Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died on 14th June, leaving the whole nation shocked. His Fans and friends have been honoring him on social media since his demise.

Sushant’s family has also decided to turn his childhood home in Patna into a memorial for the actor.
The 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 all for showering our Gulshan with so much love.
To honor 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, which 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. – Sushant’s family.”
