Sports Desk – Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide on June 14 at his Bandra apartment Mumbai. He was 34. Sushant was found hanging at his apartment. Not only Bollywood but the cricketer, politician and the whole of India is shocked by the news of Sushant Singh Rajput death.
Sushant had a special connection with the sport. In his debut Bollywood film, Kai Po Che (2013), for which he had received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut, Sushant had played the role of Ishaan Bhatt, a former district-level cricketer who had fallen victim to politics in team selection. Later he had discovered a young talent in local boy Ali Hashmi, played by Mumbai-based cricketer Digvijay Deshmukh and trained him vigourously.
Three years later, Sushant played the titular role in bopic of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni, titled ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’. For the role, Sushant had trained under former Indian wicketkeeper Kiran More for more than 13 months in a bid to pick the veteran cricketer’s mannerisms. The sportiest players have expressed condolences to their family and friends.
