Sushant’s connection to cricket was MS Dhoni. He had superbly enacted the former Indian skipper in the latter’s biopic which was released in September 2016. Sushant had garnered a lot of praise from the man himself and many others in the industry for his acting skills in the movie.

Apart from that, he acted in the movies like Kai Po Che, which was also his Bollywood debut. His last on-screen movie was Chichhore which was co-incidentally based on youngsters committing suicide after not living up to the expectations.

As far as the news of his suicide is concerned, it has been reported that he was found hanging in his house. He was also reportedly living alone during the lockdown. Moreover, his ex-Manager Disha Salian also breathed her last on June 10 after allegedly falling down from the 14th floor of her friend’s home in Mumbai.
