirers.
