Fans of Sushant Singh Rajput continue to pay rich tributes to their icon in different ways and remember him for his outstanding performances. One such fan of Sushant is an artist in Kolkata who has drawn paintings of the late actor ahead of Durga Puja.

Manas Rai, an artist in Kolkata, paid a heartwarming tribute to the late actor through his painting. He stated that Sushant would have been the appropriate choice to represent Goddess Durga's son Kartik in a movie. The 34-year-old actor was found dead at his Mumbai residence on June 14 and central probe agencies are investigating the matter.

"Sushant Singh Rajput was a very good artist. He had a lot give but sadly he passed away. If a movie would have been made on Kartik, Sushant would have been the apt choice," Rai told ANI.

"This year, Sushant Singh Rajput's face is being created in place of Goddess Durga's son Kartik as a mark of tribute to him," she said.
