Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely death came as a big shock for the industry. The actor committed suicide in his Bandra residence on June 14, 2020.  Recently, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family issued an official statement where they addressed Sushant as ‘Gulshan’.

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."

Sushant Singh Rajput's family while expressing their grief wrote, "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.”
